For those in the Seattle area, or those who may travel there, Brouwer’s Cafe has some killer events coming up like a Firestone Walker Ugly Sweater Party, Elysian Pumpkin Roadshow and the infamous Big Wood Festival which I hope to make it to myself.
Thursday, November 20th starting at 6pm, Firestone Walker Ugly Sweater Party
Brouwer’s taps some Firestone Walker beers, invite people to join them and encourage them to wear Ugly Sweaters so that they can win prizes. In the past years, pretty much everyone that wore an ugly sweater has left with some kind of prize. Tom comes up with some games to keep the party going, last year there was lots and lots of limbo going on, and everyone in attendance probably is still sick of the limbo song. That’s the idea. This year there will be the option to cross stitch your own ugly sweater ornament. Supplies will be limited.
Brouwer’s will be tapping:
- 15th Anniversary
- Parabola 2013
- Mocha Merlin
- Agrestic Sour
- Union Jack Ipa
- Wookie Jack Black Rye Ipa
- DBL Jack Imp Ipa
- Pivo Pilsner
