Naked City Prepares For Their 10th Anniversary

Despite the fact that I just don’t get there often enough, I have a strong affinity for Naked City Brewery & Taphouse.  As I’ve said many times before, Owner and Head Brewer, Don Webb truly loves his work and it shows in the quality of the beers Naked City produces.  Some of my favorites of theirs over the years have included their Big Lebrewski Russian Imperial Stout, Rye Barrel Aged Old 48 Stout, The Can In Black Malt Liquor and Old Proper, their English Style Barleywine.  Not to mention their popular, seasonal triple IPA, Cry Me A River, which you should be seeing again soon as the Hop Mob Triple IPA Roadshow returns next month.

Now, with well over 320 distinct beers under their belt, Naked City is preparing to celebrate their 10th Anniversary with the release of a beer that will be the first in a series of 10 collaboration beers along with a series of 10 concerts for charity.

Here is the full press release from Naked City Brewery & Taphouse:

Seattle, WA – The year 2018 brings a special milestone – the 10th anniversary of Naked City Brewing. With hearts full of gratitude, the Naked City crew is celebrating ten years with ten months of collaboration beers, food pairings, charity concerts, and the Décima, a craft beer odyssey.

In partnership with many beloved brewers, including 21st AmendmentPikeSilver City, and Flying Bike, Naked City will release one official beer each month from January to October—and a handful of surprise beers to be announced along the way.

The first beer in the 10-for-10 series is an imperial saison brewed with a variety of malts and infused with lemongrass, orange peel, and tart Montmorency cherries. Naked City head brewer Don Webb collaborated on the brew with Tomas Munoz, who gave Don is first commercial brewing opportunity at Stix Pizza and Brewing Company.

And so begins a beer odyssey known as the Décima, a poem in ten beers. Beer lovers can pick up a Décima punch card at either pub anytime after the first 10-for-10 beer is released. Beers will be released monthly until the big 10th Anniversary Parties at both pubs in October 2018, when completed Décima punch cards can be turned in for a complementary 10th Anniversary Décima pint glass.

At the Greenwood pub, a special series of ten anniversary Naked Sessions concerts will benefit charities chosen by the artists. Tomo Nakayama and Little Spirits take the stage in the Screening Room at 8pm, on Saturday, January 27, to benefit Facing Homelessness. Tickets are $10.

Naked City Brewery & Taphouse strives to carry on the rich tradition of the American public house, where great food and delicious beer set the table for community life. The brewpubs in Greenwood and Camano Island host a variety of cultural events each month.
