    Hey everyone,

    I'm looking for the best newsletters, twitters, blogs, etc from breweries, bottle shops, taprooms, etc in WA. I'm new to the area so i would like to stay on top of releases, tappings, and events.

    Thnx and happy holidays!

    Thnx for the blogs guys i will definitely keep tabs on

    But what i'm really looking for is a brewery saying "this brew will be released at this date" or a taproom announcing "we will be having this brew on tap tomorrow or a bottle shop saying "we have this rare tomorrow.

    Brouwers updates their taplist daily. Uber updates more frequently than that. Everyone tweets. The Seattle beer scene very much embraces technology.

    Cascade -> ├╝ber
    Boneyard hop venom -> wurst place
    Pliny -> Brouwers & Bottleworks
    Georgetown -> beveridge place
    North sound -> Collins
    So watcha looking for?:)

  9. I really think that subscribing to various bars twitter feeds is the most effective way. Check facebooks too. When ever I am in Seattle, I just get on the Ubers, Brouwers, Pine Box, ect... social networking sites and I have always found something good on tap.
  10. for Vancouver, there is a facebook page called Vancouver Lupulin that does a good job of keep taps and bottle releases up to date

    Ahh, gotcha. Your best bet is to follow breweries and bars on FB, Twatter etc. But, honestly, we don't have any "rare" beers around in these parts. Discussed here: http://beeradvocate.com/community/threads/no-rare-beers-from-wa.16234/
