Every year, the Beveridge Place Pub down in Seattle turns October into Hoptoberfest. They feature around 12 Washington State IPAs that rotate through their taps and customers get a chance to vote on which IPA they want on tap EVERY SINGLE DAY at Beveridge Place Pub in 2012.
At the beginning of the month, you can nominate any Washington-brewed IPA, but by mid-October the voting gets whittled down to the top eight nominees. To vote, you must head to the Beveridge Place Pub and order a pint of IPA. You then get a ballot and can vote once a day…repeating throughout month as often as possible! From October 15th – 24th, customers vote for which three, among the top eight, will advance to the final round. After that, a general election ballot with the top three will be provided for voters until November 1st.
We’ve won the most customer votes four out of the five years that we’ve been a part of Hoptoberfest and have loved being the house IPA at Beveridge Place Pub! We’re hoping to retain our title as reigning champ and bring lots of BBAY IPA love to Seattlites through 2012 too. And we need your help! If you’re already in the Seattle area, go to the Beveridge Place Pub as often as your spouse or wallet allows (which is no hardship, we’re sure!) and vote for Boundary Bay Brewery when you get your ballot. However, if you’re not in the neighborhood, why not plan a road tripping to Seattle when we do!?! We’re planning a Brewers Night at the Beveridge Place Pub on Monday, October 24th…and we’re hoping to have a whole crowd of BBAY fans show up too.
The festivities will start, officially, around 5pm. But we’ll probably show up a little early to rub elbows with the regulars, so swing by if you manage to wriggle out of work a little early. There’ll be special treats (like our beloved Mac N Cheese and locally made pretzels from Ralf’s Bavarian Pretzels), raffle prizes and $3 pints during the brewers night, so come join the fun! If you know anything about last year’s Boundary Bay Brewers Night, you KNOW this is an evening not to be missed. Cheers!
