Pyramid will construct the keg tree from 322 stainless steel empty beer kegs. At ten layers of kegs, the tree will reach 24 feet in height, contain more than 1,300 feet of LED lights, weigh 13,500 pounds, and be topped with a Pyramid Brewing neon sign.

For the party the Alehouse parking lot will be converted into a winter wonderland. In addition to the keg tree, ice sculptures, and reindeer from 5:00-7:00pm, Pyramid will host a DJ, a six-person Santa’s sleigh, and a photo contest to win a ski chair.

From the beer garden, the brewery will pour a number of wintery brews including the seasonal classic Snow Cap Winter Ale and a special Gingerbread Stout brewed just for the party. Perfect for a chilly night, the Stout is smooth and creamy, with holiday pie flavors from ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove.

“It’s easy for the gigantic keg tree to steal the show but the most exciting part of the event for us is that we’re able to give back to our local community,” said Pyramid Alehouse General Manager, Michael Simenstad, “We recognize that hunger is an issue in our region, so we’re thankful to partner with the Food Lifeline of Western Washington to provide meals throughout the year.”

The November 30 cash donation to Food Lifeline of Western Washington is part of Pyramid Brewing’s BrewsThat Do initiative, which launched earlier this year as a way to fight hunger in the Pacific Northwest.

Pyramid is giving a portion of its 2019 Washington and Oregon beer sales to Food Lifeline of Western Washington and Oregon Food Bank respectively. The check cut at the Keg Tree party includes the Washington portion of the commitment through October, so the total donation amount will keep rising through the holidays as drinkers continue to purchase Pyramid’s beer. For every case of beer sold, Pyramid’s contribution provides up to three meals through the food bank.

For those looking for more opportunities to give, Keg Tree event visitors may also drop off canned food at the event and donate directly at Food Lifeline’s information booth.
