We’re heading into the last few days of the Seattle Boat Show!  Friday night is the first ever “Sails & Ales” beer-tasting event, which sounds like a lot of fun:

What better combination than hops and props? That’s what the Seattle Boat Show has on tap for its first ever Sails & Ales Craft Beer Night, February 1st, at CenturyLink Field. For the first time in the show’s 66 year history, showgoers will be able to taste and toast the very best in craft beers while shopping for the boat of their dreams or wandering the three acres of accessories exhibits. Have a thirst for an ESB and a PWC, an Amber and Avalon Pontoon, or Lager and a Larson Runabout? Sails & Ales will serve up all of the above and more during this fun evening at the Seattle Boat Show. And if that weren’t enough to make for a fabulous evening, there’s also an aerial, acrobatic show to add to the mix.

Craft Beer Lineup

The Seattle Boat Show opens at 11am on February 1st, and Sails & Ales, presented by S3 Maritime, runs 5-9pm. Nine tasting stations will be set up throughout the indoor location at CenturyLink Field, offering craft beers from 10 different artisan breweries. Brewery representatives will be on hand to answer questions about their beers. Packages for Sails & Ales may be purchased online for $27 at http://www.seattleboatshow.com/buy-tickets.html. This price includes a single adult admission to the show valid throughout the day at both locations, plus a complimentary souvenir craft beer glass* and 10 tasting tokens. Tickets for Sails & Ales will also be available at the Box Office.

* Souvenir glass available while supplies last.

We’ve had a lot of fun showing off the Scamp this week! She really draws a crowd and we’ve been enjoying answering questions about this unique boat. There’s really nothing else quite like it.  Here’s a shot of the booth last weekend – you can’t actually see that much of the Scamp because there were so many people gathered around it!  We were fortunate to have Josh from Small Craft Advisor with us, and he was able to answer some great questions and give a lot of insight into the design and function of the boat.


Don’t pass up this great opportunity to see all our boats “in the flesh.”  Remember, the show closes early on Sunday for the Super Bowl!
