Hopscotch, Schwartz Kölsch, Seahawks Randall

It’s a big weekend in the CD, folks. Saturday from 9am-6pm will be the second annual Hopscotch CD! I know, I know, you might be too proud to be seen hopscotching around the neighborhood for almost 3 miles, but you should see all the events. Look here for the route and things to do. It has even grown since the map was made, and it seems like this event is turning into a bit of a festival, bringing the whole neighborhood out to mingle, eat, drink, get some exercise, shop rummage sales, listen to music, and on and on. To celebrate, we’ll be opening up at noon and running happy hour until 6pm.

HOWEVER, before we get to Saturday, let us deal with tonight. Fresh hop season is upon us! Our estate grown, organic, grain fed, local, fair trade, small batch crop is beginning to mature and we are ready to begin applying them to beer. The first hops ready for pickin’ are Willamette, Northern Brewer and Hallertau. I’ll be picking an artistic melange of fresh hops tonight and stuffing them in the randall with some lavendar, and we’ll be running the Summer Wheat Saison through it. It will be delicious, so come indulge while we cheer on the Seahawks against the Bears in preseason game #3. Game time is at 7pm. We will be open until the game ends!

Lastly, you’ve had Kölsch, but have you ever a Schwartz Kölsch??? We added enough Carafa to our Kölsch recipe to get it nice and dark, and applied German Hallertau hops all the way through to give the beer a floral influence. The Kölsch yeast gives it that crisp, clean finish you’d expect. While not technically a real style, we think it’s a great way to drink a dark beer on a warm day. Come enjoy one after you try the randall.
