And so we’ve come to the middle.
It’s day five of Seattle Beer Week, and the events continue to flow forward like a frothy, turbulent river current. Break out your metaphorical canoes and ride that rapid, people. Beer week comes but once a year.
Here’s what looks good for Monday, May 23.
Cider fans: Tonight Quinn’s is hosting an event in your honor. Pay $25 at the door to receive six different cider samplings paired with cheeses. This goes from 6 to 9pm—I suggest you call to see if there is still space. I’d do it for you right now but Quinn’s isn’t open yet.
Brouwer’s Cafe in Fremont has been touting the fact that tonight it will tap rare kegs from Evil Twin Brewing in Denmark.
If Beer Week, for you, is about sampling as many state-made brews as possible, head to Beveridge Place Pub in West Seattle. It has 24 Washington beers on tap, and is charging just $3 a pint.
Also, Tomme Arthur from Southern California’s Port Brewing Company will be at Super Deli Mart at 1pm. (At 7pm he heads to Hopvine on Capitol Hill. Don’t let any Cascadia brewers catch you chilling with one of the San Diego dudes.)
A trio of side notes:
1. Don’t forget we’ve got a guide to SBW beer week dinners over on Nosh.
2. All week The Dray on Phinney Ridge is dusting off bottles stored in its cellar and serving them up to you, fair customer. This is to honor its third birthday.
