Non-Motorized Beer Delivery returns to Latona Pub for Earth Week

Of all the events Latona Pub in Green Lake puts on for us throughout the year, the Earth Week festivities have to be my favorite.   For one week every year, all the beer that comes to Latona Pub will come by some means other than motorized transportation.  This means kegs can be walked (with a hand truck), delivered by bicycle, or even come by rowboat (any other ideas? Let them know!).

Everything kicks off tomorrow – Sunday, April 15th – with the beginning of the keg deliveries.  Kegs come from as close as our local north Seattle breweries like Big Time, Naked City, and Northgate Ram, to as far away as Black Raven Brewing (Redmond -16.6 miles away).

In addition to saving the planet by saving fuel and decreasing their carbon footprint, Latona Pub also hosts a few events during the week.  For Earth Week 2012, there is a “Local Food Awareness” night on Thursday, April 19th beginning at 7pm.  A portion of proceeds that night will go towards Chef’s Collaborative.

On Saturday, April 21st, bring your hazardous garbage – computers, electronics, batteries and fluorescent light bulbs – to Latona for a day of free disposal, from noon until 4pm.

Finally, on Sunday April 22nd finish the week with the Feet First benefit starting at 2 pm, with a special keg from Two Beers Brewing – the “Limited Edition Hand Truckin’ Wheat Ale.”  This event requires a pre-sale ticket which you can buy online for $20 at Feetfirst.org.

As a sign at one of my local faves Naked City says, “Save the earth – it’s the only planet with BEER!”

  1. The Black Raven hike actually registers around 22 miles since we can’t walk over the 520 bridge. We’ll be taking the Sammamish River Trail to the Burke-Gilman, then over to Latona Pub (with several stops for beer, of course.

    Look for two weirdos and a cute shiba inu pushing a keg strapped into a wheelchair. We won’t be hard to spot.
