BREW Seattle Returns For A Second Year (Updated 10/2)

BREW Fliers

Last October, I told you about Seattle Magazine’s BREW Seattle, the first Seattle beer festival that was made for Seattle Breweries only.  Last year’s event took place on November 14th, 2013, hosting 22 Seattle breweries and featuring food from several different Seattle eateries, including: Chopstix, El Camion, Naked City Brewery & Taphouse, Pinky’s Kitchen and more.  You can view more photos from last year’s event HERE.

At last year’s event, attendees had the opportunity to vote on Brewery of the Year.  In 2013, that honor went to Big Al Brewing, who will be returning as this year’s defending champion.  Will Big Al be able to retain their title for 2014?  Why not help decide.  This year’s event takes place on October 10th and will feature over 25 Seattle Breweries and even more great local food.


Here is the list of breweries confirmed so far for this year’s event:

  • Big Al
  • Big Time Brewing
  • Bluebird Brewery
  • Elliott Bay Brewery
  • Elysian Brewing
  • Epic Ales
  • Fremont Brewing

In addition to 6 5oz beer tastes (additional tasting tokens can be purchased at the event – 3 for $5 or 10 for $10), the price of your ticket also includes unlimited Pinky’s BBQ (think pulled pork, mac and cheese, coleslaw – the works!), ice cream beer floats, music and giveaways.  Follow THIS LINK to purchase your tickets.  Don’t delay, as last year’s event sold out pretty quickly.  I hope to see you there.
