Beers at the Bottom has some exciting news.
Fall is upon us. Think crisp red fallen leaves, think sweaters. Think of fall seasonal beer--because autumn is a great time for beer. This is a transitional phase from the crisp sessionable summer ales to winter warmers, seen best of all in varieties like Marzen. These lagers have a denser malt characteristic and higher ABV than their summer cousins. Beer lovers also enjoy this time of year because Oktoberfest celebrations bring together food, music, and of course beer. New festivals seems to pop up each year, and established festivals just keep growing. We at Beers at the Bottom want to highlight one of these beer celebrations that is near and dear to our pint glasses.
From the press release:
Sept. 20 through Sept. 29, 2013, is a very good time to be a craft beer lover in Bellingham, Wash., as it hosts the second annual Bellingham Beer Week (BBW). This 10-day celebration of craft beer is a time to salute the many fantastic breweries, beer bars and beer stores that serve the Bellingham area, and it’s also an opportunity for these establishments to return the nod to their loyal, beer-loving patrons.
A wide variety of daily events are planned for this year’s Bellingham Beer Week. To kick off the festivities, Boundary Bay Brewery, Chuckanut Brewery and Kulshan Brewery have joined forces to create a collaboration beer, which will be canned at the Kulshan Brewery in Bellingham on Friday, Sept. 20 as a public event. This and many other special-release beers will be highlighted throughout the week.
