Washington Cask Beer Festival
Seattle Center’s exhibition hall will have cask-conditioned beers from over 40 Washington breweries for this year’s cask beer festival. The rare, unfiltered, and unpasteurized cask ales can be sampled during two separate sessions on Saturday: the first runs noon to 4pm, then a second session from 6 to 10pm. Advance tickets are $40, while tickets at the door are $45, and they include 25 beer samples plus a commemorative glass that can later serve as storage for loose change and dirty rubber bands.
Rodeo Donut Popup at Cupcake Royale
Conceived in the fires of Mordor—er, brilliant minds—of some doughnut-hungry Cupcake Royale bakers, this daily popup debuts its freshly fried goods this Saturday, March 28. The Cupcake Royale in Ballard will open at 7am every morning to dispense six rotating flavors of fluffy brioche dough–based doughnuts until they’re gone. They'll likely sell out by noon. Not your typical rundown of doughnut offerings, think whiskey maple bacon, orange blossom honeysuckle, and salted pistachio among many more inventive flavors and glazes. Donuts range from $2.50 to $3 each, and this Saturday buy a doughnut and get a free 12-ounce Stumptown drip coffee.
Brouwer’s Cafe Celebrates a Decade of Existence
All weekend long the Fremont beer destination is toasting to its 10th anniversary. Each year Brouwer’s Cafe releases a special anniversary ale, but this time there will be two celebratory brews: an imperial IPA inconspicuously named Gobsmacked from Reuben’s Brews and a draft-only sour beer courtesy of New Belgium Brewing. Past anniversary ales will also be unearthed from the cellar among several other birthday-worthy beers; the party kicks off at 11am.
MONDAY, MARCH 30
Eat Food Inspired by the Lewis and Clark Expedition
Almost a history lesson by way of food, chef Paul Stanley has designed this decidedly American and distinctly Pacific Northwestern popup at the soon-to-be-shuttered Bloom in Ballard. Inspired by the journal entries as well as the plant and animal life that Lewis and Clark encountered during their travels, the dinner will begin with Taylor Shellfish oysters and will later include interesting proteins like bison croquettes and seared venison loin. The dinner is just $50 per person for six courses of locally sourced and sustainable ingredients.
