Beers Made by Walking – Hiking Inspired Craft Beer – Tonight at Naked City

BMBWThere are two things that I count amongst my greatest passions since moving to Seattle: craft beer and hiking. Thanks to our proximity to breathtaking landscapes, Seattle is rife with opportunities to spend our time outside. Add to that some of the nation’s best breweries and it is only natural that this is a sentiment shared by many people of our great city. It is this love for craft beer and hiking that Beers Made By Walking aspires to convey. Beers Made By Walking (BMBW) is a program centered around the nexus point of these two pastimes. BMBW is a program that gets local brewers out into nature to inspire them and introduce them to native plant species culminating in the production of new craft beers that capture the essence of the natural landscape. Tonight (10/23, 6-9PM) at Naked City you have the opportunity to taste what these brewers discovered on their expeditions into nature. Hope to see you there!

freshhopFrom The Beer Junction:

We’re in the middle of one of the most anticipated beer seasons of the year…the Fresh Hop Season! Hop harvesting takes place just once a year and allows brewers a rare opportunity to use hops fresh from the vine, which imparts a uniquely bright taste and aroma. We’ve been tapping lots of fresh hop beers this month and have many more to go. Tomorrow night (Thursday 10/23 from 5-8PM) test your palate as we will be sampling 5 fresh hop beers in a blind tasting event for just $4. After you try all five beers, you’ll vote for your favorite, and then we’ll give you the answer key. What’s a fresh hop beer? Click HERE to learn more. 

Urban Family Opening New Location in Magnolia

UFBUrban Family Brewing, a small craft brewery that opened a couple of years ago in Ballard. They offered a solid number of beers right away, sadly (due to limited production capabilities) very few of them were of their own making. This drove Urban Family to search for a new location, which they ultimately found in Magnolia. To the best of our knowledge they are the only brewery located in the neighborhood. Thanks to the new space, Urban Family will be able to significantly increase their production and keep their excellent beer flowing, which is great news for all of us! The grand opening of the new space takes place this Friday (10/24) at 4PM.

Pumpkin Carving and Horror Flicks

pumpkinhorrorSince opening, The Pine Box has made a point of hosting some fun events during the Halloween season. This should come as no surprise, being a beer hall inside a renovated funeral home comes with certain responsibilities. This Wednesday (10/22, 7-1030PM) The Pine Box will be hosting a pumpkin carving and horror flick showcase, one of our favorite events every year. This year they will be showing Evil Dead II and Poltergeist.
