Come raise a glass and celebrate the 11th Anniversary of Anacortes Bier on the Pier with breweries, cideries, food trucks, live music, and beautiful views of Guemes Island. The Samish language name for the island is Qweng7qwengila7, which means "many dogs", referring to Salish Wool Dogs. These dogs were kept away from other dogs and wolves to keep them from interbreeding. You see, their thick wooly hair was prized for making Salish blankets. Maybe next time Fido gives you grief about dinner being 30 seconds late you can be like "bro, where's my wool?"
We’ll be hosting our friends at LRP for a fun social hour, or two. Enjoy beers, (maybe some boardgames?!) and learn about their low to no cost legal advocacy work for Black gender diverse people.
Tuesday, October 11
Union Tavern-Local 902, Anacortes, 6-8pm
Join Andrew for a Tuesday Brewer’s Night when he pops by with some darn tasty beers (Bodhizilla DIPA and Tomtoberfest) and swag to raffle off. When I asked him for interesting details, he said "it's just a regular brewer's night, but remember I texted you last time I was there - that's the place with the pickled eggs and you love pickled eggs, so maybe you could talk about that." And I said "I love pickled eggs!" And he said "I know! That's why I mentioned it!". For as much crap I give Andrew, he always does me a solid.
Help Bottles celebrate 4 years with a full day of fun, including fresh hop beers, food trucks, patio games, raffles and more! Maybe Joe will bring his banjo and lead everyone in a rousing rendition of 99 Bottles Of Beer on the Wall. Or not.
Start sketching out some ideas now - it's time for the 5th Annual Pumpkin Carving contest at Brigid's Bottleshop! Andrew is bringing a festive keg of Tomtoberfest to enjoy as well as some swag for winners! And, before you ask your fellow carvers if you can have all their pumpkin seeds for roasting later, take a beat because honestly, you'll eat maybe a handful before you get tired of shelling them. Kind of like candy corn - good idea in theory, terrible in practice (get some Brach's Mellowcreme Pumpkins instead).
Put on your sexy hot dog costume (or, you know, whatever), grab your sexy hot dog friends (or, you know, whomever) and crawl your way through Georgetown’s neighborhood breweries. Collect stamps at Jellyfish, Lowercase, Machine House, Great Notion, Full Throttle and us, and be entered to win a swag bag. I’ll be honest, we’re still working on the details, but we’ll figure it out. You only have to do the easy part - drinking beer!

It's a special weekend full of yard games, live music and all the Gtown beer Joe can get his hands on. Details? Scarce, but isn't that part of the fun?!
The Wooden Nickel 931 Bryden Ave, Lewiston, ID, 4-9pm
Whether you call it Parlor Quoits or Faba Baga (lol no one calls it those things, what is this, 1883?) you can try your hand at becoming the Cornholio Victorious at the Wooden Nickel's end of the season Cornhole Tournament. And while you toss the bags, enjoy Gtown beers and get a chance to win some Gtown swag!
