A brewery, like the beach, is a relaxing oasis that allows tired travelers to bask in golden hues, frolic in frothy spumes, and get in splash fights with siblings. Savor brewers’ foamy yields with today’s Groupon: for $38, you get an admission package to Explore Your Craft: Seattle, a beer-and-small-plates pairing sponsored by Widmer Brothers Brewing and Draft Magazine, held at Sodo Park on Saturday, November 19, at 6 p.m. (a $94.99 total value). The package includes the following:
- Admission for one to Explore Your Craft: Seattle (a $75 value)
- One-year subscription to Draft Magazine (a $19.99 value)<p>
Draft Magazine and Portland’s Widmer Brothers Brewing unite to unleash Explore Your Craft: Seattle, an evening-long fiesta of beer, gourmet cooking, music, and visual arts. Epicures pair finely crafted pours with a menu of beer-paired small plates and suds bibs whose value increases as the night goes on. Live music, an interactive art project, and on-site painting demonstrations also enliven the stately venue, much as a subplot involving superintelligent sharks enlivens a Charles Dickens novel. Widmer Brothers’ cofounder Rob Widmer will also be on hand to dispense his inner keg of beer lore, and each ticket holder leaves the festivities with a souvenir glass. Additionally, a one-year subscription to Draft Magazine entertains beer guzzlers with brew-infused recipes, a list of lager hot-spot locations, and malted-grain scratch-and-sniff cards.
