The 4th annual Seattle Beer Week started off with a bang and FOUR kick off parties!

The Finkels of Pike Brewing celebrate the pairing of beer and chocolate each year right before Valentine’s Day with their Chocofest that they like to bill as “foreplay before the big day.” So maybe this is the pairing we should be romanticizing.

As the temperature rises, I look for a beer with a lower alcohol content. I want a thirst quencher not a dehydrator after working in the yard. Sometimes these beers are called “lawn mower beers” because they hit the spot when you want to...

Are you ready for the final weekend of Seattle Beer Week 2011? It has been a long, fun and sometimes overwhelming week of beer in Seattle.

W ashington Beer Commission’s 2nd annual Belgianfest was a showcase for Washington brewers’ skill and creativity in crafting Belgian style brews. Although last year’s inaugural Belgianfest was relatively small, this year’s boasted a bigger location, more brewers and more beer!
Even with a bigger location at Magnuson Park, both tasting sessions of Belgianfest 2011 sold out. It was...
