On Saturday November 11, over 650 folks slushed through the drizzle to the cozy (maybe too cozy!?) Phinney Center Blue Building to taste from some 70+ brews from 37 local microbreweries at our sold-out 30th Anniversary Winter Beer Taste.

Seven breweries collaborated with the PNA Beer Committee to make special concoctions for the event; two of those won crowd favorite. The votes counted up as follows:

#1. Georgetown Brewing Company: Chardell Chocovfefe Stout

#2. Reuben’s Brews: Haze in the Hood

#3. Dirty Couch Brewing: Menagerie Sour Ale

#1 Cider. Woodinville Ciderworks: Oaked Chipotle

(See the program with the full list of breweries, brews and their descriptions.)

The beers and ciders were excellent; tasters and brewers alike had a great time. And, of course, we’re tickled that PNA-staffer/Beer Taste Planner Extraordinaire Chardell’s namesake beer won first place. (And another PNA collaboration beer-Reuben’s Brews‘ Haze in the Hood – was #2).

Stay tuned to find out how much this fabulous event raised for PNA’s activities, programs and services for our community!
