Beer at the Ballpark – Finding good beer at T-Mobile Park, home of the Mariners

Washington Beer News - Wed, 03/27/2019 - 2:34pm

Here is our annual Beer at the Ballpark Report, our guide for finding good beer at T-Mobile Park and Seattle Mariners home games. We will update this list as more details become available and as we visit the ballpark to confirm and gather more information.

If you’re looking for good beer around the ballpark, check out our map of Seattle’s Breweries and Beer Spots. If you are looking or a comprehensive guide to visiting T-Mobile Park (food, transit, etc.), see the ballpark story from Curbed Seattle.

Our information is arranged in three sections:

As in years past, there is good beer pretty much everywhere at T-Mobile Park (still getting used to the name), but for the most-seriously afflicted beer nerds, the Specialty Beers station at Section 129 should not be missed: get there early in the game because, as they say, the best things come in small packages (smaller kegs drain fast).

Canned Beer

This year, the ballpark has upped their game when it comes to canned beer. In other words you’ll find a lot of canned craft beers at the T-Mobile Park this year.

  • Kilt Lifter -16-ounce cans Pike Brewing’s legendary Kilt Lifter are available at all High Cheese Pizza and Ivar’s concession stands. (Also, 16-ounce cans of Alaskan Amber.)
  • Value Beers – 12-ounce cans Bale Breaker Brewing’s Topcutter IPA and Reuben’s Brews Crikey IPA are available at sections 105, 111, 136, 137, 221, 243, 319, 328, and 330.
  • 12-ounce cans of Reuben’s Hazalicious IPA and 21st Amendment’s Blood Orange Brew Free or Die IPA, (as well as Rambling Route hard cider and San Juan Seltzer) are available at the two batch cocktail carts near Section 116 and Section 141.
Draft Beer Recommendations (alphabetical order)
  • Alaskan Brewing, Amber – Sections 105, 134, 146, 319, and 330
  • Aslan Brewing, Dawn Patrol Pale Ale– Section 132 (The Natural)
  • Bale Breaker, Leota Mae IPA – Section 126 (Rolling Roof Hot Dogs) and Section 333 (All-Star Club)
  • Big Sky Brewing, Moose Drool – Sections 319 and 330
  • Black Raven Brewing, Trickster IPA – Diamond Club, Hit it Here Café, Sections 134 and 185
  • Breakside Brewing, Pilsner – Jack Daniel’s bar (in the ‘Pen), Sections 136, 185 and 330
  • Chuckanut Brewery, Kolsch – Sections 121 and 185

  • Sumerian Brewing, Narcissism IPA – Sections 133, 134, and the Jack Daniel’s bar (in the ‘Pen)
Cask, Barrel-Aged, and Specialty Beer Station

Located at Section 129 (behind home plate). From the stadium’s home plate entrance, go up the stairs and look to your right. Expect a frequently rotating selection of specialty beers from breweries both near and far.

Cask-Conditioned Beer – The lineup includes fresh cask-conditioned ales pouring from two beer engines. Breweries involved in this year’s cask program include: Double Mountain Brewing, Maritime Pacific Brewing, Reuben’s Brews, Machine House Brewery, Diamond Knot Brewing, Sumerian Brewing, Stoup Brewing, Georgetown Brewing, and others.

Specialty beer station is at Section 129. New this year, more specialty beers on tap.

The cask-conditioned beer selection typically changes for each homestand. Cask kegs are small and will run dry early in the game by design, to keep it as fresh as possible.  A fresh cask keg is tapped for EVERY game, and once it’s gone, it’s gone, usually by the third inning.

New for 2019 – Four taps of barrel-aged and specialty brews from local favorite breweries as well as nationally recognized breweries. The schedule is not announced in advance, but this year’s lineup includes rare releases from Samuel Smiths Brewery in England (beers rarely seen on tap in the U.S.A.) Also, big and burly beers from breweries like Stone Brewing, Crooked Stave, Modern Times, Funkwerks, Boneyard Brewing, Melvin Brewing, Alesmith Brewing, pFriem Family Brewers, Fort George Brewing, Breakside Brewing, Anderson Valley Brewing, Founders Brewing, Stoup Stoup Brewing, Georgetown Brewing, Port Brewing, Ecliptic Brewing, Unibroue, Kulshan Brewing, GoodLife Brewing, 21st Amendment Brewing, Barley Browns Brewing, and many others.

Behold the power of Pliny the Younger – this year’s economic impact numbers

Washington Beer News - Wed, 03/27/2019 - 10:07am

By Kendall Jones, Washington Beer Blog

Facebook Twitter Reddit Google+

 

Is Pliny the Younger the most valuable beer in the world? It’s certainly the most valuable beer in Sonoma County, California.

Not long ago I posted an op-ed piece about the Pokemonification of craft beer and how it would behoove craft breweries to accept a certain kind of non-threatening, newfangled, app-based beer-drinking behavior as the new norm for a growing number of their customers. (Potential customers, I should say.) Case in point, Russian River Brewing’s Pliny the Younger, the most coveted of all beer whales. Many of today’s younger beer enthusiast may see PTY as their grandfather’s beer, so I’m not exactly sure how this all fits together. Whatever the case, “The Younger” still reigns as the Moby Dick of craft beer, as evidenced by the $4.1 million economic impact this year’s release event had on Sonoma County’s economy. Maybe the fact that Grandfather can afford to hunt whales is what drives these remarkable numbers.

A report by the Sonoma County Economic Development Board shows the economic impact of the annual Pliny the Younger release event, which takes place over the course of two weeks at Russian River Brewing’s two locations in Sonoma County, California. One thing is certain, Pliny the Younger is so coveted that people are willing to travel great distances and spend thousands of dollars just to get their three daily glasses of the stuff.

 

Highlights:

  • The economic impact was measured at nearly $4.2 million over the course of two weeks.
  • This year’s number of $4.16 million is up from last year’s number of $3.36 million.
  • Visitors came from 42 states and 14 countries.
  • On average, each person spent $59.38 when visiting Russian River Brewing’s two brewpubs.
  • There was an average of 3.02 people in each party.
  • On average, each visitor stayed 1.8 nights.
  • Average nightly hotel cost was $290.
  • An estimated 24,700 people visited Russian River’s two brewpubs during the two-week period.

The economic impact study was based on nearly 2,400 surveys collected from visitors during the release event, a sampling of the estimated 24,700 people that visited Russian River’s pubs during the two-week release period (February 1 thru 14).

Around here, in Washington, we are largely over the Pliny hysteria. At least, I’m over it. Russian River Brewing stopped distributing beer here a few years ago and somehow we all survived. While there’s no denying that Pliny the Younger, or Pliny the Elder for that matter, is a damn good beer, it is hard to imagine dipping into my retirement fund just to get three glasses of the stuff. However, if checking into Pliny the Younger on UnTappd is worth it to you, who am I to judge? I am a man with no shortage of unreasonable passions.

I hope people who visited Russian River Brewing because of Pliny the Younger took the time to sample some of the brewery’s other amazing beers. For my money, they do a lot of things as well, or better, than PTY.

The infographic below reveals some startling numbers. Behold the power of Pliny!

Beer Release – Nordic Haze from Reuben’s Brews

Washington Beer News - Wed, 03/27/2019 - 7:36am

By Kendall Jones, Washington Beer Blog

Facebook Twitter Reddit Google+

 

Reuben’s Brews announces the release of a new beer: Nordic Haze, a  hazy IPA brewed with a historic Norwegian yeast.

Here are the release notes.

This Saturday (March 30) at 11am we are releasing Nordic Haze, a new hazy IPA fermented with kveik yeast, at the Taproom on 14th Avenue. This 6.4% hazy was brewed with an interesting strain of kveik, a historic Norwegian yeast that we are experimenting with for the first time, which adds depth and complexity to the profile of this beer. Layered with notes of stone fruits and green mango coming from the yeast are the orange citrus flavors accentuated by Comet and Citra hops.

This beer will be available to-go in our latest crowler design as well!

Airways Brewing celebrating 9 year anniversary this weekend

Washington Beer News - Tue, 03/26/2019 - 10:24am

By Kendall Jones, Washington Beer Blog

Facebook Twitter Reddit Google+

 

This Friday and Saturday (March 29 and 30) Airways Brewing celebrates its 9th anniversary at the brewery and taproom in Kent. Keep an eye on the company’s social media channels this week as they make announcements about special beer releases ahead of this weekend’s celebration.

Airways Brewing began as a small brewery operating out of a business park on West Valley Highway in Kent. In the beginning, they actually brewed most of the beer at Two Beers Brewing. It wasn’t contract brewing in the traditional sense: Alex Dittmar, the owner/brewmaster at Airways, actually did all the work himself during the hours that Two Beers wasn’t brewing any of its own beers. The brewery, which has grown a lot since those early days, has since moved to its current location just off of Highway 167 on South 212th Street. The company also operates the Airways Bistro and Beer Garden in downtown Kent.

While the special-release beers remain a secret, we do know that they’ll tap into the coveted Space Church IPA, a beer formulated and brewed to honor their nearby neighbors (and regular customers) at Blue Origin, the spaceship people. The beer will be available on draft and in cans.

When they open on Friday they’ll re-release Space Church IPA to get the weekend started, but the hootenanny really gets rolling on Saturday. More beer releases, live music, and food from A Fire Inside wood-fired pizza truck. Enjoy the musical stylings of Planet Fly and DJ Wick. Keep an eye on the Facebook event page for more details. Note that this is a 21+ event.

Peaks and Pints presents Tournament of Beer: Northwest Pilsners

Washington Beer News - Tue, 03/26/2019 - 9:35am

By Kendall Jones, Washington Beer Blog

Facebook Twitter Reddit Google+

 

Peaks and Pints in Tacoma, Washington has released the bracket for its Tournament of Beer, Northwest Pilsner edition. Go to the event website to see/download the bracket and learn more. Last year, the Tournament of Beer pitted Northwest Porters against one another in tournament-style combat, in 2017 it was IPA. This year, it’s Pilsner’s turn.

Here’s the press release from Peaks and Pints:

TOURNAMENT OF BEER: NORTHWEST PILSNERS BEGINS APRIL 5

Consider pilsner. Few other beers are as crisp and nervy as a good pilsner. The best snap your mouth to attention with a clean, bracing bitterness, delicate floral aromas and perhaps a suggestion of sweetness. The pilsner wears the granddaddy of lager beers ribbon. It’s the one they all descend from — the style that set the hops and malts rolling and ignited the world’s passion for pale, crisp, light beer. It’s simply the most popular beer style in the world.

In the Pacific Northwest, there are more than 64 popular pilsners. The Tournament of Beer proves it. During the month of February, Peaks and Pints craft beer bar asked its patrons and the public to vote for their favorite pilsners brewed in Washington and Oregon. Through an online nomination system, beer enthusiasts listed 81 pilsners with the top 64 seeding the Tournament of Beer: Northwest Pilsners’ knockout bracket. Kicking off April 5 at tournamentofbeer.com, many will consider pilsner as they vote on four pilsner battles, Monday-Friday, until the tournament’s final game, April 27.

We’re not talking about corn syrup lagers, folks. That tournament will never happen at Peaks and Pints. We’re talking pilsners brewed in the O.G. of the pilsner style, Czech (or Bohemian) Pilsner with Bavarian bottom-fermenting lager yeasts, lighter malts, and spicy Saaz hops, AND German pilsners, aka pilsener, aka “pils,” a style made with pilsner malt, Saaz or any combination of German noble hops, for a more hop-forward pils than the Czech version. Peaks and Pints seeded the top 64 Northwest pilsners voted in four bracket regions — Seattle/Greater King County, Washington state, Portland/Greater Multnomah County and Oregon with one pilsner per brewery.

The top 64 vote-getters — the cream of the crisp — will compete Monday through Friday at tournamentofbeer.com (forwards to peaksandpints.com), April 5-27. Through online voting, Washington and Oregon pilsner drinkers will vote Monday-Friday until the best pilsner in the Northwest is crowned. It’s just like March Madness, only with way more Saaz hops.

The malt-to-malt battle of Northwest pilsners grand champion will be announced at the Tournament of Beer Party, April 27, at Peaks and Pints, 3816 N. 26th St., in Tacoma’s Proctor District. The final two pilsners will battle live pouring from our Western red cedar tap log with the champion brewery receiving a permanent handle at Peaks and Pints through the spring and summer 2019.

This is the third year Peaks and Pints craft beer bar, bottle shop and restaurant in Tacoma’s Proctor District has hosted this popular beer madness. Rainy Daze Brewing Goat Boater won the 2017 Tournament of Beer: Washington IPAs, and Wingman Brewers P-51 Porter was crowned Champion in the 2018 Tournament of Beer: Northwest Porters.

Look for the first round of Northwest pilsner battles April 5, 2019.

Dwinell Country Ales bringing its wild-fermented beers to the big city and beyond

Washington Beer News - Mon, 03/25/2019 - 8:48am

By Kendall Jones, Washington Beer Blog

Facebook Twitter Reddit Google+

 

Back in December, we told you about Dwinell Country Ales for the first time (see our story). The brewery located in the small town of Goldendale, Washington focuses on farmhouse-style and wild-fermented ales. Soon, you’ll be able to get Dwinell’s beers in Seattle, and beyond, for the first time.

“Dwinell Country Ales has announced it will begin distribution in Seattle while expanding its current distribution in Oregon through a partnership with Shelton Brothers Oregon,” says an announcement from the company. “Shelton Brothers, known for distributing artisanal European and American breweries, will oversee distribution for Dwinell Country Ales at retailers in Portland, Bend, Eugene, and Astoria.”

“Seattle and Portland are great beer towns that show strong support for the kinds of beers we like to make,” says Justin Leigh, brewer and co-founder of Dwinell Country Ales. “We’re excited to team up with the folks at Shelton Brothers so we can bring our beers to more places.”

According to an announcement from the company, “We are releasing our next two bottles of barrel-aged beer soon: Levelheaded, a hoppy wild ale, and Fool’s Gold, a wild lager with Viognier grape must (brewed in collaboration with Backwoods Brewing Company).”

The announcement adds, “We are also excited to announce that we’ve expanded our distribution – you can now find our beers throughout Oregon – in Bend, more places in Portland, as well as Eugene and Astoria. And, starting next week, you can enjoy our beers in the Skagit Valley and Seattle, too!”

On Friday, March 29th Dwinell Country Ales pays a visit to Garden Path Fermentation in Burlington, Washington. Garden Path is a kindred spirit in that they also focus on wild-fermentation. On Saturday, March 30th the folks from Dwinell Country Ales will stop in Seattle to drop off some beer at Teku Tavern and Chuck’s Hop Shop (Greenwood). Likely the owners/brewers will be hanging around for a while to talk to anyone that wants to learn more about the beer and the brewery.

Further down the road, they have the following events planned in the Seattle area:

May 9 – Tasting event at The Beer Junction (start of Seattle beer week).
Aug 22 – Brewers Night Event at Beveridge Place Pub.
Aug 23/24 – West Seattle Beer and Music Festival

“You can also find out the current tap list here. With our ever-changing beers, it might be time to take a trip out to Goldendale soon to enjoy the Gorge in bloom, get a taster flight of beers, and take some bottles home with you!  If you’d like to know where to find our beer out in the wild, we keep a list on our website of places that regularly carry our beers.”

Aslan Brewing announces the release of FIFA – French India Farmhouse Ale

Washington Beer News - Mon, 03/25/2019 - 8:19am

By Kendall Jones, Washington Beer Blog

Facebook Twitter Reddit Google+

 

Aslan Brewing announces the release of FIFA – French India Farmhouse Ale. Here’s the release notice straight from the brewery:

FIFA – French India Farmhouse Ale

5.8% ABV // 33 IBU // 11.5 P
medium body + zebra gum + orchard fruit

For the 2019 version of FIFA we decided to take this beer back to its roots. Rather than creating an IPA with Belgian yeast, we sought to create a hoppy Belgian beer. The classic yeast profile is balanced against Southern Hemisphere hops to create a flavor experience that is best described as Fruit Stripe gum. Krausening created the carbonation in this beer, giving it a more refined finish.

Hops: Pacific Gem, Rakau, Taiheke
Malt: 2-Row Pale, Rye, Wheat
