The 14th annual celebration of all things beer in Seattle kicks off this Friday. For a solid, action-packed week at various locations around the Seattle area beer lovers are provided an opportunity to join the festivities and observe Seattle Beer Week.
Here are a few events happening on Friday, May 19th, the first day of SBW 14.
Official Seattle Beer Week Kickoff at Stoup Brewing. Each year, the folks at Seattle Beer Week partner with a local brewery to produce the official SBW beer. The beer officially releases at Stoup Brewing on Friday at 5:00.
This year, the official SBW beer is described as a hoppy pale ale. “We kept the ABV moderate and the hop additions bright for a beer that will fuel the party all week long. Mosaic, Citra, HBC 586 and Simcoe pack aromas and flavor of citrus, berry and mango.”
Seattle Cask-O-Rama at Beveridge Place Pub. Starting at 5:00, they’ll serve a selection of Seattle-brewed beers straight from the firkins, the way God intended. They’ll line eight casks up on the bar top and offer the beers in taster flights or in full pours. The experience is very Seattle and the Bev has been doing it for a long time.
Live Music, Dick’s Burgers, and (Hopefully) Sunshine at Ounces Taproom and Beer Garden. The Dick’s Drive-In Food Truck makes a rare stop in West Seattle at Ounces. The bar will serve $6 pints of the SBW beers and Hayward Sun will provide the live music.
