West Seattle beverage news: Löwman Bräu returns!

When the charity beer Hi-Yu Brü launched earlier this year, as part of an ongoing West Seattle/White Center series of locally brewed beer benefiting charities, some suggested its proceeds should have benefited its namesake festival. Now, the most popular charity beer in the series is re-launching, and its proceeds WILL benefit the West Seattle Hi-Yu Summer Festival. Feedback Lounge (WSB sponsor) proprietor Jeff Gilbert sends word that Löwman Bräu is relaunching today at his bar and eight other local venues – in West Seattle, West 5, Shadowland, Mission, The Bridge, Löcöl, Beveridge Place Pub, and in White Center, Big Al Brewing and Company. Jeff says it should be available at all nine places as soon as they open today.

    Would like to thank the West Seattle Blog for helping us get the word out there, as well as the WS community, all of whom have been incredibly supportive for this series of charity beers. Great neighbors, great community, great beer!

    Yay! This is my favorite WS brew they’ve done, glad it’s back!

    Yea! Also my favorite. Is The Beverage Place going to get any?

  • Lindsey June 8, 2012 (2:03 pm)

    Never mind! I didn’t see their name listed, I guess I was just too excited.

    Maybe the proceeds should benefit a Lowman Beach Clean-Up Fund

    Hi. This might be a question for Jeff Gilberts…how is this re-launch of the Hi-Yu Bru going to benefit West Seattle Hi-Yu Summer Festival? Jeff, or anyone..if you know this answer, please post it! Thanks.

      BF, a share of the proceeds will be donated to Hi-Yu. Starting with the original Lowman Brau beer, then Whale Tail Ale, then Hi-Yu Bru, and now Lowman Brau redux, a portion of each beer’s sales have gone to charity – various charities to this point, but Jeff says for the re-release of Lowman Brau, all the donated revenue – I’ll have to check on the percentages – goes to Hi-Yu – TR

    That is wonderful news to hear!!! Building the float, traveling to other community festivals with the float and raising money for the scholarhip program has to be a huge challenge. As a reminder to the WS community – support Hi-Yu and buy a button (still $1) or a ‘new release’ Totem Pole pin ($6).

Sorry, comment time is over.
