The 2017 Seattle edition of Beers Made By Walking (BMBW) has announced its beer list for its October 7th event at Naked City Brewery & Taphouse from 1:00-5:00pm. Throughout the year BMBW worked with 10 local Washington breweries each to create a beer inspired by local plants on hikes the brewers trekked over the summer organized by Washington Wild. Each beer is a unique, drinkable portrait of the landscape.
Here’s what to expect on tap at the Seattle event.
