Imagine a city where every bar, bottle shop, restaurant, and other kind of venue you can possibly think of is full of good beer. Brewers from Belgium, England, Germany, and California offer you their best lagers and ales and tell you how they came to be. Miniature golf, skee-ball, and multicourse meals alike come paired with good beers, and adults can responsibly drink beer while walking from one place to another instead of being enclosed behind chain-link fences, and the giant hole that's been dug at great taxpayer expense at the heart of the city—the hole that is sitting totally empty and will be for the next year, if not forever—inexplicably provides the perfect combination of temperature control, wild yeasts, and enclosed space to spontaneously ferment the best sour ale ever made in Washington State.
