Brouwer’s Café Celebrates its 13th Anniversary and Orval Day
They say the number 13 is unlucky, but after that many years in Seattle, we’d say we are truly lucky to have found such a wonderful home. We always like to blow it out for our anniversaries and this year will certainly be no exception.
Please join us in celebrating another year in this terrific city. We’ll have two outstanding anniversary beers brewed by our friends at North Fork in Deming, WA and Structures in Bellingham. In addition to those two offerings, we’ll de diving deep into the cellar to bring out anniversary beers of years past and some other tasty brews as well.
To top it all off, it’s also National Orval Day! One of our very favorite Trappist brews is being celebrated once again and we couldn’t be happier to share the day with them. We’ll have Orval both fresh and aged for your enjoyment.
It promises to be a memorable day, so please come out to celebrate and cheers what will be a great year ahead.
16th Annual HardLiver Barleywine Festival
Out of the bleakness of the Seattle Winter comes a shining beacon of hope. After conditioning (or pickling) your bodies during the holiday season, it’s time to do some real heavy lifting and again show your body whose boss. That’s right! Hard Liver is upon us once more.
Now in its 16th year, we’ll be showcasing the best the world in barleywine has to offer. Old stalwarts of the style will mix it up with recent releases in a no-holds-barred event where the winner is surely to be you.
We will be tapping at least 50 barleywines that’ll make you taste buds tingle and your body mourn what could’ve been had there not been such a thing as barleywine.
Join us the last weekend in February for this time-honored tradition where we will once again find out, “How hard is your liver?!”
If Benjamin Franklin was right and beer is proof that god loves us and wants us to be happy (ok, maybe it was about wine), then whiskey could be of someone else’s grand design.
This theory was put to the test when Four Roses Distillery made for us a truly devilish nectar that we’ve since called Demon Sweat. Spicy and hot like the fires of inferno, it certainly is (122.2) proof
Having run its course here at Brouwer’s it’s now time to cleanse ourselves. We’ve asked the High Clerics of Woodinville to lay their hands and provide unto us a purging salve so that we may be saved once again. They have obliged and given us Holy Water, a 132.16 proof single barrel from deep within their catacombs.
Join us on February 21st for the release of our new single barrel whiskey. We’ll have a special flight of both Four Roses Demon Sweat and Woodinville Holy Water. This will be the last opportunity to have Demon Sweat at Brouwer’s and flights are limited. We hope to see you all out that evening.
