: Coming Sooooooooooooon (and by soon, I mean probably in late July)
Washington State has almost 200 craft breweries, many with small-scale artisan brews that you're not going to find anywhere else in the world. Seattle is truly Beer Geek Heaven. The SchlitzKrieg is a beer tour for locals and out-of-towners alike, and focused on tiny up and coming nano-breweries that you probably won't find in the store. Throw in a little local history, an interesting scenic ride, and you've got a great way to spend a day outside of the Convention Center, where you can see more of the city than just the downtown.

was the first ever SchlitzKrieg at PAX Prime, where 30 Beer Geeks were loaded onto a big yellow bus and we toured 12 local craft breweries in the greater Seattle Area in 12 hours. You can check out that year's thread here

from the first year here
was a Cycle Saloon tour around the breweries in the Seattle neighborhood of Ballard. It was fun but too much work.
was a little strange, as we didn't get enough people to fill up a full bus so we all crammed into a van and a car. It wasn't terrifically comfortable.
was the year we got a motherfucking party bus, bitches!
was our Fifth Annual Schlitzkrieg, where we headed South and threw in some cideries and distilleries to mix up the beer a bit. Also, party bus.
we didn’t get enough people for the party bus, so this was a walking tour.
Depending on how many people we get we may get the badass party bus. If not then there are other options.
22 – 27 people
= Party Bus with a driver and a banquet permit so you can drink on the bus. AND there's a gaming laptop hookup to the video screens on the bus so we can play while we're traveling again. It's seriously an amazing time.
10 – 21 people
= We may be able to get a party bus with a driver, but it may be more expensive…
~ 10 people
= Jobiwan Kenobi will be your designated driver… we will get a rental van that can accommodate this group comfortably.
The route is still TDB, but I am leaning towards either heading towards the south sound which would have a good mix of breweries, cideries, meaderies, and distilleries or heading east across the mountains on an ambitious and scenic route that would mainly visit breweries (oh and a fake Bavarian town).
Assuming that we will get the party bus, tickets will be around $100 per person. However, if I am your designated driver prices should drop and there would be a refund at the start of the trip.
