When we kicked off the month of July, Seattle Center was home to The Vera Project Presents Elysian Brewing’s Search Party. Hosted by Elysian Brewing with 100% of the event’s proceeds going towards The Vera Project, Search Party brought together four bands with over 40 beers from the host brewery and 13 other Pacific Northwest breweries.

Basically and extension to last year’s Elysian’s 20th Anniversary celebration, this year’s new event offered a similar lineup of great music and tasty beers. Performing at Search Party were The SonicsThe StrutsBlack Pistol Fire and Thunderpussy.

Then there was the beer. Beyond the plentiful amount of regular and rare Elysian Brewing beers pouring the Seattle brewer also invited a few other of its contemporaries. This list of guest breweries include pFriem, Ghostfish, Crucible, Two Beers, Jellyfish, Big Time, Wander, Double Mountain, Counterbalance, Flying Lion, Perihelion, Georgetown, and Schooner Exact.
