Hilliard’s Brewery (1550 NW 49th St) will play host the final lecture in the Seattle Architecture Foundation‘s (SAF) Urban Character Series on Tuesday evening, and a discussion on microbreweries in the neighborhood will be on tap.

Five guest speakers (Adam Robbings, Co-Founder & Head Brewer, Reuben’s Brews; Washington Beer Blog’s Kendall Jones; Renee Martin of the Ballard Historical Society; Mike Calkins of Mint Seattle Design; and David Goldberg, Senior Planner, City of Seattle DPDwill be on hand to discuss how Ballard has changed with the surge of microbreweries, and how they’ve shaped the neighborhood’s culture. As noted in the event description:

Beer has always flowed in Seattle, but in recent times, this drink has enjoyed a surge in popularity, with the Ballard neighborhood as the latest epicenter of new microbreweries. How has this micro-industry re-appropriated the neighborhood and shaped its community culture. What challenges and design issues arose during the rehabilitation of Ballard’s old buildings into breweries?

The lecture will begin at 6:30 p.m., with doors opening at 5:30 p.m. for a pre-event happy hour featuring Tasty Kraut samples from OlyKraut, and light snacks included in the price of admission. Brews from Hilliard’s will also be available for purchase.

Tickets for the lecture are $10 for SAF members, $15 in advance for non-SAF members, and $20 at the door, and can be purchased here.

    I’m not sure exactly why but this weblog is loading incredibly slow for me.
    Is anyone else having this problem or is it a issue on my end?
    I’ll check back later and see if the problem still exists.
