Elysian Brewing Company Capitol Hill
Fri., Aug. 4, 7-11 p.m. 2017
Celebrate the release of the newest beer in Elysian's Capitol Hill Series (a collection of new and old beers from the brewery's original Capitol Hill brewhouse) and the fourth to be released this year: Lenny Spruce, featuring "a shower of spruce tips and juniper berries that incite sensational aromas of pine, fruit and resinous notes to help bail out this brash outlaw with an outspoken Pacific Northwest woodsy flavor." There will be a ceremonial tapping of the beer and a toast from Capitol Hill Lead Brewer Hiawatha Rhyans, plus a performance from Wild Powwers, about whom Dave Segal once wrote, "This Seattle trio commingle nuanced grunge and psych-rock elements in songs that shimmy their way into your memory with breezy ease. The group’s melodic swagger is bolstered by the dulcet vocals of guitarist Lara Hilgemann and drummer Lupe Flores (one of the city’s best and busiest behind the kit), as their voices twine in lilting beams of aural sunshine." All proceeds from Lenny Spruce sales will go to the ACLU of Washington.
