North Seattle breweries compete at Great American Beer Festival this weekend

I know I write about beer and beer events a lot, but this is the granddaddy of them all – this like the beer Olympics.  Or the beer World Cup.  I’d say it’s like the Superbowl or the World Series, but I’m not really into football or baseball.  So let’s stick with the World Cup.

Five north Seattle breweries are heading to Denver, CO this week for the Great American Beer Festival – a three-day fest and competition between hundreds of breweries from all around the country, beginning Thursday, September 29th. Roughly 25 or so breweries from Washington are competing, so let’s cheer on our north Seattle neighbors!

Hales Ales – 4301 Leary Way NW (Ballard)

Big Time Brewery – 4133 University Way NE (U-District)

The Ram – 401 NE Northgate Way (Northgate)

Three Skulls Ales – Pillager’s Pub, 8551 Greenwood Ave North (Greenwood)

Naked City Brewery – 8564 Greenwood Ave North (Greenwood)

Winning an award at GABF is a huge honor as the competition is really fierce.  Winners in different categories will be announced this Saturday around 1pm, and I’ll post our Washington winners right here on   In them meantime, if you visit any of these fine establishments in the next few days wish them luck!
