A Curated Music and Beer Experience at KEXP’s New Home at Seattle Center
KEXP is excited to host the Masonry’s Third Annual Farmhouse Beer Festival.

This is a unique opportunity to sample many of these rare brews in Seattle in the company of the brewers who make them, all while enjoying live sets by KEXP’s world class musical curators including DJ Reeves and DJ Larry Rose. Some of these beers rarely leave the taproom making this a “can’t miss” event for music and beer lovers alike.

What’s a “Farmhouse Ale”?
Farmhouse Ales are traditionally brewed in the winter, to be consumed throughout the summer months. Not long ago this method was close to extinction, but in recent years there has been a massive revival —especially in the US. This is a very complex brewing style; many of the offerings are very fruity in aroma and flavor. Look for earthy yeast tones, mild to moderate tartness, lots of spice, and medium bitterness. They tend to be semi-dry and many have only a touch of sweetness. Average alcohol by volume (abv) range: 5.0-8.0%
