There are some good places to go in Seattle if you’re looking for butchery, charcuterie, smoked meats, sandwiches, sausages and the like. There are also some good places to go in Seattle if you’re looking for an excellent selection of craft beers or some top notch craft cocktails. Of course, trying to find all of these things under one roof has been a bit of a challenge, until now that is. Set to open this coming Saturday, January 20th in Seattle’s Maple Leaf neighborhood is The Shambles, Seattle’s new North end destination where deli • meats • bar.
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.
