Sumerian Brewing Company has a lot on their plate right now. They continue to add new accounts, so you can now find their beers at 9 Costco locations, Xfinity Arena, 7-11, Haggen stores and Safeway stores, in addition to your local craft bottle shop. They’ve also worked to get their beers onto Washington State ferries and will also be one of several local craft beer choices available at Safeco Field for the coming 2017 Seattle Mariners season (watch for a Mariners 2017 Season Food & Drink preview coming in early April).
In addition, Sumerian is preparing for their 2nd Anniversary celebration and have also started to release their first canned beers thanks to their new canning line. The first of their beers up in cans will be Hopruption – formerly known as Eruption Double IPA.
Sometimes ‘real life’ can be a pain. I’m a writer/blogger on the side, but I still have a regular, full-time job and the same day-to-day responsibilities as everyone else. That means, just like many of you, I don’t have unlimited time (nor an unlimited budget). This means that, unfortunately, I don’t always make it to all the new Seattle area breweries I’d like to as soon as I’d like to. Of course, that’s a challenging prospect with so many new breweries opening around here all the time.
One of the new breweries that I haven’t found the time to visit yet is Sumerian Brewing Company up in Woodinville. I have enjoyed a few of their beers at some events and festivals I’ve attended, but I really need to visit the taproom and get to know more about them and their beers. With their 1st Anniversary coming up next month, I’ll have to see if I can find the time for a visit.
