We are only two days away from the start of our favorite time of year – SEATTLE BEER WEEK!
As any good SBW’er knows, preparation is the key to a great Seattle Beer Week experience. You need to be careful not to burn out quickly in the first few days. Nor do you want to be too conservative in your early approach, you’ll end up missing some awesome events.
To that end, every year we like to highlight a few events throughout the duration that we consider “can’t miss,” and share them with all of you. Below is a list of this year’s events that you do not want to miss. After checking them out, hop over to our poll to let us know which events you’re most excited about! Cheers!

Considering all the breweries that have sprouted up in recent years around Seattle, and the numerous options for food and drink in Capitol Hill, it seems strange to think that there was no small craft brewery up on the Hill. Well that is about to change. After months of anticipation, Outer Planet Brewing is set to open their doors to the public for the first time this afternoon at (4:30PM, 2/20). A nano-brewery in the ground floor of a micro-housing development, it seems like the perfect fit for CH.
