If you live in Seattle, beginning this week and lasting for ten days, you might notice people moving a little slower than normal in the mornings and leaving work a little earlier in afternoons. Why? Because it's Seattle Beer Week!
Seattle "Beer Week" actually lasts for 10 days, beginning this Thursday, May 13. Coincidentally, the kick off begins on my birthday. So, we'll be taking in the opening ceremonies at Hales Brewery. And then I plan on checking out some of the other events throughout the 10 days.
Seattle Beer Week was put together to celebrate Seattle Beer Culture and everything related to Seattle Beer. It's going to be a week of beer tastings, beer and food pairings, beer drink specials and just a general good time to try some new beer with people that really enjoy beer. I also plan to do some networking and maybe learn a few things about brewing and the beer industry in the process.
