What are people interested in for Seattle Beer Week. I posted the following on the Myballard forum. Admittedly this represents most events in Ballard and Fremont but I starred the ones that looked the most interesting.

Our Ballard breweries will be hard at work all around the city at different events but I have heard that some of them may be doing some unofficial events as well. Keep your eye on their blogs and FB pages (and Twitter)
On 5/18 Populuxe will be participating in the NW 49th Street Open House BBQ
PS There are a couple honorary Ballard/Fremont SBW and non-SBW events that deserve mention:
*May 8th Chuck's Hopshop is doing a Ballard Brewery Sampling (Chuck's is arguably Crown Hill more than Greenwood but the event is technically before SBW kickoff)
*On 5/10 Naked City is having Nanobreweries of Washington night at which at least three Ballard nanos will be represented: Peddler, Urban Family and Populuxe (as well as Outlander in Fremont.
*5/15 Randall night at Outlander in Fremont.
*The Tour de Pints IV will be starting in Bremerton or Pike Brewing but will be making stops at the Fremont Dock, Peddler and Hilliard's on 5/18. If you were so inclined you could stop at events at Six gill, Populuxe and the Noble Fir
