Seattle Made Tour & Tasting
Fri, Oct 15 from 5pm - 8pm
- 21+, Covid Vaccination Required
Join us during Seattle Made Week to sip and tour the production facilities of some of your favorite locally produced drinks!
We'll start at Rooftop Brewing's event space and move from there in groups of 15 to tour and sample from Ladro Roasting, Rooftop Brewing, and Fast Penny Spirits. Ladro Roasting and Rooftop Brewing share a production space and Fast Penny Spirits are just around the corner!
Tours at each production facility will last 20 minutes and will include a sample of two drinks. Between tours, we will meet at the Rooftop Brewing event space to reconnect before the next tour and sample offerings from more Seattle Made members.
Sampling from Seattle Made members include: Honest Biscuit, Firefly Kitchens, Elsom Cellars, Seattle Sorbets, Marination, and Fuse Sauces!
Rooftop Brewing event space bar and fast Penny Spirits bottle shop will both be open for cash/card bar service throughout the event.
Rooftop Brewing is a Seattle-based craft brewery, founded in 2012 and open to the public for the first time in 2013. They make small-batch, artisan beers emphasizing quality, approachability, and just a little bit of whimsy. They have fun with their brews, making beer that is meant to be enjoyed surrounded by friends and fresh air.
Now a Seattle coffee institution, Caffe Ladro opened its first location on Upper Queen Anne in 1994. People often ask about the company name origin. Caffe Ladro is Italian for coffee thief. When they opened up right next to Starbucks, they intended to pinch their customers with the best Seattle coffee and staff they could find.
In 2000, Caffe Ladro was the largest chain in the country, serving only Fair Trade coffee in their cafes. Later, in 2011, they launched Ladro Roasting. The division of the company sources green coffees through relationships with coffee farmers and millers. It also roasts all the coffee it purchases at their Seattle coffee roastery (which you'll get to see on your tour!)
Fast Penny Spirits
