This Saturday, Oct. 6 is Ballard-based Hilliard’s Beer’s 1-year anniversary, so they’re throwing a party.
The anniversary party is from 12 p.m. to 1 a.m. They’ll be serving their signature tallboy cans of Amber, Blonde and Saison. Their draft line-up will include Chrome Satan, E.xtra S.pecial B.elgian, Nautical Reference Pale Ale and features the re-release of their Cast Iron Stout, according to Adam Merkl from the brewery. They’ll also have $4 pints of a barrel aged version of the Saison. “Only one keg will be available of the Saison so show up early for that one!,” writes Merkl.
Snout and Co. will be serving their Cuban fare in the parking lot starting at 4 p.m. In addition, Hilliard’s is this year’s beer sponsor for the Seattle Weekly’s REVERB Festival, so starting at 6 p.m., several bands will be playing, including Soul Senate, Brothers from Another, OC Notes, Julie C, Chocolate Chuck, Brain Fruit, and Mike DC. Wristbands are $15 and will get you into any venue that is part of the festival. (Full line-up here.)
