Drew's Brews News April 2015

Beer Beer Everywhere, all for us to drink!

Before we know it Seattle Beer Week will be upon us once again. We will have to forgo seeing family and friends, leave work early and clear our social calendar for the busiest 10 ten days of beer in the city! For the full calendar, go to http://www.seattlebeerweek.com/events This is the seventh annual Seattle Beer Week and in keeping with tradition the Seattle Beer Collective selected Silver City Brewery to brew the official SBW beer. Located in Bremerton and Silverdale, has released Sieben Braü (7th Brew), a NW hoppy lager with a uniquely Seattle can design. Sieben Braü will be released on draft May 7th, and the cans are available now. Be on the look out!
