Washington Cask Beer Festival is one of the largest and longest-running events of its kind!

Beers are poured by gravity or via a beer engine and served at cellar temp to let the flavor nuances shine. It’s fresh, unfiltered, and simply one of the best ways to enjoy craft beer. Held each year in the heart of Seattle, this is a can’t miss event for beer lovers everywhere!

Summer Ale tastes like tangerine flowers in a glass, endless days brewed into nectar of barley and hops. Four-hundred twenty reasons to enjoy this beer. Our answer to bigger is better, Summer Ale is as simple as craft beer gets. One grain, one hop. Simplicity...yet, so much more. "Beer has food value, but food has no beer value." – VWP
Down & Dirty: 2-Row Pale malt and Amarillo® hops. Nutten else.

Join us and The Mountaineers on February 14 to welcome Ryan Hudson, a professional snowboarder who's passionate about providing outdoor education and leadership skills to inner-city youth.
Severely impoverished since birth, Ryan was the youngest of five children. Even though he and his siblings were raised in and out of homeless shelters, Ryan was always drawn to the outdoors. He used to skate four miles to a skateboard park, spend all day skating, then skate back home. At 14, he found the Toussaint Academy, a shelter for homeless and runaway teenagers. It was here he was introduced to Outdoor Outreach, a nonprofit dedicated to empower at-risk youth through outdoor activities. They took him on his first snowboarding trip into the mountains. While other kids slept in the van, he just stared out the windows and thought ‘this is awesome.’
Today Ryan is a competing athlete and continues to be active with Outdoor Outreach. He wants to inspire current and future generations to find their passions in life and make it their purpose. He hopes to empower other at-risk youth to make positive, lasting changes in their lives through outdoor exploration. Join us to hear Ryan's story about the transformational power of outdoor experiences.
In addition to all of that, Fremont beer will be served! Tickets here.

PHANTOM CHAIR IPA
Three Years Ago, out of the darkest reaches of a lonely universe, on a spinning rock three planets from the burning Sun, emerged a hero to the unserved craft beer masses of Central Seattle (and their dogs and children). His name was Chuck. Bringing forth the light and vision to unite all the great Craft Beer Houses and Food Trucks into one glorious entity, Chuck’s Hop Shop Central District, Chuck’s CD, fought back the darkness of Corporate Beer to bring great beer and great people together. It is our honor to brew this Third Anniversary Beer for Chuck’s CD, and we hope you enjoy it with a friend, old or new, and raise a toast to Chuck’s CD and all the fine people who make it such a special place in our community. So, Phantom Chair IPA is a hazy IPA loaded with metric tons of hop goodness. DRINK THIS BEER FRESH…IT WILL NOT AGE. Bursting forth with Simcoe, Ekuanot, Columbus, and Unnamed Experimental Hops, this radiant, hazy IPA will remind you of the warmth and light brought into our world by Chuck and the fine people at Chuck’s Hop Shop Central District. History flows forward on rivers of beer. VWP
