Seattle Beer Week at Shultzy's


We're excited about the first annual Seattle Beer Week. Seattle's a beer-loving city, and we now have a week to celebrate just that, and Shultzy's is proud to be a sponsor.

In fact, we'll be hosting a special event on Wednesday, March 13th
Our own master sausagemaker, Don Schulze will be making hopwurst, sausages made with the same hops used to make your favorite beers. We're currently planning on making one mild hopwurst and one spicy hopwurst ("Hop Italian"?).

Beers? Oh yes, we'll have beers, many of them at Shultzy's for the first time ever. Here's our tentative beer lineup for the event:

Bayern Doppelbock or Maibock (Missoula, MT)
Hacker-Pschorr Weisse (Germany)
Hoegaarden Witbier (Belgium)
Kostritzer Black Beer (Germany)
Left Hand Oak-Aged Imperial Stout (Longmont, CO)
Maredsous 6 Blonde Ale (Belgium)
Ommegang Hennepin Saison (Cooperstown, NY)
Pike Double IPA (Seattle, WA -- Brewed especially for Seattle Beer Week)
Veltins Pilsener (Germany)

Mike Baker, beer guru, co-creator of Seattle Beer Week and Friend of Shultzy's will be matching each of these beers with a sausage, and we'll have a special menu to let you taste several pairings. And, even though it's not Oktoberfest, there are already reports that there will be lederhosen and dirndls present, so come join us for a fun evening.
