If you’ve ever dreamed of having all of Ballard’s breweries available under one roof, here’s your chance: the Ballard Brewed Winter Beer Festival is on Saturday, Nov. 3, during which all 11 of Ballard’s breweries will come together at Hale’s Palladium to raise money for Bellwether Housing, Seattle’s largest nonprofit affordable housing provider.
Each of the breweries — Bad Jimmy’s, Hales Ales Brewery, Lagunitas Brewing Company, Lucky Envelope Brewing, Maritime Pacific Brewing Company, NW Peaks Brewery, Obec Brewing, Peddler Brewing, Populuxe Brewing, Reuben’s Brews and Stoup Brewing — will bring two winter beers to the Ballard Brewed Winter Beer Festival, one of which will be released for the first time at the festival.
“We recognize that there is a great need for affordable housing in Seattle,” Mike Hale, owner/founder of Hale’s Ales Brewery said. “We know it will take resources to solve this problem, so we are coming together and doing what we do best to raise funds to build more homes for low-income families while having a fun and festive event.”
There will be live music from the Gus Clark Trio and Planet Fly, with the So So Good Food Truck and Big Mario’s Pizza on site.
The fundraiser will run from 2pm to 7pm at Hale’s (4301 Leary Way NW). Tickets are $30 advance/$35 at the door, which includes a tasting glass and 11 four-ounce pours.
