It’s over…

May 24, 2010

Seattle Beer Week that is.  Next year, I think I will take some vacation days so that I can partake in more events.  As it was, I only made it to four events. I know, pretty sad.

My favorite event was the Good Beer Hike 5k (of course) that Dave  from UrbanBeerHikes and I put on.  It was a a fun filled afternoon of walking and beer drinking in some of downtown Seattle’s best Beer spots.  We’ve received  good feedback on the event, and look forward to doing it again next year.

They CANAfter over doing it on the first Saturday, it was a couple days before venturing back out.  On Tuesday night LushC and made it down to Full Throttle Bottles for “Tri-Can-Athon” where we sampled fine craft beers, all from cans.  Oskar Blues, 21st Amendment and local boys 7 Seas were all there, showing off what they can do.

Firestone Walker Union Jack IPA

Firestone Walker was at Elephant & Castle on Wednesday night.  They brought with them some very excellent beers. Both The Double Barrel Ale on Cask and the Velvet Merkin were incredible, if you see them, you must try them.( The Union Jack IPA wasn’t so bad either.)  Every FW beer came with a free souvenir pint glass, so we left the evening with a new set of glassware.

Thursday, Night New Belgium did a Flight of pairings at Beveridge Place Pub.  Unfortunately, after previously eating a great dinner, and drinking two beers, by the time the time came for the New Belgium Flights, I was to full.  If they hadn’t been 18 bucks I probably would have done it anyways.

After three nights in row, it was time for a break. On Saturday, we had a wake to attend in the afternoon and then headed up to Bellingham in the evening. I failed to get tickets for Last Call, and even though they were available at the door, I just couldn’t find my way to a Beer Festival on Sunday. Besides, I needed to save my liver for my Memorial Weekend trip to White Salmon and Hood River.

Many thanks to the Seattle Beer Collective for putting on such an amazing week (11 days) of beer events!

Yeah, I better put in my vacation request for next year.

Cheers,

Dear FTC, other than the pint glasses, nothing was received for free,and those were not received for writing this post.  If you make it to Seattle Beer Week next year, I’ll go have a beer with you.
