It’s no secret that Seattle has become quite the beer focused city. The number of breweries located within Seattle city limits has exploded to a staggering 43 (according to a list put together by the Washington Beer Commission) and many of those have appeared just within the past few years. As more and more people “think local”, they look to local breweries for variations of their favorite microbrews and shun the big name beers found on supermarket shelves. Well, Seattle Magazine’s BREW Seattle on October 10th, 2014 brings local to the masses. This 2nd annual event presented by BevMo (@BevMo) showcases Seattle beer and only Seattle beer. The event is the largest tasting that honors Seattle beer history and only breweries that brew within the city are invited. There are even a few cideries thrown into the mix since, as we know, the term “gluten-free” is quite popular in our fine city. Included in your ticket price is delicious tastes from over 20 local breweries and unlimited BBQ (yes, I said unlimited and BBQ in the same sentence. Commence happy dance!) provided by Pinky’s Kitchen (@pinkyskitchen). No picked over finger foods here folks. This event provides beer AND tons of BBQ in one happy package. Where else can you get that? This year’s event is also being held at the new Fremont Foundry (@fremontfoundry), a beautiful new venue that I know I’ve been eager to check out. Tickets are just $40 and can be purchased here. Want to follow details about the event on the Twitter? Check out hashtag #BREWSeattle for the latest news and info.
But WAIT, there’s more! Everyone knows free is the best price, so Sips & The City is giving away a pair of tickets to this beer-tastic event! Feeling lucky? Just leave a comment to this post and tell me what your favorite Seattle brewery is. Easy as that. Make sure to leave your email address so I can contact you with details on how to claim your prize if you win! A random drawing from all comments received will be done Thursday October 2nd. Good luck!
