19 hours in Seattle whada I drink?
« on: May 13, 2014, 02:28:01 PM »
So next Tuesday, I land in Seattle 3:00pm.  I will be staying down by the convention center.  I was thinking of hitting the Beer Junction for the night.  It  doesn't look like much ambiance but the selection is impressive.  Any recommendations on beers I can't miss or better options for places to drink?

The only caveat, I have to be coherent enough to give a 75 min. presentation at 8:00 am the next morning.  And no take home beers cause I only have an hour to catch my plane. 

TIA.
 
Maybe adding Brouwer's Cafe to the end of the nite as it's open till 2 and I'm worry about my wallet being to heavy.

The Taphouse Downtown has a solid selection, and sometimes has Russian River on tap. Had my first Pliny there. :wub:

Check and check, both good tips.  I also am looking at drinking some Cascade, Boneyard, Lagsdon Farmhouse Ales, Fremont, Black Raven Block 15, Oakshire, and Ale Apothecary.  But not in that order.  I'm hoping there will be some dregs left over from Seattle Beer Week which ends Sunday.   Russian River would be nice.
