You're probably already aware that the day after Thanksgiving is full of precipitous discounts on in-demand Christmas gifts like Instant Pots and Theraguns, but what you may not know is that it's also become a popular day in the craft beer community for special releases and sales, especially dark, wintry beers like porters and stouts (Black Friday, get it?). Whether you're hoping to win brownie points with the craft beer geek on your Christmas list or just want to treat yourself after the hubbub of Thanksgiving, we've rounded up some events and new special releases around town for this weekend. For more ideas, check out our food and drink guide.

The Beer Junction Add to a List
What could be more quintessentially Seattle than a drink that combines craft beer and coffee? The Beer Junction will have nine such brews on tap at their annual Coffee Beer Week Add to a List , which kicks off on Black Friday and includes offerings from Aslan, Bale Breaker, Fremont Add to a List , Georgetown Add to a List , Holy Mountain Add to a List , and more. We're particularly intrigued by the "Stove-altine Maple and Coffee Milk Stout," a collaboration between Old Stove Brewing and Urban Family Brewing.

Fremont Brewing Add to a List
It's an annual tradition for Fremont Brewing to debut their extremely sought-after "B-Bomb" (a bourbon barrel-aged imperial winter ale) on Black Friday each year. This year, magnums and 22-ounce bottles of the perennial favorite are now available for pre-sale, with pickup at the taproom beginning on Friday.

Postdoc Brewing Add to a List
Get your hands on a bottle of Postdoc's Irish Cream Demon Star, which features "a rich blend of cacao nibs, vanilla beans, Sumatra Single Origin coffee, and lactose" with "distinct notes of milk chocolate, warm coffee, fragrant vanilla, and a kick of whiskey" and will be released at the brewery on Black Friday.

Reuben's Brews Add to a List
At Reuben's Coffee Beer & Donuts Add to a List event, you can enjoy the Homer Simpson-approved combination of coffee beers made in collaboration with Kuma Coffee Add to a List paired with four doughnuts with complementary flavors from Mighty-O. If you need a little extra caffeine to shake off your Thanksgiving hangover, Kuma will also be serving coffee onsite from 11 am-2 pm.

TeKu Tavern Add to a List
As they do each year for their annual Black Friday cellar sale, TeKu Tavern will pick out some special bottles from their cellars for sale to go.
Pickup, in-person

Total Wine & More
