Stoup Brewing opened last month in Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood, founded by two self-proclaimed “science nerds and a food connoisseur.” We stopped by one dark and wintry afternoon last week to check it out.
It’s official. Churchkey is the summer beer of the Seattle Foodshed. This light, easy-drinking pilsner has a lot going for it – A Seattle-Portland pedigree, a low alcohol content for summer sipping, and some pretty unique (new school/old school) packaging.
Back in Brussels, after a perfect day spent in the picturesque city of Bruges, it’s time for one last night out before heading home to Seattle. The Delirium Cafe (short for delirium trements, and I’m beginning to see why) is a well-known and popular spot for beer, absinthe and cocktails.
Imagine walking the snowy streets of Brussels, and then popping in to warm up with a bowl of onion soup with Magritte and his fellow surrealism scenesters. The pub was a favorite meeting place for the early surrealism scene, and photos in the restaurant show some of its famous patrons. What does it look like inside?
This old neighborhood in Brussels is full of charming shops and buildings. Does Marche aux Porcs mean a good deal on pigs? It seems like it would…
Foodshed is on the road! We’re in Port Townsend, Washington, at Sirens, a bar housed in old town, overlooking the water. The beer: Port Townsend brewing IPA. It was hoppy (of course) with almost a lemony taste as well.
