Raise a glass to find a cure with Green Flash

This Friday, September 25th, we welcome Green Flash for an evening to find a cure for breast cancer. This is something that is close to many of us and we would like to invite you all to raise a glass to find a cure!
From Green Flash:
"Join Green Flash District Sales Manager Bryan Lee at one of Seattle’s premier craft beer bottle shops for a night of special beers and fund raising for Breast Cancer Research. We will have plenty of Green Flash Brewing Co. and Alpine Beer Company on tap including this year’s special TC Beer. Say Aloha to Treasure Chest 2015, an exotic pink IPA brewed with grapefruit, prickly pear juice, and hibiscus flowers. Erupting with fruit-forward complexity, 100% Mosaic hops present aromas of heady citrus and refined stone fruit.

The pleasantly bitter flavors of the hops are enhanced by the addition of fresh grapefruit juice. Offering balance to offset the bold citrus notes, prickly pear juice imparts a peppery-sweet kick in the finish. Tropical Hibiscus flowers give this beer a naturally pink hue, a nod to the official color of the Treasure Chest mission.
Come out for a night of great beer and help raise some money for a great cause. You can even take home some of 2015’s Treasure Chest Beer, as we will have it available in 22 ounce bottles as well! SAVE THE TATAS!"
The event starts at 5pm, see you all then!

Summer Keg Rentals

Planning an event this summer and thinking about getting a keg or two? Call us up and we can help you plan for all your beer needs. 4th of July BBQ, weddings, family get together camping trips, we can get you what you need. We aren't a huge shop so we don't have kegs warehoused here to sell at a moments notice but with a week heads-up, we can order just about anything for you and it will be fresh. We can help decide on what beers to get, how much to buy etc. and we've got taps to rent as well. We also don't require kegs to be back within a week so long as you give us notice when you purchase it. You can buy a keg or two for your home kegerator without fear of being charged a deposit.  We also offer 10% off for full case purchases of beer you special order, so if you need cans for a rafting trip or don't want to gamble that your guests will finish a whole keg, buying cases in bulk might be the way to go and still save. Call us up (206) 633-BIER.
