SMALL SEATTLE BREWERIES UNITE FOR MINI BEER FESTIVAL
Laughing Buddha to Host Fellow Breweries
SEATTLE, WA – Four of Seattle’s smallest breweries have announced that they will hold a mini beer festival on Saturday, August 23, 2008 in South Seattle. Laughing Buddha will host Baron Brewing, Schooner Exact, and Two Beers Brewing in their newly expanded brewery space. Craft beer drinkers are invited to stop by and sample beer from all four breweries.
“We thought we should have a special event before we start filling up the space with equipment,” said Chris Castillo, co-owner of Laughing Buddha, a new Seattle microbrewery focusing on Asian fusion beers. The brewery tripled their lease space on July 1, 2008 in the South 93rd Business Park to support its current growth in production.
Baron Brewing is located in the same industrial complex in the South Park district of Seattle. Schooner Exact and Two Beers Brewing are both small-batch breweries that produce half a barrel of beer at a time.
“We met Schooner Exact and Two Beers for the first time at this year’s Washington Brewers Festival,” Castillo said. “It’s going to be fun having our neighbor and new friends over to pour beer.”
The mini beer festival will be held on August 23, 2008 from 3pm to 7pm at 9320 15th Ave S, Unit CE2, Seattle, WA, 98108. Attendees can pre-register at http://beerfest.eventbrite.com.
Laughing Buddha, brewers of modern Asian-style beers, began producing its first batches in the South Park district of Seattle in 2007. Their beers include Dragon King Lager, Pandan Brown Ale, Ginger Pale Ale, and Mango Weizen. For more information, visit www.laughingbuddhabeer.com.
