It's time for another launch in our 12 Beers of the Apocalypse series, a collaboration with our friends at the Elysian Brewing Company. Join us on Monday, May 21st, and try "Ruin," a Rosemary Agave IPA, available on draft, and in exclusive 22 oz. bottles with labels featuring the artwork of the great Charles Burns from his weirdly apocalyptic Black Hole series.
The official tapping begins at 6:00 PM, followed by a survival demo by Bryan at 7:30 PM, with "apocalyptic amusements" until 9:00 PM. Come by and collect the next stamp in your Apocalypse Beer Survival Guide. Fill your book with survival item stamps at our Apocalypse events throughout the year for an outstanding experience at our final End of the World Celebration on 12.20.12!
So, come survive the rapture with us at Elysian Brewing Company, located at 1221 E. Pike Street in Seattle! As always: the end is BEER!

Visitors to the Real Comet Press Retrospective at Fantagraphics Bookstore & Galleryon Saturday will be among the first people on the planet to sample the latest Charles Burns-themed beer from Elysian Brewing. The 3rd installment of the 12 Beers of the Apocalypse, offically released on March 21, is a green cardamom ale called Fallout. That's appropriate becuase DJ Russ Fallout will be spinning art damaged punk platters from the 80s in honor of the heyday of Real Comet Press.
We have an amazing array of wonderful artworks, iconic graphics, rare books and long out-of-print comix by the many gifted authors, artists, critics, and cartoonists that helped lay the foundation for Seattle's later ascendence to the forefront of global pop culture. Real Comet Press publisher Cathy Hillenbrand is a goddam civic treasure. Join hosts Michale Dougan, Art Chantry, and Ruth Hayes as we show our appreciation for Cathy's countless contributions to the cultural climate of the region.
Join us on Tuesday, February 21st at 6:00 PM for the official tapping of the Rapture ale, followed by an all-important survival demo, and beer blessings til 9:00 PM, because really now, we could all use a blessing (and a beer!) in these uncertain times.
And don't forget to bring your Apocalypse Beer Survival Guide to this event to collect your second survival stamp. If you missed the first party, don't worry, we will have more guides available at this event. Fill your book with survival item stamps at our Apocalypse events throughout the year for an outstanding experience at our final End of the World Celebration on 12.20.12!
