Dine With Lark, Cloudburst & Holy Mountain During Seattle Beer Week

 

As I’m sure most of you already know, Seattle Beer Week kicks off next Thursday, May 4th.  Exactly one week later (but still during Seattle Beer Week, which continues until the 14th), Seattle’s premiere artisan-focused restaurant, Lark, will be hosting a gourmet beer dinner, featuring their own artisan cuisine and beers from two of Seattle’s newest and hottest breweries: Cloudburst Brewing and Holy Mountain Brewing.
