    …Oh, haven’t you heard of Big Time Brewing Company?  Well then, let us enlighten you with this from the boys up north, themselves…

    “The Big Time is the oldest brewpub in Washington State having opened its doors on December 7th, 1988.  Drew Cluley is the 5th head brewer to take the helm on the brew deck at the Big Time having moved over from Pike Brewing Company in April 2011.  The Big Time is celebrating 24 years of serving quality craft beer to beer aficionados in the University District of Seattle. “

    We, at Saraveza, are stoked to have these folks in the house during a very special trip, and an evening of what’s sure to have many laughs and a good time! Cheers, everybody!


• “Wheatapaug Groove” - A hoppy American wheat ale with lots of Cascade, Chinook and Amarillo hops. The addition of orange juice concentrate to the boil adds to the citrusy goodness of this beer.
    Original gravity 1.054; Terminal gravity 1.012, 5.5% abv

• “Whiny the Complainer” - A delicious triple India Pale Ale that features an abundant amount of bitterness, hop flavor and aroma from over 3 lbs of hops per barrel.  Hops include, Cascade; Centennial, Chinook; Columbus; Magnum; Amarillo; and Simcoe.  WtC was dry hopped with Nelson Sauvin hops from New Zealand. The name Whiny the Complainer was thought up by former head brewer Bill Jenkins – it is in homage to Russian River’s Pliny the Younger – and the patrons who whine because they missed out on their coveted few ounces of PtY.  Whiny was the 2,300th batch brewed at the Big Time since batch #1 was brewed on November 10th 1988.
  Original gravity 1.088; Terminal gravity 1.019; 9.1% abv
