When the first big temperature spike of the year hits the upper left, Seattleites are quick to sport shorts, sandals and open up sunroofs. It's also time for patio happy hours and backyard BBQs, and with that comes the love of sunshine sipping.  Here are my picks:


Sun Glitter Peach IPA - Silver City Brewery, Bremerton

Special cask Wednesday at the Taproom tomorrow, featuring Sun Glitter Peach IPA -- Pint glass included with purchase of a pint of cask beer!

We know the rain will return (it always does), but for now, put on your shades, kick your feet up and bask in the sunshine with some tasty beers this week, Rockaholics! We have plenty to choose from in this great corner of the world. Cheers!


Happy Adventuring,
