Last night as part of Seattle Beer Week, I went to the special Brewer’s Dinner at Naked City Taphouse in Greenwood. Eight fabulous courses paired with beer included fried chicken, buffalo carpaccio, smoked trout, rabbit rillet and lamb shank. The great news is that Naked City is going to put on dinners just like last night’s once every quarter, so if you missed it you can come again next time.
In the meantime, Seattle Beer Week is in full swing, and doesn’t take a break just because we have weekday jobs. So here’s my picks for this week’s north Seattle Beer Week:
- On Tuesday (5/15), head to Brouwer’s Cafe in Fremont for the Beer and Burger Battle. It runs from 5pm to 11pm and features beer and burgers from reigning champs Fremont Brewing, along with New Belgium, 21st Amendment, Black Raven, and Hair of the Dog.
- On Wednesday (5/16) make your way to Ballard for Snipes Mountain Sour Night at The Noble Fir. Event runs from 4pm to 8pm. Not a sour fan? If IPA’s are more your thing, go to Big Time Brewery in the U-District for their IPA Cask Fest – pouring all day.
- On Thursday, please please PLEASE don’t miss Latona Pub’s annual “Wall of Casks.” They physically build up a wall/pyramid of great cask beers for a fun night, starting at 6pm in east Green Lake.
Stay safe out there everyone, don’t drink and drive, and enjoy the mid-week festivities!
