Wednesday, October 18th @6pm – An Evening with Structures Brewing from Bellingham.

Structures is one of Bellingham’s newest breweries, and we’ve been big fans since they opened, heading there many a days after riding mountain bikes, or when we just need to get away from the big City!

This night has been a while in the planning, so we are super excited to finally be celebrating Structure’s awesome libations, joined by James and Max.

We will be tapping 4-6 beers, spanning the spectrum of their offerings. Look for there to be some rare beers for the Seattle Market, from IPA to Sour.

Wednesday, October 11th @ 6pm — A Evening with Breakside Brewery featuring Brewer Jacob Leonard

When we stopped by Breakside Brewery in Portland a few months ago Jacob graciously showed us around and sampled us on some of their fine barrels and fresh IPAs. We decided then and there to host him for a Brewer’s Night, and we welcome you to join us!

“I first met Jacob Leonard while he was working at Walking Man Brewing in Stevenson, WA, which seems like a lifetime ago and may have been in the infancy of Brouwer’s Café. At the time, I was working for Big Time Brewery in the U-District. Fast forward and Jacob is working at Breakside Brewery, making awesome beers, and is still one of the nicest guys I’ve ever met.” – Nat

Thursday, September 21st @ 6pm A night of sours and stunt tacos with New Belgium Brewing.

New Belgium has been one of our favorite breweries for a long time.  They make great beer, and their business philosophy is spot on, they are employee owned after all.  They have an amazing sour and wood aged program that they have invested time and energy over many years.  Have you heard of their “Lost in the woods” event?  They have some new and limited beers coming out of “the forest”, and we are happy to be pouring some of these new beers.  We are hoping that all works out and these beers are available in time for our event.  We will also be pouring some beers that we have kept in our cellar for a bit.

We are hoping to be pouring:

Trans Atlantic Kriek 17

Vintage La Folie (year tbd)

Tart Lychee

Sour Saison

Bottle pours of Vintage La Folie ’09

Felix aged in Apple Whiskey

After opening remarks from the YOOTT staff of knuckleheads (that includes me) we will introduce the panel and at that point Dave, Brad, and Adam will join us on the stage.
The point of this and all YOOTT shows is to have fun. FUN! We will however be tackling some serious, and I dare say ‘political’ issues in our conversation which is a first for YOOTT. I will be soliciting questions from the audience at times. My main goals will be to drink The Beer In Front Of Me and having fun. I cannot imagine failing these goals given the characters and experience that will be together on the dais.

Tuesday, July 25th Fort George/Finnriver Shady Grove Release Party @ 6pm

We are pleased to host two of our favorite beverage producers on one night.  Fort George Brewing and Finnriver Farm/Cidery have gotten together to produce what we are sure will be an awesome blend that they have named Shady Grove here is the description from the brewery:

TART, FRUITY, UNION

A blend of tart black cherry cider from Finnriver Cidery and deep red sour saison from Fort George Brewery, aged among the grove of barrels in the Lovell Showroom in Astoria. French oak wine barrels shade the acidity that blooms with the additions of brettanomyces and lactobacillus, producing a complex bouquet of fruity esters and spice.

We will also have a couple other options on draft from each producer that evening. We look forward to seeing you.
