Seattle’s Hop Scotch Spring Beer & Scotch Festival

Hop Scotch Spring Beer & Scotch Festival is the premier beer, Scotch, wine and spirit tasting experience benefiting Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF). On March 30 and 31, Fremont Studios transforms into a swanky beverage tasting lounge featuring over 80 libations to swirl, sniff and sip.

The unique festival allows guests to exchange lingo one-on-one with beverage experts as they discover their sense of taste and channel their inner Mad Men-inspired style during the two-day event.

General Admission to Hop Scotch is $30 ($25 in advance) and includes tokens to sample beer including some of the first microbrew of the season, and spring-release wine from Small Lot Co-ops’ boutique Washington wineries. Guests can also purchase full bottles of Heineken beer and lounge in the Green Room.

For those stoked about spirits, Scotch samplers may be purchased. “The spirit sampler allows guests to experience another craft malt beverage,” says Phil Megenhardt, Event Producer. The Spirit Samplers include a self-guided flight of ¼ oz. tastes of select Scotch. In both experiences experts will be on hand to answer questions.

For guests looking for more in depth knowledge of Scotch, hour-long seminars take participants through the complete range of taste experiences, which includes samples of single malts, blends and vatted whiskies to sniff and sip for only $30.

Hop Scotch Spring Beer & Scotch Festival is a benefit for SIFF whose mission is to create experiences that bring people together to discover extraordinary films from around the world. It is through the art of cinema that we foster a community that is more informed, aware, and alive. The 38th annual Seattle International Film Festival dates are May 17th – June 10th.
