Pint Defiance 1st Anniversary Weekend, Sept. 21st & 22nd

on Thu, 09/05/2013 - 23:53

Three hundred and sixty-five days ago (as of Sept. 10th), we opened our doors to the public with a modest dream of supplying the thirsty public with quality craft beer, supporting the growth of craft beer culture, and maybe making a few new friends. Thanks to all of you this year has been so much more, and we feel like celebrating—for an entire weekend!

Starting at 11am on Saturday, September 21st, we will be kicking off two days of special releases. We’ve been squirrelling away some pretty rare kegs over the past twelve months and we can’t think of a better opportunity to share them.

Brewers' Night with Two Beers & Seattle Cider, Wed. Sept. 4th, 5-7PM

on Thu, 08/29/2013 - 21:49

Seattle isn’t yet known as the beer Nirvana (pun most definitely intended) as the likes of Bend or Portland, but that doesn’t keep us from enjoying a bevy of local delights. Few breweries have been more enthused to flood the streets of East Marginal Way with quality craft brew than Two Beers. Started in 2007, they hold strong belief in supporting the local economy, taking pride in using Washington ingredients to create all of its handcrafted beers.

Seattle Cider Co. is a new spin-off venture from the Two Beers crew, launching this month.
