Bottleshop Collaboration Project #1: Cloudburst Soul Proprietor

When our friend Jordan White, General Manager of Chuck's Hop Shop Central District, approached us to be a part of a new project to foster collaboration, comradery, and a shared love of great craft beer, we were honored to be asked. When we heard that Cloudburst Brewing volunteered to be the first brewery to take on the challenge, we jumped in with both feet. In all, 11 Pacific Northwest bottle shops formed like Voltron to create the Bottleshop Collaboration Project (or “B.C.P.” for short). 

The first fruits of our labor is a hop smorgasbord of a brew, the kind Cloudburst is known for. Dubbed “Soul Proprietor IPA,” it is brewed with Chinook, Citra and Galaxy hops and a ton of Mosaic hop dust, and only one keg of this extremely limited brew is allocated to each of the 11 bottle shops. And we are tapping ours up in sync with the 10 other bottle shops, all at the same time—Friday, March 24th, at 5p. Don’t miss this opportunity to try an extremely limited, one-keg-then-gone-forever epic collab beer.

Brewer’s Night with Rainy Daze, Wed. March 29th, 5-7p

We’ve had a particularly wet and rainy winter, with brief intermissions of drizzle just for variety. The constant deluge can make a dent in our generally sunny dispositions, and beer helps too. Which is why we are choosing to embrace the rainy days with our friends at Rainy Daze for our latest Brewer’s Night.

Join us Wednesday, March 29th from 5 to 7p, as we host the crew from the brewery. Take cover from the rain, and meet owner and head brewer, Mike Montoney. We’ll have a wide swath of awesome brews on tap, including Jerry Spring-Beer Pale Ale, Goat Boater IPA, a brand new New England-style IPA, Chocolate Kittens Truffle Stout (a collaboration with Barry), and Mind Funk Coffee Blonde Ale. You might even take home some rad brewery schwag. Don’t miss it!

Modern Times Pre-release Preview. Thursday 3/9, 5-7 PM

on Tue, 03/07/2017 - 14:41


It's no secret that San Diego, CA is home to dozens of great breweries. But we have been getting many requests for one brewery in particular:

Modern Times.

Modern Times Primary focus is aroma-driven, complex, flavorful, session-ish beers. They often brew hybrid styles, combining the features they like from established categories to create new, Island-Of-Doctor-Moreau-style mash-ups.

They premiered their brand in the seattle market recently, and will launch in the South Sound within the next few weeks.

Brewer’s Night with Urban Family, Wed. Mar. 1st, 5-7p

Nestled comfortably in Seattle’s quaint neighborhood of Magnolia, one could be forgiven for claiming ignorance about Urban Family Brewing company. Away from the lines and the hype of other Seattle neighborhoods, Urban Family has been churning out brews as varied as Mexican chocolate cake ales and barrel-aged, mixed-fermentation Farmhouse beers. There doesn’t seem to be a style they won’t tackle, as long as they have fun doing it. Everything they make is small batch, hand crafted, and unlike anything else in the city.

Join us Wednesday, March 1st, from 5 to 7 pm as we host the crew from Urban Family for a night of awesome beers and neighborly fun. Drink with the owners and brewers, and we will have four awesome Urban Family brews on tap: Double Citra IPA, Of Both Worlds Nelson Sauvin Dry-Hopped Saison, The Madame Dry-Hopped Sour, and Death to Cereal Breakfast Stout. Don’t miss it!
