On Saturday, May 18th We’re Celebrating Hazies

Seattle Beer Week has returned—for the 15th time—and so has our annual Haze Fest. This Saturday, May 18th we’re dedicating the bulk of our tap lines to beers that are anything but clear! Enjoy a day of great music, delicious food, and of course tasty hazies at our Ballard Taproom. No tickets necessary, and all ages are welcome.

Doors open at 11:00 a.m. and to minimize lines we’ll have two beer pouring stations: 0ne at the main bar up front, and another in the back alley. Then, from 5 – 7:00 p.m. The Prospectors will perform a mix of funky covers and originals to keep the party going. Known for their ability to blend soul, funk, and rock, this local five-piece group delivers a memorable fusion of songs that will have everyone in the beer garden moving their feet. 


2024 Haze Fest Tap List

This year features an extremely strong lineup with 20 of our haziest beers. Expect several everyday favorites like Hazealicious and Crushable, a handful of new releases like the next beer in our experimental Puffs series, and plenty of fun infusions like Tea Time, a hazy double IPA infused with a citrusy Earl Grey blend. 

Alpenglow: New Zealand Edition – This hazy IPA series evolved from our Reuben’s Crush beers, with the same selection of malts and a different hop variety that is featured in the dry hop. 

Batch #2291 Fluffy IPA – The first release in our new experimental IPA series, this hazy beer is brewed with Simcoe, Mosaic, Citra, and Chinook and achieves its soft, fluffy character from a process called no boil.

Cinnamon Toast Crush – We added Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal to our fruity Galaxy Crush for a deliciously different twist on IPA.

Citra Wit – This Belgian-style Witbier refreshes your palate and quenches your thirst. Hazy and smooth with a hint of coriander spice and big notes of citrus from Citra hops.

Farm Team – Brewed to highlight the unique terroir of our region, Farm Team is a collaboration series between Reuben’s Brews, PCC Community Markets, and the great farmers of the Pacific Northwest. 

Fresh! Raspberry – Mega-juicy with a nice, tart finish, this red-hued release includes buckets of ripe raspberries with just a touch of vanilla for balance.

Galaxy Crush – Loaded with Southern Hemisphere Galaxy hops, this hazy IPA will have you marveling at the vast possibilities of flavor in the universe of beer.

Hazealicious – The tropical fruit notes, in particular passion fruit, that sit on a soft and pillowy body earned this beer a gold medal at the 2022 World Beer Cup. Restrained bitterness provides balance.

Hazy Cherry Pie – By infusing Hazealicious IPA with orange zest, vanilla, and grenadine, we created a fun beer that tastes like a slice of fruity pastry.

Hazy Skittlez – We took Alpenglow and infused it with some special ingredients to recreate the fruity, tangy flavor of the popular, lentil-shaped candy.

Hyperdrive – Make the jump to hyperspace with this hazy double IPA that’s loaded with Galaxy, Comet, Mosaic, and HBC 1019 hops. 

Lavender Haze – A truly experimental beer that combines dried lavender flowers with Reuben’s Crushable for an aromatic Pale Ale unlike anything you’ve tried before.

Pineapple Coconut Crush – A more tropical take on our Quad Crush imperial hazy, this infusion adds pineapple and coconut to the mix.

Puffs of Wonder – The latest in our experimental Puffs series of hazy IPAs features an innovative new hop product from Yakima Chief Hops & Yakima Chief Ranches.

Quad Crush – An even bigger version of our Reuben’s Triple Crush, this monster of a beer crams copious amounts of Citra hops into a lush and ludicrously juicy treat.

Reuben’s Crushable – An approachable, bright, and hazy pale ale that lives up to its name: easy drinking yet completely juicy with lush tropical fruit aromas.

Tea Time – Dosing our latest hazy double IPA with floral, citrusy Earl Grey blend yields a curiously delightful drink that is sure to tantalize tea lovers. 

Trail Magic – Pilsner, Vienna, and rye malt combine with two different hop varieties for a rustic, unfiltered lager with a dry finish and notes of spruce tips, grapefruit, and a hint of spice.

Tropical Funk – Hopped with Citra and Mosaic, Tropical Funk brings bold notes of guava, papaya, and pineapple along with a mild tartness, peppery spice, and some soft funkiness.

Zombie Crush – The addition of grapefruit juice, lime juice, grenadine, cinnamon, and barrel-aged bitters to Galaxy Crush creates this tiki-inspired brew.
