Hike with brewers in Seattle!



Hike with Brewers in the Seattle area
Beers Made By Walking, a program that invites brewers to make beer inspired by plants on nature hikes, is teaming up with the Friends of the Cedar River Watershed in Seattle. Together we have created a three-part series of summer hikes with local breweries. The first hike will be on June 18th at Seward Park and will be attended by Brickyard Brewing and Epic Ales. The second hike will be in Discover Park on July 22nd and will be attended by Naked City Brewery and Fremont Brewing.

In addition to learning about water issues in the region, hikers will learn about the edible and medicinal plants that grow along the trail. These plants will inspire a series of beers that will serve as drinkable, landscape portraits of the trails that we walk. In the Fall, these beers will be available to the public and will serve as a fundraiser for the Friends of the Cedar River Watershed.

Hikes are free and open to the public, but registration is required. You can follow the Facebook Event Page for Seattle Area Beers Made By Walking Hikes to receive updates about hikes, beers, and more.
