Cozy Up Community Potlucks

Date: Sunday, November 24, 2019 - Sunday, March 29, 2020|3:00PM - 6:00PM

Location: Flying Lion Brewery

Grab your Pyrex and Crock Pots, it's potluck time! From November to March, on the last Sunday of each month, we will be hosting a community potluck at the brewery. What better way to cope with the winter blues than with food, friends and brews. And to warm it up even more, a portion of sales during the potluck will be donated to a South Seattle charity. Come and cozy up with food and friends for a good cause!

Each month will have a different theme so we can keep our creative cooking juices flowing. Plates, utensils and power outlets will be provided. All you need to bring is something to share and a healthy appetite! The potlucking will run from 3 - 6pm.

Check out the Facebook Event page for this month's theme and charity!

6th Annual Dark Beer Fest

Date: Friday, December 20, 2019 - Sunday, December 22, 2019|10:00AM - 12:00AM

Location: Flying Lion Brewing

During the darkest time of year...comes a celebration with the darkest of beers.

Dark Beer Fest started at Flying Lion Brewing in 2014. We've grown from our modest 6-beer list to a full 30+ beer, 3-day event complete with cellared favorites, special releases, and plenty of limited availability brews. We're talking all dark beer, all three days. If you haven't been, you're missing out. We plot and plan all year long and now we have a cold room full of dark beers. It's perfect if you like your beer to match the sky at 5pm. Mark your calendars - we think the only reason you should travel this December is if you're coming here!

New this year - we are opening at 10AM each day! Many of the beers are limited and may only last one day so come early and get that special dark beer you've been waiting for. Admission is FREE and we are a family friendly brewery.
