From Macklemore To The Seahawks… It’s Time To Celebrate Seattle
(Seattle, WA) February 3, 2014 – Seattle has caught the attention of the entire nation. Macklemore’s chart topping anthems and the Seahawks Super Bowl season has the city and the region experiencing a Renaissance of local flavor. Local breweries, distilleries, and food trucks have exploded off of the local scene and into national prominence. With so much going right in the city, it’s fitting that the 12th annual Hop Scotch Spring Beer & Scotch festival honor’s it’s Seattle roots and showcases the local flavors.
While the Seattle beer scene has been prominent since the early 90s, the last ten years has established the city as a beer lover’s haven. New breweries continue to pop up seemingly daily throughout Ballard, SODO, Fremont, and surrounding neighborhoods, making Seattle one of the country’s largest concentrations of breweries. Riding off of the success of local brewers, the last couple of years have seen the rise of local distilleries. Both breweries and distilleries use the abundance of quality in-state ingredients to create top of the line products. Hop Scotch uses the accessibility of these products to showcase the best of the Seattle brewing and distilling scenes in one room.
The newest local trend is also the fastest rising trend. Food trucks are making Seattle’s foodie identity available to the entire city. The city’s most unique flavors are coming out of mobile kitchens the size of most restaurants walk in fridges. Hop Scotch is bringing one of the Seattle’s most creative mobile kitchens, Lumpia World, to be the taste of the festival.
