Seattle is famous for its breweries, and every year one brewery is chosen to present the official beer of the Seattle Beer Week. The festival is filled with exciting events, such as the beer can derby race, hop vaping, the Stout and Sour Fests, and Women in Beer. The SBW Fun Run—a non-competitive mostly down-hill race through downtown—takes place annually. Fun prizes await participants at the finish, and, of course, refreshing beers will be on draft at each stop of the race.

West Coast Pilsner Party (May 17, 2024)

Seattle Beer Week is kicked off on May 17 with the West Coast Pilsner Party, running from 5 to 11 pm at Full Throttle Bottles. West Coast Pilsners dominate the evening, full of music and fun. Steeplejack Brewing Company will release their New Faces, and DJ Lupulin and DJ Big Tim Slade will spin their turntables for the enjoyment of the crowds.

SOS Pro Wrestling (May 17, 2024)

Another anticipated event is SOS Pro Wrestling at Old Stove Brewing- Ship Canal, which will take place from 6:30 to 10 pm on May 17. Ship Canal is transformed into a wrestling arena with some real action, like chair busting, door breaking, and cheering crowds, heard miles away.

Mango Tango Festival (May 18, 2024)

Saturday, May 18, is the most important day of the Beer Week. From noon to 5 pm, beer fans can attend the Mango Tango Festival at Bale Breaker x Yonder Cider Taproom in Ballard. The annual Fiesta celebrates the migrant workers who harvest hops, essential for beer making. The brewery also presents the Sesiones Del Migrante Mango Tango Summer Ale. A share of proceeds from the sales goes to Yakima nonprofits, which support migrant workers.

Stour Fest (May 18, 2024)

Stour Fest is one of the highlights of 2024 Beer Week. Running from noon to 10 pm at Brouwer's Cafe, Stour Fest is a blend of two annual Beer Week festivals, Back in Black Stout Fest and Sour Fest. As for the sour lineup, the fest will feature the Tilquin Fruit Extravaganza, a Belgian lambic beer made in Brussels. Overall, more than 40 draft beers will be available—20 sours and 20 stouts, many of them unique and rare.

Pine Box Beer Can Derby (May 19, 2024)

Pine Box Beer Can Derby will run at The Pine Box from 3 to 6 pm. Anyone can come and try racing cans cub scout style down the tracks. The event starts at 3 pm with participants purchasing canned beer and a race kit. The race itself will set off at 5 pm. The most adventurous participants will get prizes: for the first, second, third place and for the most attractive car.

Festival's History

Seattle Beer Week (SBW) was initiated in 2008 to showcase breweries, beer bars, restaurants, and distributors in the greater Seattle area. The event has become popular soon, not surprisingly. After all, Seattle is one of the greatest beer cities on the West Coast!
