Rooftop Brewing Renews Their Beer Trumps Hate Campaign For 2018

The current political climate in this country has many people divided. With such diametrically opposed views on so many different topics, it’s enough to make your head spin. However, don’t let yourself get drawn into the ‘Us vs Them’ mentality where you start to categorize and label everyone. That only leads to blind hatred because, as you categorize everyone, you could then easily let yourself start to hate anyone who falls into certain categories.

Don’t let it happen.  Don’t fall into the trap of hate.  We’re stronger than that and y’know what? Beer is stronger than that.  Rooftop Brewing Company understand this which is part of why, last year, they launched their Beer Trumps Hate campaign. Now, for 2018 they’ve released the latest beer to support their Beer Trumps Hate campaign: Imperial Peach Mint IPA.  Brewed with peach puree and fresh mint, Imperial Peach Mint IPA has tropical fruit flavors and an effervescent character from the mint.  It’s available now at Rooftop Brewing and several restaurants/bars around town and several events are scheduled to help raise awareness.  This release in the Beer Trumps Hate campaign will support Washington Wild.

Seattle’s First Cheese And Meat Festival Arrives In April

CraftBeerMonger.com is, of course, primarily about craft beer.  Of course, you can’t have craft beer without food and what are two types of foods that go great with craft beer?  Cheese and meat.  In addition to being a huge fan of great craft beer, I’ve always appreciated the artistry surrounding the practices of both cheese-making and charcuterie.

Coming up on Saturday, April 29th, McCaw Hall will host Seattle’s first ever Cheese and Meat Festival as a way to celebrate the fine arts of cheese-making and charcuterie.  The Cheese and Meat Festival has also partnered with Food Lifeline for the inaugural Seattle event and proceeds from the Cheese and Meat Festival ticket sales will go directly to Food Lifeline.
