Craft Beer Monger’s Picks For Seattle Beer Week 2016 – UPDATED

SBW8Logo1

I’ve been a fan of great craft beer ever since having my very first craft beer (a Red Tail Ale from Mendocino Brewing Company, if memory serves).  However, I didn’t really immerse myself into the Seattle Craft Beer scene until sometime in 2010.  Before that I was, of course, still enjoying craft beer, but my journalistic focus was geared more towards the console video game market.  I used to operate a couple of console gaming review sites (focusing mostly on Xbox), which are now closed down.

That means I haven’t been attending Seattle Beer Week for as many years as some of you out there.  The first time I attended a Seattle Beer Week event (and actually knew that I was doing so), was back during Seattle Beer Week #4 in 2010, and the first Seattle Beer Week I ever wrote about was Seattle Beer Week #5 in 2011.  Right now, that sure seems like a long time ago.

Now, with 2016 upon us, we’re just one week away from the kickoff of Seattle Beer Week #8.  That means it’s time once again for me to give you my picks for what sound like the best events at this year’s Seattle Beer Week, just as I’ve done each year since 2012.

Even though Seattle Beer Week 2016 doesn’t start until next week, I hope you’ve been doing a bit of pre-celebrating by enjoying some of this year’s Official Seattle Beer Week beer, Daily Pale from Reuben’s Brews, which has been available since mid April.

Now, on to the events.  Seattle Beer Week is 10 days long and, for each of those 10 days, I’m going to list for you what I feel are the top two or three events to attend.  These picks are, of course, just suggestions.  Please feel free to review the full list of available events yourself on the Seattle Beer Week website and make your own plan of attack.  Here we go.

Thursday – May 12th:

  • The Official Opening Ceremony of Seattle Beer Week 2016

Location: Reuben’s Brews
Time: 5:00 pm

This is where it all starts.  Reuben’s Brews will be open starting at noon, and the official tapping of the first keg of Daily Pale will commence at 5 pm.  According to Seattle Beer Week: “Expect a big party, including raffles and more! Noon until 10 pm.”

This is also the first stop on the opening night pub crawl.

  • Any other stop on the opening night pub crawl

Location: Brouwer’s Cafe (6:15 pm), Beveridge Place Pub (7:30 pm), The Pine Box (8:45 pm) and Naked City Brewery & Taphouse (10:00 pm).
Time: See above

With stops in Fremont, West Seattle, Capitol Hill and Greenwood, at least one of the stops on the opening night pub crawl should be fairly close to you. Stop on in and kick off Seattle Beer Week right by joining in the festivities.

Friday – May 13th:

  • Underberg Back In Black Stout Fest

Location: Brouwer’s Cafe
Time: 11:00 am (all day)

Taking place each year at Brouwer’s Cafe, the Underberg Back In Black Stout Fest brings together all the biggest, boldest, darkest stouts available.  Sure, it may be getting warmer out there, but I’ve never been one to refuse a delicious stout.  Besides, the somewhat dungeon-like atmosphere of Brouwer’s will help protect you from that evil sunlight (unless you sit out on the patio, of course).  The full tap list for this year’s Stout Fest hasn’t been announced yet, but check back as I will update this article when the list becomes available.
