Seattle might be the perfect location for this event and it’s certainly the perfect week, it is Seattle Beer Week after all! The two sessions on Saturday, four hours each starting at 12 and 6pm, will feature over 50 chefs creating bacon inspired tastes and over 100 beers available in three ounce tastes. In addition to the imbibing the event planners have lined up free food demos, beer schools, activities and local bands to provide a soundtrack to the day. Come rain or shine this event should prove to be a blast for all in attendance.
While there are two levels of tickets, both will get you all-inclusive access to the event; the general admission tickets start at $59 and the VIP tickets start at $99. The VIP tickets will get baseball lovers a private tour of the stadium, access to an exclusive lounge with private restrooms, light fare and rare American craft beer; yes please!
Breweries attending include area favorites like Georgetown, Elysian, Fremont, and Pike brewing and this former San Diego girl’s personal favorites of Stone and Ballast Point including many others from around the country. Important to note the breweries will have their own people pouring the beer and available for answering questions during this event! Area restaurants appear equally excited with local favorites like Pike Place Chowder, Theo Chocolate, Ladro and the perfectly paired Lecosho (their logo is the noble pig) partaking in the day’s festivities.
