East Ballard Parade O’ Pints

March 17, 2018

Lucky Envelope Brewing, Obec Brewing, Populuxe Brewing, Reuben’s Brews and Stoup Brewing are excited to announce the first annual St. Pat’s Parade O’ Pints, a neighborhood celebration of St. Patrick’s day featuring specialty beers, commemorative glassware, t-shirts, food trucks, live entertainment, & fun!

While not literally a parade, these breweries invite revelers to enjoy unique festivities at each of the five tap rooms in the Gilman Park Neighborhood. All five breweries will have commemorative pint glasses and t-shirts available for sale. Individual activities range from Seattle Firefighter’s Pipes & Drums at Stoup Brewing to Irish Karaoke at Populuxe. Here’s the complete list of offerings at each location:


Lucky Envelope Brewing

Beers: Irish Lager – 5.1% ABV – Irish lager brewed with Skagit Valley Malting Talisman malt and flaked corn. The beer has a toasty, slightly roasty malt flavor from the heirloom UK-based malt. Corn adjunct lends a clean crisp finish.

Irish Red Ale – 5.5% ABV – A velvety smooth and highly-drinkable Irish-style red ale. It is malt-forward with toasted bread notes with a light chocolate finish.

Food Truck: SoSo Good


Obec Brewing

Beer: Dry Irish Stout – Our dry Irish stout has a soft, smooth body and a full roasted barley nose. Light caramel and coffee favors give way to a subtle smoked and roasted malt character. It clocks in at a sessionable 4.2% ABV, perfect for lively debates over the merits of Beckett’s use of long run-on sentences.

Food Truck: BAKED! Fully loaded baked potatoes


Populuxe Brewing

BeerSoda Bread Stout – 4.5% ABV, 30 IBU – Dark and roasty, with creamy chocolate and coffee notes, this is a classic example of a Dry Irish Stout.  Brewed to traditional session strength and served on nitro for an easy drinking, deceptively light beer in spite of it’s full-bodied nature. Get a taste of the Emerald Isle right here in the Emerald City!

Food TruckPeasant Food Manifesto featuring Irish Tacos made with corn beef and cabbage.

Entertainment: Live music by husband and wife duo, The Blaas 4-5:30 pm. They will play an acoustic mix of  of Irish tunes – reels, jigs, polkas, and waltz followed by:

Baby Ketten Karaoke the Celtic Way 7pm – 11pm–  $1/beers for any singer who performs a song by an artist of Irish descent (i.e. Sinead O’Connor, Shane McGowan, the Cranberries – no Enya please).


Reuben’s Brews

BeersNitro Dry Stout -This quintessential Irish style uses a dark, roasty malt to give a relatively bitter and dry finish. The nitro pour provides a nice creaminess to the taste. 

Irish Blood English Heart – This beer derives its name from a much beloved song by a musician who was born in England to Irish parents. This beer uses an Irish yeast strain, which provides bright, fruity notes on an English Brown malt bill. The result is a delicious, drinkable brown ale. 

Irish Red – This deep reddish Amber provides the perfect balance between the caramel malts, fruity Irish yeast, and bitterness. 

Food Truck:  Cheese Wizards

Entertainment: (ALL DAY): We will have the back of the brewery open, so there will plenty of space to enjoy your beers out back with some upbeat, fun Irish music playing. 


Stoup Brewing

BeerExtra Loud Stout – 4.7% ABV 36 IBU – Roasted Barley gives this highly quaffable, dark brew its distinctive flavor and dry finish. The beer is balanced with a hint of bittersweet chocolate and a rich, smooth creaminess from oat malt and a nitrogen pour.

Food TruckNapkin Friends serving up corned beef & cabbage between two latkes

EntertainmentSeattle Firefighter’s Pipes & Drums, the beer’s namesake, will be playing in the tap room from 5-6pm.
