Kulture Freaks happens tonight at Brouwer’s


Big old party at Brouwer’s: Kulture Freaks, featuring carnival attractions, burlesque performers, and a whole lot of beer starts at 9pm and sounds like a wild ride. If you’re just doing one SBW event this year, this might be the one.

Fair warning: Shultzy’s promises to be a total sausage fest tonight. (Sorry, I just can’t not make the sausage fest joke.) Staffers from Chuckanut in Bellingham will be on hand to talk about the brewery’s lagers—the restaurant is pairing five of those with five different sausages.

The Beer Junction is hosting a tasting of Iron Horse Brewery beers. That doesn’t sound like a big deal but I would like to take this occasion to steer you towards the Ellensburg-based brewery’s IPA. It’s milder than a lot of our state-brewed IPAs, an excellent gateway beer for reluctant hopheads.

Looking towards the weekend: Nosh Pit has posted a guide to the good SBW beer-pairing dinners, you’ll want to reserve today if you’re interested in attending one of them. The Volunteer Park Café and Stone Brewing feast sounds like an amazing, possibly gout-inducing indulge-o-rama. (Bone-marrow mashed potatoes? Hard core.)

On Saturday, there are a bunch of tasty-looking brunches, and that’s the day that the Tour de Pints happens. Look to SBW’s website for a complete list of events. I’d also refer you to SBW coverage on Seattle Beer News.

Good stuff.
