Día De Los Muertos Festival De Cervezas
All Souls Day Beer Festival
Día De Los Muertos Festival De Cervezas (All Souls Day Beer Festival) returns to Bazi Bierbrasserie and Imperial Bottleshop (3090 SE Division St) for its third consecutive year with an extra day of spooktacular beer and cider celebration. The co-hosted annual event will take place at both locations on Tuesday, November 1st and Wednesday, November 2nd from 3-9 PM.
Día de los Muertos celebrates the lives of the deceased with food, drink, and activities the dead enjoyed in life… and who doesn’t enjoy great beer! The Día De Los Muertos Festival De Cervezas will take place concurrently at both locations offering festival goers the opportunity to walk less than half mile between the two and experience an eclectic mix of 20+ death-themed beers and ciders. Beers named after the dead, and Mexican-influenced beers that pay homage to the country of the holiday’s origin.
While close in proximity, the two bars are far apart in their approach to beer. Bazi features Belgian-inspired beers from near and far, and Imperial focuses on local American craft beer.

Artisinal Imports bring you Kwaktoberfest during the entire month of October and a special celebration on Sunday, October 30th from 2-7 PM featuring a tasting tray with Bosteels Brewery three famous beers: Kwak, Tripel Karmeliet and DeuS. 5 oz samples of each for only $15 including and the opportunity to take home a Quattro with you. This is your opportunity to try the infamous DeuS, available only in 750 ml Dom Perignon bottles.
About the beers for the tasting event:
- Deus undergoes a lengthy, costly maturation in the Champagne caves of France. The elegant and labor-intensive “methode Champenoise” produces the best sparkling beverages in the world. DeuS has characteristics of both sparkling wine (fine, velvety carbonation) and specialty beer (rich maltiness) but also exhibits a fragrant, herbal and spicy character quite unique and special. Flavors of anise, mint, malt, lavender, and a barely perceptible hoppiness make DeuS a very sophisticated treat. Only available in 750 ml bottles.
- Kwak is rich amber in color with a slightly sweet, generously malty character. Hops are subdued, but present a well-considered balance with the juicy ripeness of grain and a fruity, meringue softness.
- Brewed with oats, barley and wheat, Tripel Karmeliet has soft, full, rich grain character with hints of banana, vanilla, and a slight, pleasing bubble-gum aroma. A restrained hop bitterness offers perfect balance and a gentle counterpart to its substantial maltiness. World’s Best Ale 2008.
No tricks here, just treats and lots of them!!!! So give the Kwak a try, after all, the glass is half the fun!

Join Finnriver Farm and Cidery on Thursday, August 18th from 6-9 PM as we celebrate the night before the Gold Medal match for women’s soccer.
In addition to a medal worthy cider flight, Bazi will be creating a cider dessert utilizing Finnriver’s Sparkling Black Currant and some cider cocktails. Jana and her team will also be on site sampling Finnriver’s various lines of ciders.
About the Finnriver cider flight. A cider flight will be available for $10 – 5 oz pours of each of the following four ciders:
Apple Abbey - 6.5% ABV, Belgian-inspired craft cider fermented in two batches, with two strains of Belgian-style abbey yeast. Nose of tropical fruit with hints of spice and pepper. Subtle infusion of oak to fill in the body and then sweeten with organic can sugar for a semi-sweet finish. Double Gold Medal winner at the 2015 Seattle Wine Awards.
Oak & Apple – 6.5% ABV, barrel-aged craft cider. Citrus is layered with a smooth whiskey depth and spicy rye spirit showcasing American Oak, Northwest Rye Whiskey and Washington organic apples for a semi dry finish. Gold Medal winner at the 2015 Portland International Cider Cup.
Sidra - 6.5% ABV, Spanish-American craft cider fermented with open head space in the tank allowing exposure to oxygen, which promotes the wild vinegar bacteria that provide the pungent acetic nose these ciders, are famous for. Fermented with oak and lightly sweetened with organic cane sugar for a dry finish.
Sparkling Black Currant - 6.5% ABV, a light cider with a purple blush that blends heirloom and organic dessert apples with the tart mysteries of organic black currant. Immensely drinkable with a semi-sweet finish. Gold Medal winner at the 2015 World Cider Championship.
About Finnriver Farm and Cidery
Based along the Olympic Peninsula, Finnriver grows over twenty varieties of traditional and heirloom apples in their organic orchard, to feature in their traditional and specialty ciders. They source organic WA dessert apples for their contemporary ciders. And also glean wild apples from their neighbors and local homesteads.
