Month of August

Sportys Featured Brewery of the Month, PLUS Bacon and Brew July 07
Nothing ruins a pleasant afternoon in the garden picking peas than accidentally snipping off the tip of your finger with a pair of garden shears (it happens). And while nothing can quite quell the pain of a lost afternoon of pea picking, or a lost fingertip, beer and bacon do a pretty good job of making the hurt go away. Gtown is the featured brewery of the month, but on Monday July 7, you can start off your week right with Jrob, some beer specials, and the healing power of free bacon. Gives "bacon wrap" a whole new meaning. Now I'm thinking about bacon rings - like, wearable bacon. Can someone get on that?

Jul 02: Georgetown Night, Bison Creek Pizza, Burien, 6-9pm

Help commemorate the day a UFO crashed in the 1947 Roswell UFO Incident - or whatever other reason you might have to celebrate on the 2nd - by heading over to Bison Creek for some close encounters of the beer kind. Garrett will be hosting, he'll bring some swag for raffling off, and there should be at least 5 Gtown beers on tap. How will you know for sure if you don't go? The truth is out there....

Jul 03: L.A. Woman Crystal Kolsch Release, Dante's, 8pm

Chances are you'll have Friday the 4th off, so you have no excuse not to go out Thursday night for a lil' fun. While our L.A. Woman Crystal Kolsch has been in growlers at the brewery for a few weeks, we've brewed up another big batch to send out to bars and restaurants around town - and East and South and Oregon - so it's kind of like a release party. Marzano will be bringing some swag to raffle off, and maybe cut a rug while the DJ does his thing.

Jul 04: Little Water Cantina

What's your plan for Independence Day, maybe a little firework watching? Situated on Lake Union, LWC is one of the best places in Seattle to watch the show. Your unobstructed view of the rockets' red glare should pair nicely with Georgetown beer specials on the patio.

Jul 07-10: Cask Nights at Safeco Field, Mariners vs. Twins

We'll be bringing a cask of beer for each of the games during this 4 day homestand against the Twins. Remember to get there early, because when the casks are gone, they're gone....

Jul 07: Bacon and Brew, Sporty's, 6-8pm

see above (if you liked it you should have put a bacon ring on it...)

Jul 10: Bob's BBQ, Cypress Lounge & Wine Bar, Westin Bellevue, 4pm

Join us on the patio for some beer, bbq and sunshine and help raise money while you do it. There are only a few kegs of Bob's left for the rest of the year, so this is one of the last events until May 2015. Reps from Ronald McDonald House and Georgetown will be there (rumor has it Roger will be making an appearance), plus, it starts at 4pm so you can leave work early and avoid the rush hour traffic.

Jul 10: Georgetown Night, Ringers, 6-8pm

Just a casual Thursday night in Mountlake Tear-It-Up with Jrob at Ringers for some drink specials and most likely some casual World Cup conversation. You can get $3 Gtown pints or $6 34oz mugs, which, if my maths are correct, is a 2 oz bonus. Top it off with some mini corndogs and a possible heated dart competition for swag and you've got a great night. Hmm, heated dart competition. That, in retrospect, does not sound safe. Trust us, it's safe.

Jul 11-13: West Seattle Summerfest, West Seattle Junction, 10am-8pm Fri+Sat, 11am-8pm Sun

Summertime, summertime, sum sum summertime! It's West Seattle's big summer party when the Junction closes to traffic for a big ol' block party. Fun, games, 2 music stages, food and beer gardens right in the center of town. West Seattlites in-the-know head over Thursday night before the festivities, when the roads are blocked off but before the vendors set up - there isn't much going on just yet, kids skateboarding down the middle of the road and maybe some restaurants with outdoor seating - but it's a nice little calm before the storm for the locals and a chance to relax before the weekend gets crazy.

Jul 12: Tacoma Pride Festival Block Party at The Mix, 5-10pm

If you didn't get enough fun at the Pride Fest in Seattle, or you just feel like letting your freak flag fly, head down to Tacoma to help our brothers and sisters from the South celebrate. The Mix hosts the official Pride Block Party with food, drinks and music all day long. There might not be a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, but I guarantee there is beer.

Jul 12: Bremerton Summer Brewfest, downtown Bremerton, noon-6:30pm

Why drive when you can float? Just a quick 5 minute walk from the ferry dock will put you at the festival entrance, but you should definitely take some time to walk around downtown and maybe grab a little bite beforehand to cushion the onslaught of beer sampling. Don't dilly dally too much downtown though, this festival has been known to run out before the end....

Jul 12-13: Ballard Sea Food Fest, heart of downtown Ballard, starts at 11am both days

It's the 40th year of this Ballard institution where they serve not just pounds and pounds and pounds of seafood, but around one ton of salmon. ONE TON. That's a lot of kilos. And pounds. And what do you wash down all that fish with? Beer of course! The beer garden was such an overwhelming success last year, they realized they were "going to need a bigger boat", so they've made the beer garden bigger and better. Scandinavians really know how to throw a party, so don't miss it.

Jul 19: Phinney Neighborhood Association Summer Beer Taste, 4-7pm

He picks up a beer/ and he throws it back down/ As he wades through the people toward the center of town/ Oh no, they say he's got to go - go to Beerzilla! Always a great neighborhood event that's not just for the neighbors. This year's theme is, you guessed it, Beerzilla. Whether that means big ABV and IBU beers, or just mayhem inducing libations, we're not sure, but one thing is for sure, we never miss this beer fest.

Jul 23: Bellingham Bay BREWers Cruise, 6pm

Avast ye scurvy dogs, it's time once again for us to board the Victoria Star for a two hour tour. Enjoy samples of beer from us, Boundary Bay and Anacortes Brewery plus bites and wings for your snacking pleasure. It's not a theme cruise, tho Jrob and Garrett's piratey outfits from last year might suggest otherwise. Perhaps you can branch out of the pirate theme, made so popular by Mr. Depp. Shelly Winters from The Poseidon Adventure? Or Kevin Costner from Waterworld? Errol Flynn and Maureen O'Hara from Against All Flags? A crab monster from Attack Of the Crab Monsters? Anyone from The Love Boat? Who needs an eye patch - the possibilities arrrrrrgh endless.

Jul 24: Bob's Firkin, Beveridge Place Pub, 7pm

While kegging Bob's LAST year, Tom diverted a firkin's worth of the brown brew into a cask. Since then, it's been hanging around the brewery for over a year, getting more tasty as it bides its time, until *WHACK!* it gets tapped with a quick knock of a mallet from Gary's sure hands at the BPP. Swing by early before the Gtown employees drink it all. No, for serious, because they will.

Jul 25: Red White & Brew, Fremont Foundry, 6-9pm

When people talk about the value of something, a lot of the times that includes what kind of view that something has. Lucky for us in Seattle, views are everywhere and you don't have to travel far to find one. Mt. Rainer? There you are. Elliott Bay, I see you. Olympics and/or Cascades, hello ladies. So while we aren't wanting for views, what we might need is new perspective. Get a new perspective of your city from the rooftop of the recently opened Fremont Foundry. Enjoy brews, booze and bites while you enjoy everything Seattle in the Summer has to offer. And then remember this moment mid February when you can't see any views because it's dark at 4pm.

Jul 27: Brewers By The Bay, Bellingham

Hosted by the local Rotary International chapter, this local B-ham brewfest helps raise money for local charities like NW Youth Services, Boys & Girls Club, Whatcom Hospice House and more. There's food, music and of course lots of tasty beer. Could there be a more pleasant way to end the weekend....

Jul 28: Prima Bistro Beer Dinner, Langley, 5:30pm

It's the 5th year for our annual Beer Dinner at Prima Bistro. Jrob is hoofing over 5 kegs of something, and the chefs at Prima Bistro will work their magical magic on 5 courses to match. 5th year, 5 courses, 5 beers - 5 is the magic number.


Jul 03: Georgetown Brewing Night, Hot Mama's Wings, Eugene, 5:30-8:30 pm

We'll have four Gtown beers on draft at Eugene's only sustainable wing joint. Not only sustainable, but they have 16 different wing sauces to choose from. How do you pick from 16 different sauces? Pair 'em with beer! If I had to pair up beers and sauce, I'd go Chipoltle Bourbon/Gtown Porter, Raspberry Habañero/Manny's, Kamikaze/Roger's and Thai Peanut/Lucille. If you were asking. But you weren't. Sean will be hosting, raffling off swag and fighting you for the last bacon wrapped jalapeño popper.

Jul 18: Beer Garden Tasting, Growlers Hawthorne, Portland, 5-9pm

Sure, some Friday nights just beg for a can of Pecan Pie Artificially Flavored Pringles and a VHS copy of CHUD II: Bud the CHUD. But in the summer, you really need to get outside. Growlers Hawthorne is hosting a beer garden Friday night in their parking lot, complete and replete with beer and music, a perfect reason to get out of the house. We will be there pouring tastes of our beers, but you'll be able to get them on draft in both growlers and pints. In the immortal words of Cynthia Gibb, "Here's to a hot Friday night!"

Jul 19-20: Oregon Lagerfest, White Owl Social Club, Portland, 2-10 pm both days

It's that time when the warm weather brings out the lager lover in all of us. 50+ breweries at the White Owl Social Club patio are bringing their finest lager. That's right FIVE- OH. The PacNW isn't just IPA country and the participation in this event proves it (though I suspect there will be some pretty hoppy lagers). If you have any friends that haven't jumped on the craft beer wagon yet because they don't like "bitter" beers, or are frightened of flavor, this might be a good way to nudge them into drinking better beer. Lager: it's the gateway beer. We'll be there pouring our Roger's Pilsner. Proceeds go towards Pixie Project and Xray.FM.

Jul 22: Tuesday Market, Primrose and Tumbleweeds, Hillsboro, 5-8pm

The Hillsboro Tuesday Marketplace is a weekly summer outdoor festival and farmers' market in Historic Downtown Hillsboro. After you pick up your fresh produce and a bag of summer fruit, take a stroll over to Primrose and Tumbleweeds where they will have Gtown beers available on draft. Sean will also be there giving out samples and showing off his new henna tattoos.

Jul 23: Beer Dinner, Beachcombers Pub, Florence, 6pm

Manny and Roger are roadtripping to the coast to meet up with Sean and host this fantastic 6 course dinner. We'll be bringing Roger's Pilsner, L.A. Woman Crystal Kolsch, Manny's, Gtown Porter, Lucille , and Lisa's Chocolate Stout on nitro. The Beachcomber has a good rep for these dinners, so whatever they choose to pair up with the beers is sure to be delicious.

Jul 29: Georgetown Brewing Night, Westside Taphouse, Salem, 6-8 pm

Just a casual Tuesday night with samplin', swaggin', and Seanin'. You could also do some drinkin' and hangin' and chattin'. Please no cussin', fussin' or trippin' on tussin'.
