Brouwer’s Celebrates 10 Beer-filled Years

March 28th, 2015 by master

Brouwer’s celebrates its 10th anniversary today the same way it has celebrated barleywine, hops, weekdays, and new releases for the past decade: lots of beer! This includes two specially brewed anniversary beers made in collaboration with New Belgium of Colorado and Reuben’s Brews, located in Ballard. Brouwer’s blog describes the two brews:

In honor of this 10-year milestone we have two very special beers to share with you. New Belgium was kind enough to open up their “wood forest” and allow us to blend a sour beer.  We had a great time hanging out with Eric Salazar, on a sunny December day in Fort Collins, where we tasted close to 20 different fouders. We came up with a 50/50 fouder blend we think everyone will enjoy, but this is a draft only offering.

The second beer was brewed at one of our favorite Seattle Breweries, Reuben’s Brews. Adam, Mike and Thor were great hosts and allowed us to sit in on the brew, on a sunny Monday in early March. This IIPA, appropriately named Gobsmacked (a British slang term for astonished) is a blend of Citra, Mosaic and Galaxy Hops, and it will have your lips smacking.


The numerous taps will also be filled with other anniversary beers from the cellar. Brouwer’s is open from 11 am until 2 am every day and located at 400 N 35th Street.

‘Quirky’ Fremont Featured By BBC

January 27th, 2011 by master

If you happen to notice an influx of English, Irish, Welsh and Scottish accents in Fremont over the course of the next 6-12 months, you can probably thank the BBC for it’s story on Fremont that’s currently featured on their homepage.

The article is a rundown of Fremont for tourists who might be interested in stopping by on their trip to Seattle.

This neighbourhood, less than five miles north of the heart of downtown Seattle, continues its legacy of public art, everyday weirdness, and off-the-wall-events inclined towards nudity and costumes. Yet its popularity, soaring rent prices, new luxury condos, and inundation of high tech company offices have transformed it into something a tad different than its tie-dyed forefathers and mothers anticipated.

Fair enough.

They also name-check the Fremont Sunday Market, Hub and Bespoke, Flying Apron Bakery, Uneeda Burger, Brouwer’s Cafe, ETG Cafe and hey, this blog! The post itself comes courtesy of Lonely Planet, though with all of the Brits currently planning to visit us now, I don’t think we’ll be too lonely in our own little universe for long.
