Thursday, December 20th @6pm, Firestone Walker Ugly Sweater Party

U-G-L-Y your sweater ain’t got no alibi, it’s ugly. Well, at least you hope so. It’s the most magical time of year – where you dust off the vintage, grandma-knit hand-me-down or scour the internet for the perfect top that will make people shake their heads in disgust. It’s Ugly Sweater time! Now in its 8th year!

As is tradition, the lovely people of Firestone Walker are helping us put on one of our favorite events of the year. We’ll have fun holiday games, some crafting, an “Ugliest Sweater” contest, and a whole bunch of goodies from the cellar on draft. There might even be a few presents to give out to the people donning their finest yule-time apparel. We’re usually one of the first ugly sweater events of the year, so you can come out and use the night to beta-test that new purchase while sipping on some not-so-ugly brews.

We’ll kick off the evening around 6 pm, with the sweater contest happening around 9 pm. Please join us once again for this really fun evening of ugly!

Thursday, December 13th @ 6pm, Floodland Brewing presents It’s a King Diamond Xmas

 

Christmas time is here again

Adam needs a helping hand

We cannot find his brewing sheet

To brew his laying for the night

So all the waiting beer on lees

Gonna hear Big Tony sing

 

There’s no lambics, not this Christmas

There’s no lambics

Floodland and Brouwers, drinking sours

They don’t give a damn

 

December 13th is here again

Aaron needs a helping hand

It’s getting very, very late

He put six beers in Golden Gates

And Mike Lane is still in bed

I wonder which burrito he’s gonna eat

 

There’s no lambics, not this Christmas

There’s no lambics

Floodland and Brouwers, all done sours

We don’t give a damn

 

There’s no lambics, not this Christmas

There’s no lambics

Floodland and Brouwers, found more sours

We don’t give a damn

We’re dreaming of a tart, Sabbath

 

 

December 13th at 6 p.m.:

 

Floodland + Brouwer’s + King Diamond

 

Be there, or we’ll call Abigail.

 

Thursday, December 6-Sunday, December 9th, Bigwood Fest, Our celebration of all beers wood aged

 

Out of the night the covers me,

Charred as the barrel from head to head,

I thank whatever brewers may be,

For my barrel-aged spread.

 

It matters not how high the abv,

How charged with punishment the hangover,

I am the master of my belly,

I am the captain of my blur.

 

What time is it again? You guessed it – Big Wood time; our time to celebrate all beers (and ciders) barrel-aged. Not barrel-aged? Not interested. That’s right, 50+ taps of beers that have been aged in barrels. Oh, you threw some beechwood staves into your tanks? Get out here with that nonsense. We are talking real time, in real barrels. This is one of the events we put on that certainly isn’t to be missed.

 

On December 6th – 9th, we will once again dive deep into the bowels of the cellar and pull all sorts of vintage goods for your palate from sour to sweet and everything in between. Join us that weekend for one of the biggest barrel-aged beer festivals in the city. Big Wood is good.

Tuesday, November 13th @6pm, An Evening with Great Notion

A Night with Great Notion

One of our favorite Portland breweries is once again making the long trek northward to deliver beer to the cold, wet, and SAD masses of Seattle. Great Notion will be bringing us a few goodies on draft to tide you over with liquid sunshine until the land bridge that was I-5 thaws out and you can make the trip down for yourselves.

Look for 6- 8 unique draft beers
