Seattle Beer Week 2024 kicks off this weekend

Seattle Beer Week runs Friday, May 17-Friday, May 24, offering specials + deals on pints, flights, and good vibes all around.

An iron beer flight tray holds four small pour glasses of different beers, varying in opacity and shades of brown. The top handle of the flight tray reads "Elysian" in capital letters made of iron. The markers for each beer name the brews from left to right: "White Magic," "Dayglow," "Cyclops," and "Daedalus."

In addition to bold beers, Elysian Brewing Co. also offers regular events + a wide variety of food options.

This weekend, Seattle Beer Week kicks off at local breweries, restaurants, and bars around Seattle. This celebration offers events, deals, and more to show off the city’s love for bold brews — we’ll cheers to that.

When it first launched in 2009, Seattle Beer Week was no more than a small group of events held at a few local establishments. Since then, it has expanded to over 200 events across 10 days of mug clinking and ale drinking.

Here are some spots serving up suds + hosting events for this year’s Seattle Beer Week:
