UPDATE: BREW Seattle is Officially Sold Out
Tickets for Seattle magazine's first ever BREW Seattle, a beer tasting festival featuring more than 20 local breweries, officially went on sale on Thursday, October 10. Your $40 pass to the November 14 event earns you six tasting tokens that are each good for a five-ounce pour (in your own special BREW seattle mini mug!) of the oodles of brews that will be on hand. Whose spectacular suds should you expect? Think Epic Ales, Fremont Brewing, the soon-to-open Stoup Brewing, West Seattle Brewing Co., Populuxe Brewing and more. Naturally, there will be food: sausage paninis and pulled pork sliders from Pinky's BBQ, plus food truck bites from El Camion and Chopstix.
Update: We've nailed down the different beers that each brewery will be pouring. Herewith, an exciting sampling.
