Even though I knew it was coming, Seattle Beer Week (SBW) kind of snuck up on me this year. I can’t believe it kicks off in just 2 days! There are a few events that happen each year that I usually attend so I’m set there. However, I didn’t find much time until this past weekend to look over the rest of this year’s SBW events and choose which ones I’d either like to attend myself and/or that I’d like to suggest to you. I’m here to fix that.
How about you? Have you found the time to look over the ever growing list of events on the official Seattle Beer Week website? If not, don’t worry. I took the time to read through the details of every event that’s been posted for this year’s festivities, and I’m here to give you my suggestions for the best events to pick from for Seattle Beer Week #11. Here we go!
Ten years ago. That’s when it all began. That’s when Seattle area craft beer lovers got to experience the first ever Seattle Beer Week and the first ever official Seattle Beer Week beer (a double IPA from Pike Brewing Company). Back then, many of our favorite local craft breweries and craft beer bars didn’t even exist yet. Whereas today, it seems, we have a craft brewery or craft beer bar around almost every corner.
More craft breweries and more craft beer bars means even more Seattle Beer Week events. Are you ready? Surviving the week (actually 11 days) will take careful planning. I’m here to give you some suggestions on which events you might want to check out. So sit back, if you’ve managed to pick up any yet, grab yourself a can of this year’s official Seattle Beer Week beer – Citrus Galaxy IPA from Georgetown Brewing Company – and take a look a Craft Beer Monger’s Picks for Seattle Beer Week 10.
I don’t know about you, but I’m not much of a golfer. I tried, years ago during my college days. I wasn’t horrible. I just couldn’t quite get the knack of it. I’m not sure I ever broke a score of 100, but I came close once or twice. I plan to start playing again in the next few years. Hopefully I’ll do a bit better this time.
Whether you’re nearly a pro or just a duffer like me, when you’re golfing for charity, it doesn’t really matter how good you are. It’s all about just having some fun and helping those in need. So, set to return on Friday, September 25th is the Ravenmaster’s Charity Golf Tournament, hosted by Black Raven Brewing Company (CBM Sponsor). This year’s tournament will benefit Attain Housing: “Bringing our community together to partner with homeless families by providing affordable housing and empowering them with practical case management and hope.”
