It’s the sixth installment of this year’s Adventure Run Series. Start at Roadrunner Sports and collect raffle tickets throughout the neighborhood, running, jogging, or walking to each checkpoint. At the end, drink a pint to raise money for The Ethiopia Project.www.adventurerun.com/seattle/
Stefanie has promised 4 handles of Gtown beer, swag giveaways, and a grand prize of a growler with a fill of your choice of Georgetown beer to go. Her roommate has a cat, so I’m inclined to trust whatever Stef says.www.facebook.com/Wookscraftandcork/
Beers in the birches? Ales in the elms? Lagers in the locusts? Porters in the poplars? Nah, Wine in the Pines, but also all those other things. We’ll be there pouring some of our most delicious brews, alongside wineries and distilleries. Snacks and commemorative glasses provided.www.swiftwatercellars.com/eventcalendar/
Join Marzano at this cozy bottle shop and tap room when he brings Tomtoberfest, Bodhizafa, Johnny Utah and maybe a little something special to this corner of the city.
8016 15th Ave NE, Seattle, WA 98115
Careful man, there’s a beverage here. A Bob’s Brown Ale to be exact. There are only 5 lanes left for our final Bob’s blowout of the year! It’s the last chance to get a pint of Bob's before it is gone, baby, gone until May 14th, 2017. Even if you don't bowl, just hanging out, buying a few raffle tickets and enjoying a pint of Bob's helps raise much needed funds to house children and families during treatment at Seattle Childrens. All ages welcome, but leave the Pomeranians at home.westseattlebowl.com
Get your ticket for delicious beers from 12 or so different breweries and cideries and a super awesome music line up featuring Eldridge Gravy and the Court Supreme. Sounds delicious. 21 and over, with leashed dogs of all ages welcome. Benefitting the Mary Olsen Farm, preserving and sharing the history of the White River Valley and South King County.wrvmuseum.org/hopsandcrops.html
Restaurant Wars aims to put the best of the best in one place for one night. It’s free to attend the famers market and chef demos, but a $17 ticket lets you try small plates from 8 top local restaurants. Pair it up with tasty beer to make it a full meal deal. Stef said something about an IPA competition, but they don’t mention it on the website, so maybe that’s something you can just do secretly inside your head.www.restaurant-wars.com
Winston Churchill once said "I drink a great deal. I sleep a little, and I smoke cigar after cigar. That is why I am in two-hundred-percent form." If you like cigars the way Winston likes cigars, check out Little Smoke, Eastern Washington’s only premium cigar festival. Georgetown beer samples, snacks and live music should all pair nicely with those cigars. 15 cigars to be exact. That’s a lot of cigars. Winston would be pleased.northernquest.com/entertainment/little-smoke-cigar-festival-1
Five pizzas, five beers. What else needs to be said? You didn’t seriously want to cook dinner on a Tuesday, did you?mckaystaphouse.com/content.asp?page=bellingham
Start at Roadrunner Sports and collect raffle tickets throughout the neighborhood, running, jogging, or walking to each checkpoint. At the end, drink a pint to raise money for The Ethiopia Project.www.adventurerun.com/kent/
Jrob’s been tight lipped on the details of this event, but it’s Piatti, and they make stellar food. Pair it with some awesome beer (ours) and it just doesn’t get any better.piatti.com/seattle/
Nathan will be bringing some beer and swag for a little Wednesday night promo action. This day ALSO happens to be Nathan’s birthday. Apparently folks used to think that evil spirits were attracted to folks celebrating birthdays, so the act of well wishes were supposed to fend off said evil spirits. Honestly, they probably just wanted some cake. So you should go and give him good wishes, a birthday spanking, or grease his nose or whatever one traditionally does in these sorts of situations.www.brownlantern.com
One Yelp reviewer says “I haven't seen this many animals eaten since the HBO Furry Cathouse Orgy documentary special.” Not sure what that’s all about since I don’t have cable, but being a “cat person” I’m going to see if I can get that from the library. The noise level is also listed as “average” so you can catch up with your friends without having to yell. Marzano will be there doing his Marzano thing, which is usually chatting up folks about the Georgetown beer on tap and giving away swag.

It’s the WA Beer Commission’s beer fest for folks on the other side of the state! Gather in the crisp Fall air and sample beer from 40 different breweries pouring over 150 different beers - how will you choose? Friday is 21+, but Saturday is All Ages.washingtonbeer.com/festivals/inland-nw-craft-beer-festival.php
Come drink at one of the best places to toast Oktoberfest. The first two days are 21+, but lucky for parents and babysitters, all ages and dogs are welcome on Sunday. Last year the site said "Dogs are cool. No snakes” prompting the initial question, was that a problem previously? Tattoos of pythons eatin’ a little mouse wearin’ a sailor hat that says “snake farm” are, however, welcome. Our Bodhizafa IPA and Gusto Crema Coffee Beer will be rocking the taps.fremontoktoberfest.com
It's that time of year again! Join the good folks of LUMA here at Georgetown Brewing for an evening of beer, food, fun, and the best all rock polka band this side of Frankfurt! Listen to Zeppelin, Van Leppard, & Def Halen played by true gentlemen in lederhosen. Ticket price includes two beers and entertainment! Be sure to bring cash for extra beers, food and raffle tickets! All proceeds from the evening benefit families and cancer research at Seattle Children's Hospital. Must be 21 or over.lumarocktoberfest2016.eventbrite.com
Georgetown beers? Yes! Beer specials? Yes! Swag? Yes! Garrett? Yes! Baby opossums that stroll into your house when you aren’t looking and then live there for 2 days before you finally figure out what that sound is and open a window for them to crawl out of in the middle of the night? Please not again!www.facebook.com/TheBrassKrakenPub/
What does a German BBQ look like? Probably sausagey. Find out for sure when Jrob helps host this BBQ with plenty of our Tomtoberfest on hand.rheinhausseattle.com/events/georgetown-brewing-bbq-biergarten/
For this month’s Sound & Vision, BAM brings super awesome jazz+ Seattle band Industrial Revelation to the stage (I call it jazz+ because it’s way more than jazz - weird kinda soundtracky music with some hip hop influence - but also jazz because jazz can be a lot of things, ya know?). It’s also the opening of the BAM Biennial, Metalmorphosis. Gtown beer will be available along with tasty food truck choices. All ages welcome, and under 12 get in free!www.bellevuearts.org/calendar/event/09_30_sound_and_vision.html
Ah McMinnville, our favorite city famous for UFO sightings. They’ll be pouring our Bodhizafa IPA (voted the bestest beer at Bend Brewfest this year, btw) and Johnny Utah Pale Ale so you can git yr hops on. Proceeds benefit Ghana Hope Foundation and St. James Catholic School in McMinnville.orbrewsandbbqs.com
Beergarden will match the Munich Oktoberfest with 16 days of brewery Oktoberfest tappings, beginning with the tapping of the first keg by Eugene Mayor Kitty Piercy on Saturday, Sept 17th at 4:00pm. Each day will feature an Oktoberfest or German Style beer, an activity and/or live music. All four food trucks on site will also feature German-inspired dishes. Our Tomtoberfest should be hitting the taps at some point, but Sean wasn’t sure when, so keep an eye out for details.www.beergardenme.com/event/2nd-annual-oktoberfest-celebration/
Once you hit Dismal Nitch, head south to Astoria for the Pacific NW Brew Cup. We’re pouring our seasonally appropriate Tomtoberfest for the folks. Proceeds benefit local downtown revitalization efforts.pacificnorthwestbrewcup.com
The plan is to be there pouring fresh hop Johnny Utah, but sometimes hops aren’t ready when you want them to be, so it’s possible that our fresh hop beer won't be ready in time for this fest. If that's the case, then we'll have to bail on this one. Stay tuned. You should go anyway. Fresh hops 4lyfe.hoodriver.org/hops-fest/
The event info says "Don’t just drink beer, learn beer! At this 6th annual brewfest, sample beers from local breweries while learning how beer is made, how to grow hops and enjoy some fun beer tricks while you're at it!” First of all, if I put “learn beer” in my updates, Mat would slap any remaining grammar right out of me. Second, "beer tricks" I hope means tricks I can do to win bets at bars. Probably not. Sean will be there pouring Bodhizafa IPA and Johnny Utah. Do not ask him about science. Proceeds benefit OMSI.www.omsi.edu/calendar/omsi-after-dark-brewfest

Who knows what Adam has planned for PB Night, but let’s hope it includes both Johnny Utah and Bodhizafa on tap, and that he remembers to bring the PB Blu Ray Disc. Also, the California debut of our updated Johnny Utah shirts and trucker hats. Whooooo!!www.devilsslidetaproom.com
