Day two of Seattle Beer Week began with a long day at work. Once again, gainful employment did its best to interfere with the enjoyment of beer. Mercifully this only lasted until about 5pm at which time we were free to make the short trip north of downtown to Toronado, in Seattle’s Ravenna neighborhood. We had been here a couple times before, and each previous visit was a bit magical in its own way.
The draw tonight was “Drake’s Pint Night”, a partial tap takeover where San Leandro, CA based Drake’s Brewing showcased eight of their beers. Our decision to hit this event was based mostly on this list of beers, as it included a couple IPAs, a couple sours, and a couple barrel-aged offerings. This sounded right up our alleys. So, without any further delay, let’s talk about some of the beers we tried!
