California

Aug 16: Bay Area Brewfest, Fort Mason, 2-5pm (hour earlier for VIP ticket holders)

Whaaaaa?? It's our first beer fest in California, and Adam is going to put on his shiniest petticoat to meet and greet the locals in the Bay Area. If you haven't been able to find Manny's or Lucille on tap down there yet, here is a sure bet, served up by our very own Adam (*sniff* miss you buddy!). Not sure about the dress code? The video of last year's event has smiling folks in Hawai'ian shirts, horse head masks, capes, cowboy gear, bathing suits and popular video game character costumes. Just remember, whether you pick the lion or witch from your wardrobe, you're never fully dressed without a smile. However, pants are always a solid choice.

Aug 07: Georgetown Brewer's Night, Copper Door, Tacoma, 6-8pm

Head for the shiny shiny copper door at Tac-town's newest beer destination, The Copper Door, and spend a couple hours with Garrett while you drink a vast array of Gtown beers on tap. Find something you like? Lucky for you, The C.D. is a bottle shop as well as a bar, so you can take it home in a growler! Very convenient!

Aug 09: Westport Beer Fest, VFW Post 3057, Westport, 1-8pm

Supporting the VFW and Wounded Warriors Project, this fest promises beer, food, music and dancing PLUS a "best dressed dog contest". While you must be 21 to enter, their website assures us that dogs will not be carded (tho the ones over 3 years old, we're guessing, will be allowed to drink beer). After 8, the music and dancing continues inside until midnight so you can keep working on your night moves.

Aug 09: Georgetown Trailer Park Drag Strip, 5-10pm

Sylvia O'Stayformore is bringing some of her friends down to invade Gtown's very own Trailer Park Mall, and these fast ladies will be showing off some of their most cunning stunts. This will be an Art Attack night full of music and mayhem. Music by the Moonspinners, Less Than Equals and DJ Brownstone's Soul Attack. Let's get ready to rumble strip!

Aug 09: Four Corners Brewfest, Shoreline, 3-7pm

Benefitting Shoreline Music4Life, your ticket to this fest gets you beer from 20 different breweries, food, and the musical stylings of The Pink Torpedoes, which may or may not be a Spinal Tap tribute band, which may or may not be very meta. A tribute band for a fake band? That sound you just heard? Those are my brain cells popping. To eleven.

Aug 12: Georgetown Brewer's Night, Black Zia Cantina, 7-9pm

Burien's only New Mexican Punk bar. Or is that a Punk New Mexican bar? Hmmm, good question.... They claim to have some of the best salsa in Burien, and while that's a pretty bold statement to make, they definitely have the skills to back it up. Garrett will help you pair up some beers with your green chile snacks, or just help you pick some beers.

Aug 14: Naches Tavern Brewer's Night, Enumclaw, 6pm?

This is a rescheduled event from April (shout out to Tiffany W. and crew!) and the details are still a wee bit up in the air, but Garrett says "Naches is happening" and I have a deadline, so let's go for it! Where White River and Greenwater River meet, Naches Tavern sits betwixt the two, like a little oasis for folks going to or coming off the mountain. Garrett will be Gtown's ambassador for the evening, chatting with locals and tourists alike, and trying to see how many different words he can come up with for "snow".

Aug 15: Blues & Brews, Maple Valley Community Center, 7-10pm

If you are in the 'hood, make sure to swing by for this Friday night brewfest supporting services and activities for residents in the community. It's one of the smaller local brewfests, but sometimes less is more, and when you are drinking beer for a cause, more is always more better.

Aug 20: Bob's Brown Ale Night, Brown Lantern, Anacortes, 6-8pm

The folks at BL have been annual supporters of our efforts to raise funds for Ronald McDonald House Charities with our Bob's Brown Ale, and this year is no different. Rumors of past years' "antics" have included Flaming Manny's and keg stands, but these are just rumors and are unsubstantiated, I'll have you know. However, a heavy Gtown contingent usually drives up for this event, so really anything can happen. You might want to bring a passport and toothbrush, just in case.

Aug 21: Georgetown Night, Train Wreck, 6-8pm

When looking up some info for this event, I literally almost stopped webtoobing after I saw "smoked brisket fritters" on their menu. That's "literally almost", so I didn't actually stop, (again, deadlines) but I did have to reapply my Cheetos™ flavored lip balm more than once. Jrob will be hosting this promo night at Burlington's fave bar with some drink specials and swag. And I hear Thursdays are for karaoke - maybe you can get Jrob to team up with you on the Dolly Parton and Sylvester Stallone classic duet "Sweet Lovin' Friends".

Aug 21: Georgetown hosted Trivia, O'Blarney's, O'lympia, 8pm

Match wits with your fellow neighbors, and Garrett, during O'Blarney's Trivia Night. That Garrett is a pretty smart cookie, DESPITE the fact he's never seen the American classic film Airplane! and is completely incapable of quoting anything from that movie (looks like I picked the wrong week to quit taking amphetamines? Jim never vomits at home? Joey, have you ever been in a Turkish prison? And Leon is getting laaaaaaaager? COME ON GARRETT!) Gtown beers on tap, probably on special as well, and delicious trivial pursuits.

Aug 23: Blues & Brews, Des Moines, 12-8pm

You are invited to the 5th Annual Poverty Bay Blues & Brews Fest. Sip on beers from over 25 different breweries while you enjoy some great Blues tunes at Des Moines Beach Park. They'll be grilling up some brats and B&E Meat's famous tri tip, so bring a low lawn chair or a blanket and stretch out and relax.

Aug 25: Georgetown Night, Sunset Alehouse, 5:30-8pm

From the owners of JaK's Grill, the Sunset is their more casual restaurant, but the same quality still applies. Jrob will be host with the most, raffling off some Gtown swag while you get a cool buck off Gtown drafts. That's right, a cool buck. Marzano - would that be the cool, cooler, coolest, or "desert only" setting?

Aug 28: Bob's Bowl-A-Rama at West Seattle Bowl, 7-10pm

It's only a month away, and the lanes are already starting to fill up. This is our final Bob's blowout of the year, so it's the last chance to get a pint of Bob's before it is gone, baby, gone until May 14th, 2015. Even if you don't bowl, just hanging out, buying a few raffle tickets and enjoying a pint of Bob's helps raise much needed funds to house children and families during treatment at Seattle Children's. But you should get a lane and bowl, because if you are as bad a bowler as I am, you'll repeatedly get to watch the super sweet video of the cat sliding into bowling pins when you get an open frame.

Aug 28: Georgetown Brewing Night, Skep and Skein, Olympia, 6pm

This has been rescheduled. Look for it in the first half of October.

Aug 06: Gtown Beer Tasting, Mac's Place, Silverton, 6-8pm

What came first, the name Mac's or their mac n' cheese? One of many questions that can be answered during Sean's tour of duty this Wednesday night. He'll be there pouring samples of Gtown beers, talking about all things Georgetown Brewing and/or cheese related while Gtown beers will be available on tap for the night.

Aug 07: Georgetown Night, Walt's Pourhouse, Coos Bay, 7-9pm

It's our Coos Bay home away from home.... Sean will be making the trip to the coast to have some fun with the folks at Walt's. Some L.A. Woman Crystal Kölsch will be on tap alongside other Gtown brews, there will be some pint specials on said brews, and Sean will be in the corner raffling off some swag. All in all, it's one of the better ways for you to spend your Thursday night.

Aug 13: Beer Wars IPA Fest: Battle of the Beer Cities, 10 Barrel Brewing, Bend 5-10pm

It's time for the 2nd Annual Beer Wars IPA Fest - 32 breweries from Central Oregon, the rest of Oregon, Washington and California will battle it out for IPA domination in a BLIND tasting battle of the beers to see who really makes the best IPA in the West. This could be very interesting - how well do you know your favorite hometown brew? Allegiance to City and State could be tested when you let your palate be the decider. I predict a lot of pearl clutching. Blind tasting 5-7pm, results and live music 7-10pm. We hear the winner gets an extra hour in the ball pit.

Aug 14-16: Bend Brewfest, Les Schwab Amphitheater, Bend OR, 12-11pm

Has it already been a full year since we crossed paths with our spirit animals Sprinkles and ChilliDog? It must be, because Bend Brewfest is back! Grab a snack of some Dump City Dumplings and get ready for over 60 breweries and over 120 beers on tap. The event is free - you only pay for the tokens to taste - so you can pace yourself over all 3 days if you like. Plus, Bend Brewfest has one of the best websites for a festival I've seen - if you want to estimate how many of those 120+ beers you might want to taste, you can search for beers being served by style, color, ABV and IBU. So if you wanted a Pilsner with an SRM of 3-4, less than 5% ABV and around 25 IBUs you know what you'd get? A Roger's Pilsner, that's what.
