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.”
