Saturday, July 25th – Beer and Burger Battle
Usually scheduled during Seattle Beer Week, we decided to switch things up this year and host this event in July, as it’s a crowd favorite!
For those of you unfamiliar with the event the formula is simple. We invite 5 breweries to attend, and ask that each craft a special burger to be paired with 1 of the 4-5 beers they send us. Two of those beers should be less widely distributed (somewhat rare).
We have invited:
Beardslee Brewing – New brewery in Bothell, Drew Cluley who previously worked at the Big Time and won the last two years with them, moved on to this new brewery.
Big Time Brewing – Now with a new head brewer, and owner. The brewery has won the competition the last two years. Now they have some big shoes to fill if they are to win for a third year in a row.
Reuben’s Brews – First time at the competition—Head Brewer Adam Robbings and company are excited to be part of this. I have heard that they are vegetarian—that would be a first.
Breakside – Ben Edmunds and his Portland crew have been coming up with some very creative beers, and food to go along with it.
Ballast Point – These guys have been putting Grapefruit and other spices etc in their beers for awhile now, we are looking forward to what they come up with for this event.
