Tasting Tonight!

It's rare that I'm able to attend these events as I am typically on dad duty mid-week but I have a guest flying into town tonight from Sun Valley Idaho and they just don't get the variety of great beers that we have available in Seattle (although he makes up for it by skiing a world class mountain all the time...bastard).

Anyhoo, Anderson Valley will be in the store tonight and we have a surprise mix of one-off kegs to sample, plus one of their beers in a can to be revealed later... 

More good stuff on tap right now with a white lambic and a killer barelywine from 21st Amendment Brewing.

See you in the LCDub!

Back for more winter!

After a little hiatus spent in the warm bask of the Hawaiian sun, follwed by a little trek to Austin TX I'm back to the gloom and grey of Seattle!  It's the perfect weather for drinking beer and quite frankly I had my fill of Mai Thai's. 

Anyhoo, we have some fantastic new beers in the store, including some tasty ones from Lost Abbey, the Firestone Walker Sucaba (4 bottle limit per person), and some interesting beers from Dogfish Head.  Up next on tap we have some barley wines to warm you up from the rainy weather.

An update on the Retro Board Game nights.  The next night is March 10th.  Last time Burc and Renna played a tightly contested battle with a tie in Go Fish, but Burc was the victor in the end with a decisive game of Candyland.

So...come on down and drink some beer!!

Until next time...

Superbowl at the Beer Authority!!

Damn it we have a good day lined up on Sunday!!  If you haven't heard yet, we're having a good old fashion potluck on Sunday for the Superbowl festivities.  I have no idea what items might make it in but if they are made with the same passion our patrons have to drinking great beer I have no doubt it will be worth stopping by for!  Also, as I have mentioned before my very awesome award winning (really!) chili will be piping hot in a crock pot.

We will be offering draft beer specials all day so come on down!!

Next up we have a brewers night on February 8th with 7 Seas and they never dissapoint with their beers. 

Lots of great beers on tap right now as well and the store has been hopping lately so come enjoy the good beer good times!

Hardly!  But a little cold and snow shouldn't keep you all from enjoying a nice frothy beer and we've got some good ones on right now (ok, when DON'T we have good ones on?)  I'm sipping a Port Royal Foreign Extra Stout from 7 Seas as I type this and it's very tasty!  Also new on tap is the Red Barn Ale from Lost Abbey, and Brrrbon Winter Ale from Windmer.

After watching the inevitable end of the Tim Tebow farce, made to look like the high school running back he is suddenly thrust into the role of leading his team, I'm ready for two really good football games this upcoming weeknd for the AFC and NFC title games.  As always we will have them on so come on down!

Whoever makes it into the Superbowl, you can bet the Beer Authority will be a great place to watch.  Not only will we have great beer to help you watch the lame Superbowl commercials, but my world famous chili will be making a long anticipated return for the game.  Get some early cause it surely won't last!

In other news, congrats to Brian "BMW" Wannberg who won the Retro Boardgame Night last night!  Brian now moves on to the Tournament of Champions which so far just includes Breezy.  Next Retro Boardgame Night will be February 19th during President's Day Weekend.  Sign up is at 5:00 PM with the competition starting at 5:30 PM.  It's single elimnation with random drawing for the game selection.  Who's going to step up and challenge them?


Next Tuesday please stop by and welcome Elliot Brewing to the neighborhood from 6-8.  We will be featuring three of their beers on tap and we're really excited to have them in the LC-DUB!

February 8th we welcome 7 Seas Brewing for a tasting.
