Big Time Brewery is holding an AHA Rally (American Homebrewers Association). Homebrewers will be in attendance, sharing their best batch and trying to hook up with breweries to get their concoction brewed for Pro-Amateur competition. A Pro-Am pairs a home brewed recipe with a commercial brewery, to produce the beer at scale.
Homebrewers aren’t the only ones invited. Beer lovers of all levels are welcome and will be able to taste a ton of Big Time beers along with at least six potential Pro-Am beers, and get a tour of Big Time’s facilities. Learn more about homebrewing, catch the fever, or just drink and judge.

Big Time Brewery, 4133 University Ave. NE, 5pm
Free for current AHA members, $33 for new memberships
Petit Beerfest at Laughing Buddha in South Seattle
Laughing Buddha is hosting a four brewery tasting in South Park at their new brewery expansion. Neighbor Baron Brewing will be there pouring, along with nanobrewery Schooner Exact and NKOTB Two Beers Brewing. Patrons of Beveridge Place will be familiar with Schooner Exact and their IPA, and I profiled the Asian-inspired beers of Laughing Buddha a few weeks ago, which are indeed inspired. Baron Brewing concentrates on German-style beer, and I spot more of their tap handles every month, especially and gleefully that of their Schwarzbier. Two Beers is brand-spanking new, and I’m excited to try them after hearing lots of buzz about their Belgian Wit. (And they have a super cute website.)
Saturday August 23rd
