Rise Of The Centaur Cellar Fest Is Coming To Toronado – UPDATED 1/26


Toronado Seattle first opened their doors just this past August.  They’re the sister bar to the original Toronado in San Francisco (est. 1987) and their second location in San Diego, which opened back in May if 2008.  Toronado has a reputation as a craft beer bar with a great tap list and Toronado Seattle doesn’t disappoint.  With 40 rotating craft taps, an extensive bottle list and an eclectic menu featuring local, sustainable ingredients and a chef practiced in the art of charcuterie, it’s a great new place to have some excellent craft beers and some delicious food.

Over the past few months, Toronado has hosted several brewery tap takeover nights and ‘take the pint’ nights (where you get to take the glass home with you), but they have yet to host a full on ‘festival’.  Well, that’s about to change.  Starting on Thursday, January 29th and running through Monday, February 2nd, Toronado Seattle will be hosting the first (annual?) Rise Of The Centaur Cellar Fest.  Set to feature 30+ barrel-aged beers, sour beers and other rare beers, it’s a great excuse to head to Toronado, especially if you haven’t check them out yet.

UPDATE – The list below is now the final/confirmed tap list for the fest.

Here is the tap list from Toronado Seattle:

No word yet on whether or not there will be any special menu choices to accompany this impressive tap list but, even if there aren’t, Toronado’s regular menu should satisfy.  I hope to attend this festival on Thursday the 29th, but I may not be able to make it until Friday the 30th.  Hopefully, if I can’t make it till then, they won’t have blown many taps yet.  I hope to see you there.
