Unabridged – Black Raven and Stone Collaboration – Release Events

UnabridgedFrom Black Raven:

After months of sparse emails, wild ideas and a couple of flights we were able to brew a beer with Stone Brewing‘s small batch manager Steve Gonzales in April of 2014. He and Beaux decided on a Saison style aged in both red and white wine barrels (both French and American oak) with sumo mandarins and acacia chips added in secondary. The result shows each brewer’s affinity for complex, oaked beers utilizing specialty ingredients that stray from the beaten path. To roll out the beer we’ll be hosting releases around the greater Seattle area and the eastside. Unabridged will be available in 500mL bottles and draft. This collaboration was made only once and will be released tomorrow (9/15/14).

Tickets on Sale Now for BREW Seattle

brew-seattle-logo406BREW Seattle came about last year when Seattle Magazine decided to host their own beer festival and was contemplating a theme. With all of the different beer-centric events this city sees throughout the year it seemed like there was still one thing missing, an event that focused solely on the multitude of breweries that make Seattle a craft beer mecca. With BREW Seattle that void was filled. This event is a means of paying homage to the almost 50 breweries producing fantastic beer within our city limits. Last year’s inaugural event took place in Pioneer Square, however this year’s will take place at the Fremont Foundry on Friday, October 10. Tickets (purchase here) for the event will cost $40, which gets you: a mini-mug for tasting, 6 tasting tokens, unlimited BBQ from Pinky’s Kitchen, beer floats from Bluebird Brewery, fresh produce from Farmstr, and live music.
