12th Annual Winter Beer Festival at Elysian Brewing

Living in Seattle presents some difficult decisions for the beer drinker. If you go to the Collins Pub Real Strong Beer Festival on Friday night, will you have the energy to drag your carcass out the next day for Elysian Brewing’s 12th Annual Winter Beer Festival? Give it a shot! With spring fast approaching, this may be your last chance to enjoy your favorite winter beers or try one that you missed. Elysian’s bringing out twelve beers for the festival, six domestic craft brews and six Belgian beers. They use a system where you buy tokens from your server for $4 each.

1 token = schooner of domestic craft beer
2 tokens = schooner of Belgian beer OR sampler of all six domestics
4 tokens = sampler of all six Belgians

Here’s a list of the beers offered:

Sampler 1
Elysian – Bifrost
Elysian – Jackfrost (JD barrel aged)
Great Divide – Hibernation
Deschutes – The Abyss
Sierra Nevada – Celebration
Full Sail – Wreck the Halls

Sampler 2
Elysian – Bête Noel
Brasserie d’Achouffe – N’ice Chouffe
Brouwerij Het Anker -­ Gouden Carolus Noel
Brouwerij Huyghe -­ Delirium Noel
Brasserie St. Feuillien -­ Cuvee de Noel
Brasserie Dupont ­- Avec les Bons Voeux

This is a solid lineup and the sampler format is a great opportunity to taste several very good Belgian beers in one sitting without paying $8-10 a glass. The festival gets under way at Elysian’s Capitol Hill location (1221 E Pike St.) at noon on Saturday 2/23 and runs until 10pm.
