I don’t really understand why there is such a thing as Seattle Beer Week. It seems to me that there is something craft beer related going on somewhere pretty much every day around Seattle what with tap takeovers and brewer’s nights or a festival or two on ANY given week.
But the folks who want to promote craft beer – primarily to those people who have not made it their ultimate beverage of choice – think they need a series of events to draw newbies into the fold or spread some hype to get people from around the country to plan a trip out here. Even so, many of the events are featuring beers that are not only not from Seattle, but not from Washington either. Hmmm.
