The good people at Northwest Brewing News kindly send out a regular e-newsletter, titled Hop Tips, informing beer lovers about what is going on in the world of Northwest brewing. Northwest Brewing News is one of my favorite sources for local beer information. Yes, I consider Washington, Oregon, Northern California and even Alaska to be local.
- Tuesday February 17th – Chuckanut Brewery and Kitchen in Bellingham will be hosting a Kolsch night. Kolsch is a relatively hard to find German ale, and with pints coming in a $1.50 it is hard to pass up this opportunity. From my understanding this event will be occurring every Tuesday until otherwise posted.
- February 23rd 6:00PM – Chuckanut Brewery and Kitchen is putting on a winter beer dinner. Tickets will need to be purchased in advance online.
- February 24th – Boundary Bay Brewing Company is presenting a Fat Tuesday extravaganza. Dixieland Jazz and a special menu should make for a great evening. I believe Dix Brewing in Vancouver is also hosting a Mardi Gras party on February 19th. Why not enjoy both.
These are just a few of the great beer events taking place in the Pacific Northwest. Although Vancouver is nowhere near Washington as far as craft brewing goes, Vancouverites are still quite fortunate to live in such a great beer region, so please take advantage of what is right in our own backyard.
