Saraveza 5th Annual IIPA Fest

One of our favorite beer festivals that celebrates the excessive use of hops is Saraveza’s IIPA Festival. Now in its fifth year, this years event will take place on Saturday, August 16th from 1:00pm to 10:00pm and Sunday, August 17th from 1:00pm to 8:00pm at Saraveza & The Bad Habit Room. There will be well over 30 Imperial IPA’s that will satisfy any hophead out there and tickets are now on sale here.

Featuring over 30 rotating Imperial IPAs, Double Bacon BLTs, a new table dedicated to firkins, a Berliner Weisse Oasis & live music, the 5th Annual IIPA Festival will take place at Saraveza, Bottle Shop & Pasty Tavern and neighboring Bad Habit Room on Saturday and Sunday, August 16th & 17th.Saraveza

Festival goers will have the opportunity to try unique IIPA Fest beers made by Block 15, Base Camp Brewing Co, Coalition, Gigantic, Solera and more! This year also boasts the release of “Freaky Nasty”, an Imperial IPA brewed by the Saraveza crew with Breakside Brewery especially for the Fest! The draft list also includes classics like Hopworks “Ace of Spades” , 10 Barrel “DUB”,  Avery “Maharaja”, Dogfish Head “120 Minute” & Goodlife “Comatose”.

Saraveza is bringing back their porklicious BBLT’s. Why not double up the bacon that Saraveza is so well known for? Then to add something for your sweet tooth Saraveza will also be serving up some special Berliner Weisse sorbet cones. Is there a better way to cleanse your palate on a nice summer afternoon?

Once again this year live music will be on the schedule featuring music from NW talents of Carinne Carpenter, Flat Rock Stringband, and Ryan McAlexander.
