May Is The Month

One week from today marks the beginning of the 2016 Seattle Beer Week. Festivities will run from May 12th through the 22nd – that’s a lot of beer-drinking opportunities!

What Is Happening?

The official opening ceremony takes place at Reuben’s Brews at 5pm when the ceremonial tapping of the first Daily Pale, the official beer of the 2016 Seattle Beer Week, will occur. At 4.9% ABV and 55 IBUs, the Daily Pale is a hop-forward session IPA with an aroma and flavor profile characterized by citrus and passion fruit and undertones of kiwi and honeydew. As an added bonus, Reuben’s will be donating 1% of proceeds from the Daily Pale to the Seattle Parks Foundation as a thank you to Seattle1.
