I will be out in Seattle for a few weeks for training and was wondering if any of you would be interested in getting together for a few beers and swapping some stories? I'm thinking either Friday, April 20 or Saturday the 21st at the Issaquah Brewhouse
Let me know what your thoughts are. Cheers! :mug:

I'm actually heading to Portland that weekend for the Hair of the Dog Brewing Co.'s anniversary party. How long are you in town and where are you staying? I'd be happy to host a NW beer tour!

Well I've made my way out to Seattle finally. I'll be out here the next 3 weeks if anyone is interested in getting together for a few beers. If you can't make it how about suggesting some pubs/bars for me to check out while I'm out here. :mug:

Since you'll be staying in the Bellevue area, be sure and check out The Taphouse Grill in downtown Bellevue. With 160 taps, I'm sure you'll find a few beers to your liking. Other noteworthy places to visit while in town are:

Big Time Brewery in the U District
Elysian Brewing Company on Capitol Hill
Pike Brewing Company at Pike Place Market
Collins Pub in Pioneer Square (My local)
The Dog & Pony Alehouse in Renton
Rogue Issaquah Brewhouse in Issaquah
Redhook Ale Brewery in Woodinville
The Duck Island Alehouse in Seattle (near Greenlake)
Uber in Seattle (2 blocks north of the Duck Island)
Brouwer's in Fremont
Bottleworks in Wallingford (For beers to take back with you to IA)

I apologize for not being able to post this sooner but I just want to give a huge thanks to Brewtopia and his SWMBO for showing me a fantastic time in Seattle. Brewtopia was able to hook me up judging beer for a local competition while I was out there. We met up a few nights later for a few beers at The Collins Pub in the Pioneer Square area. Then the highlight of the trip was a tour of the Naked City Brewing Company!! I've been to a lot of breweries but this one blew my mind. You've got one amazing home...er.. brewery Brewtopia! Again thank you so much!!!:mug:

Honestly Brewtopia, you need to put together a video tour of your place. Every shot I see of it looks like it's wall-to-wall beer.

In reality, it pretty much is. Walls, closets, etc... It's a small place and besides beer, the only other major thing is Brewtopia's extensive collection of classic movies and TV shows.

Unfortunately the middle of the week doesn't work out too well for me. If it were a weekend I'd definately give it a shot. Trying to see if I can get out there for Elysian's Pumpkin Fest, depending on whether or not that is the weekend SWMBO is going out of town.

Hey dblvsn, Stix Brewery, where I've been working is having a cigar & cask porter night on the 3rd. Are you up for it? Cigar and a pint of cask porter for $10 and you get to keep the Stix logo glass.

Any other Seattle HBTer's out there want to welcom dblvsn back to town? I just tapped my IPA and Belgian Wit, we'll be taking samples from the barrel on Tuesday night. Wednesday it's off to Stix on South Lake Union for some Cask Porter and cigars.

Come on down!

Brewtopia, with your place lighted the way it is in the pics, it really does look like you guys are chilling at a brewpub. Wish I could have made it.

I feel like a celebrity now! :rockin: Big thanks to Brewtopia and his swmbo for their hospitality. As usual the beers were fantastic. Well I wasn't a big fan of the IPA but the other 5 or so were spectacular. Can't wait to make it out there again. Until next time... Prost!!:mug:
