WA's First Classy Liquor Store; Fresh Hop Beer Is Back; More

WEST SEATTLE—Drinking doyenne Jess Voelker says the Washington State Liquor Control Board's first-ever "premier" store opens today in West Seattle. The Junction got the nod because of its "high median income," and the fact that the neighborhood apparently spends liberally on booze. A second upscale, non-depressing liquor store is in the works for "an undisclosed urban area" somewhere in Washington. [Seattle Met]

SODO—Local brewery Two Beers Brewing will debut its Fresh Hop 2011 beer on Friday at its SoDo tasting room. Why is this a big deal? Because very few places in the country, nay, the world are located close enough to fresh hops to make this beer a reality. Breweries must use hops less than 24 hours after harvesting. Two Beers says its version will be the first available in Seattle this season; the tasting room opens at 3 p.m. on Friday and both drafts and 22-ounce bottles will be available throughout the city as of September 5.
