I don’t know about you, but I’ve had a pretty crazy last week or so leading up to Seattle Beer Week #8. Between being busy at work (both of them), still mourning a bit for our dog, Bailei, and trying to plan out my Seattle Beer Week 2016 schedule (picking from, literally, hundreds of events), I’ve barely had time to breathe.
The event list for Seattle Beer Week seems to get a bit bigger each year. There are always a few days where there are at least 2 or 3 different events all happening at the same time on opposite ends of town, so you have to make a choice. Hitting every single event is absolutely impossible (and severe liver abuse!), so you have to pick your battles (or is it bottles?)
Now, it’s here. Seattle Beer Week kicks off this evening at Reuben’s Brews in Ballard. They’ll be open at noon today, but the official opening ceremony for Seattle Beer Week won’t take place until 5 pm. The first keg of Daily Pale, the official beer of Seattle Beer Week #8, will be tapped and the Mayor’s Proclamation will be read.
