Lagunitas 4/20 Practice Party, Wednesday, April 19th, 5-7p

It’s no secret that Lagunitas Brewing Co is down with the green and sticky stuff (hops?) so for them, 4/20 is the most hallowed of holidays. And we are helping to get them get ready with a Practice Party the day before. Join us for our latest installment of our popular Brewers’ Night series, with Lagunitas. The crew will be on hand to help raffle off some awesome brewery schwag, and we will be tapping up some special brews. On tap will be their annual 4/20 favorite, Waldo’s Special Ale Triple IPA, High-Westified Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Coffee Stout, and their awesome Czech-style Pilsner. You won’t want to miss this!

German Beer Day at Pint Defiance, Sunday, April 23rd, 1pm

2017 marks the 501st birthday of Germany’s beloved brewing purity law, “Reinheitsgebot.” And the beer world is turning it into an annual holiday—German Beer Day. Beer lovers in Germany and around the world will be celebrating the anniversary, and at Pint Defiance, we have something special planned.

Sunday, April 23rd, starting at 1pm, you’ll get an opportunity to try an extremely rare and delicious German beer—Radeberger Zwickel. This brew is extremely hard-to-find this fresh outside of Germany. And to bump up the authentic German beer experience, we will be pouring 1 liter German mugs of the zwickelbier—and the first 30 people to order get to keep the mug! We will also be pouring #samplersunday flights of German specialty beer bottles, and our friend Annie Han from Radeberger Gruppe will be here to raffle off some awesome bier schwag. You won’t want to miss this. Prosit!

Pint Defiance Seattle Beer Week 2017 Tour de Craft, May 4th – 14

Once again, Seattle Beer Week is upon us and this year we are taking our popular Seattle Beer Week Marathon to a whole new level. We are celebrating the comradery and family that craft beer fosters, and expanding outside our state lines to include the entire country, exploring it region-by-region in what we call a “Tour de Craft.” 

Become a Beer Traveler
Every day during the eleven days of Seattle Beer Week, we will be tapping up new, unique, delicious, and hard-to-find brews that represent distinct regions from all over the country. We’ve worked hard to bring together a collection of beers that you’d be hard pressed to find anywhere else. Your challenge will be to snag a pint of these brews and get your passport punched, cementing your title as a true beer traveler. Once you complete 11 punches, you will be awarded an exclusive Rastal-brand crystal Pint Defiance SBW commemorative stemmed glass (one-size-fits-all, and no waiting for a shirt to get printed). More great beer regions to explore, more variety, and no jet lag. Grab a card at Pint Defiance and get started on your tour, starting Thursday, May 4th.

Thursday, May 4, 2017 - 11:00 to Sunday, May 14, 2017 - 23:00

The Bruery Brewery Showcase feat. White Chocolate, Sat. Apr. 15th, 4-8p

Maybe one of the most sought after releases in The Bruery's lineup, White Chocolate has been the most recent white whale of a beer to be liberated from their extensive collection of barrel-aged beer. This wheat wine, aged 100% in bourbon barrels for a year with vanilla beans and cacao nibs, comes out rich in coconut, honey, caramel and vanilla. Other than visiting the brewery in Placentia, CA, it is damn near impossible to find this beer on tap. Until now.

Saturday, April 15th, Pint Defiance will be hosting a Bruery event of epic proportions. Starting at 4pm, we will have four Bruery beers on tap: White Chocolate, Terreux Quadrupel Tonnellerie Sour Quad with blackberries, Humulus Terreux Dry-Hopped Sour, and The Order Abbey-style Ale. We will be serving up a special combo of a sampler flight of three 4oz pours PLUS an 8oz pour of White Chocolate, and the first 24 to order will get to take home a limited The Bruery glass. Do not miss this epic opportunity.
