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.

We have 3 events this year for Seattle Beer Week.
Saturday, May 6th starting at 10AM we will be releasing our Anniversary beer. This years beer was brewed for us by The Ale Apothecary. Paul at The Ale Apothecary created a special beer to help us celebrate being in business for 18 years. The beer is a mixed fermentation ale (saccharomyces and lactobacillus) brewed with agave nectar and aged in Agave de Cortés Mezcal barrels generously sourced by our friends at Back Bar Project. 750ml bottles will be limited to 1 per person (we have just 204 bottles available for sale). This beer is only available in bottle so we will not have draft to pour, nor will we be doing bottle pours due to the scarcity. Bottles will be $45. We will also have bottles of The Ale Apothecary Sahalie, La Tache, and El Cuatro available on the same day.
Monday, May 8th from 6-8pm we will have our always highly anticipated Cellar Beer Tasting. This event is Sold Out.
Friday, May 12th, 4:20-6:30ish we will have our friends from Lagunitas Brewing Co. here to party. Expect 4 beers on draft, including a couple specialties as well as bottle pours of multiple Gnarleywine vintages, 12th of never can specials, and more.
