Musical acts included Bump Kitchen, Jumpin’ Johnny and Mr. E Band. Additionally, Maverick’s Steakhouse and Casino sponsored a dunk tank that beckoned volunteers from the crowd to be dunkers or dunkies. Food service was provided by vendors including 2R Bar & Bistro, Glondo’s Sausages, The BBQ Schacht, Rustic Root Catering, and Suncadia. As the sun began to set, we were feeling the effects of our festive afternoon, so it was nice to roll back into Roslyn via the free shuttle service provided by the brewfest.]]>
This memorial day weekend, we had the pleasure of meeting with Kent Larimer, Roslyn Brewing Company’s head brewer, to discuss the brewery and enjoy a beverage in the taphouse. We had a great time (as we always do) and enjoyed the beers and the conversations that accompanied them. The next time you’re in town for the weekend, be sure to stop the brewery to see the gang, enjoy a refreshing beer, or fill a growler to go (which is a popular option for Roslyn area campers).

Chuck’s 85th St. Market is located at 656 NW 85th St, Seattle, WA 98117. Check out their website or their Facebook page. I also have to give them geek points for keeping their online beer list updated via Google docs.]]>

One of the nicest things about Spring in Seattle is the arrival of Seattle Beer Week. On May 13th, the week kicks off with an opening party at Hale’s Brewery (the producer of this year’s official SBW beer). Following the kickoff – breweries and taphouses around Seattle explode with activity dedicated to enjoying quality beers. The week (which is actually closer to 10 days) was established to recognize Seattle’s role in the micro and craft brewing industry and to encourage locals to get out and appreciate the great beers that this region is known for producing. A complete list of events is available here and a map of participating locations is also available.
