Summer is fading away in Seattle.  Our temperatures are down, the rain is back and the leaves are already starting to turn.  Heck, I’ve even already started drinking Oktoberfest beers (the official dates for Oktoberfest this year are September 17 thru October 3).  Fall is still officially a couple of weeks away though, so there’s still time for a few more Summertime celebrations before we welcome back the grey skies and rain for months.

Stogies n Hops (CBM Sponsor) is all set to celebrate the end of Summer with their 3rd Annual Summer End Pig Roast, which is also a celebration of the 20th Anniversaries of both Firestone Walker Brewing Company and Stone Brewing Company.

Seattle Beer Week Kicks Off Today

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.

Stogies n Hops’ Annual Pig Roast With Firestone Walker Happens Tomorrow

SHFW2015PigRoast

I’m a big fan of Firestone Walker Brewing Company‘s beers.  The quality and consistency of every beer I’ve had from them is simply top notch.  Some of my favorite beers of all are Firestone Walker beers such as Double Jack (Double IPA), DBA, Parabola, Stickee Monkee, §ucaba and more including their ever changing but always delicious annual Anniversary offering.

I’m also a big fan of a good pig roast.  Well cooked pork is sinfully delicious and, of course, pairs well with many different styles of beer.  If you’re a fan of these wonderful gastronomic delights as well, then you’re in luck.  Tomorrow (Saturday, September 12th), Stogies n Hops (CBM Sponsor) is hosting their annual Pig Roast with Firestone Walker.
