Brouwer’s celebrates its 10th anniversary today the same way it has celebrated barleywine, hops, weekdays, and new releases for the past decade: lots of beer! This includes two specially brewed anniversary beers made in collaboration with New Belgium of Colorado and Reuben’s Brews, located in Ballard. Brouwer’s blog describes the two brews:
In honor of this 10-year milestone we have two very special beers to share with you. New Belgium was kind enough to open up their “wood forest” and allow us to blend a sour beer. We had a great time hanging out with Eric Salazar, on a sunny December day in Fort Collins, where we tasted close to 20 different fouders. We came up with a 50/50 fouder blend we think everyone will enjoy, but this is a draft only offering.The second beer was brewed at one of our favorite Seattle Breweries, Reuben’s Brews. Adam, Mike and Thor were great hosts and allowed us to sit in on the brew, on a sunny Monday in early March. This IIPA, appropriately named Gobsmacked (a British slang term for astonished) is a blend of Citra, Mosaic and Galaxy Hops, and it will have your lips smacking.
The numerous taps will also be filled with other anniversary beers from the cellar. Brouwer’s is open from 11 am until 2 am every day and located at 400 N 35th Street.
