Brouwer’s Beer and Burger Battle has consistently been one of our favorite events every Seattle Beer Week. However, this year, Brouwer’s opted to push the event until later in the year. Yeah, we were disappointed. But it gave us an awesome event to look forward to this summer. So here is what you need to know about this weekend’s event:
Usually scheduled during Seattle Beer Week, we decided to switch things up this year and host this event in July, as it’s a crowd favorite!
For those of you unfamiliar with the event the formula is simple. We invite breweries to attend, and ask that they each craft a special burger to be paired with 1 of the 4-5 beers they send us. Two of those beers should be less widely distributed (somewhat rare).
Big Time Brewery & Alehouse – Now with a new head brewer, and owner. The brewery has won the competition the last two years. Now they have some big shoes to fill if they are to win for a third year in a row.
Reuben’s Brews – First time at the competition—Head Brewer Adam Robbings and company are excited to be part of this. I have heard that they are vegetarian—that would be a first.
Breakside Brewery – Ben Edmunds and his Portland crew have been coming up with some very creative beers, and food to go along with it.
Ballast Point Brewing & Spirits – These guys have been putting Grapefruit and other spices etc in their beers for awhile now, we are looking forward to what they come up with for this event.
