The tenth year of Seattle Beer Week is quickly approaching. This year’s celebration of all things beer takes place from Thursday May 10th through Sunday May 20th. We’ll be hosting four events over the eleven day stretch, including a couple of ticketed events. We will be open for normal business during the ticketed events, but the event tastings will be limited to those who purchased tickets ahead of time.
Saturday May 12th: A Night with Seapine
Our friends and family from Seapine will be joining us for the evening. They’ll be bringing some fun kegs with them, including their Coffee Sea Witch and some delicious hoppy beer. Festivities will begin at 6pm.
Sunday May 13: Sour Cellar Tasting
We’ll be hosting our annual Sour Cellar Tasting again this year again. We’ll dig into our cellar to find some funky and sour beers that we’re sure you’ll enjoy. This will be a ticketed event with 12 seats available for the event. Tickets will be $94 and go on sale Tuesday April 24th. The Sour Cellar Tasting will start at 3pm.
Wednesday May 16th: De Dolle Brouwers Cellar Tasting
We’re really excited about this one! De Dolle has been a house favorite of the Bottleworks crew for years and years. We’ve built up quite a collection of awesome beers from this small Belgian brewery and this event will be a great way for you to explore an amazing brewery and the different experiments they’ve done over the past couple of decades. This will be another ticketed event with 12 seats available. Tickets for this one will be $50 and go on sale Wednesday April 25th. The tasting will begin at 6pm.
Saturday May 19th: Barrel Aged Beers with Fremont Brewing
The fine folk from Fremont will be helping us wrap up our Beer Week events with an evening of barrel aged beers. We’ll be tapping a three year vertical of Kentucky Dark Star/Bourbon Barrel Aged Dark Star from 2015-2017 and pulling some bottles from the cellar for bottle pours. We will have a very limited number of Ancient One Dark Star bottle pours available as part of a flight with the 2015-2017 KDS/BBADS. The Ancient One pours will only be available as part of the flight and will likely go quick. We’ll start tapping kegs and popping bottles at 6pm.
First and foremost, we wish our compatriots over at Brouwer’s Cafe a happy 13th anniversary!
To celebrate this auspicious occasion the Brouwer’s crew hooked up with the fine folks at Structures Brewing in Bellingham, WA and The North Fork Brewery in Deming, WA to deliver two awesome beers. Structures brings the haze with a Double IPA called Wave of Mutilation while North Fork worked their sour magic to make a barrel aged sour with pluots called Number 13 Baby!
We will have cans of Wave of Mutilation and 750ml bottles of Number 13 Baby! ready to go when we open on March 23rd. We’ll be opening at 10am that day, but just for to-go sales until our regular opening time of 11am. We’re opening a little earlier than usual so you can get your bottles and cans, then head over to Brouwers to celebrate with them when they open at 11:30am. We will not have draft of either beer on Saturday, March 23rd, but Brouwer’s will have both beers on draft, as well as commemorative glassware and t-shirts available for purchase.
Structures Wave of Mutilation cans: $24/4pk, 2 4pk per person limit (subject to change)

Join us on Thursday, February 22nd to celebrate our 19th Anniversary. We will have a fantastic tap lineup to celebrate and will be releasing our 19th Anniversary beer. Reclusa is a barrel-aged imperial stout we had the pleasure of blending with our friends from Fort George Brewery. We will have 500ml bottles for sale to take home as well as having Reclusa on draft all day. Stop by anytime and raise a glass to 19 years.
It might come as no surprise to those who drink a pint or two weekly here but our house IPA made by our friends at Reuben’s Brews has taken home some prestigious hardware. Triumvirate IPA has taken a gold medal at both the World Beer Cup and the Great American Beer Festival. For the first time ever, Reuben’s is celebrating by doing a small canning run of Triumvirate. We will be releasing cans starting Saturday, December 9th when we open.

Besides for Duvel, the most famous Belgian strong-golden ale, Duvel Moortgat owns Maredsous Abbey Ales, Liefmans, De Konink, Achouffe, Ommegang, and Boulevard. We will be pouring an assortment from these brands to celebrate this historic family owned brewing company. Fun starts at 5.
