Beer Church Turkey Bowl
For the past several years Kendall & Kim Jones have organized and hosted the Beer Church Turkey Bowl the Saturday before Thanksgiving, a fundraiser and food drive for the West Seattle Food Bank. For our 20th Anniversary, the event grossed $12,600, by far the largest total ever earned at Turkey Bowl along with 1120 pounds of food.
The event takes over all 32 lanes at West Seattle Bowl. Along with 250 bowlers, many people attend Turkey Bowl just to enjoy the party and participate in the auction and raffle. Along with members of the general public, many of the local breweries, cideries and bars send teams.
There’s a trophy involved and in 2018 Airways Brewing won top honors as our Battle of the Brewers champion.
Huge thanks Kendall & Kim, all the participants and public who come to drink great beer and donate so generously to help provide those in need with food and other services.

Harvest Festival Chili Cook-Off
What a success the 6th Annual Chili Cook-Off was! $3400 and $130 from the Beer Junction Root Beer Garden tips. We had so much fun and West Seattle definitely loves their chili! Thank you to the West Seattle Junction Association for inviting us and most certainly to the 9 contestants who donated and served their delicious chili: Duos Catering, Easy Street Cafe, Elliot Bay Brewery, Girls Gone BBQ, Husky Deli, Pecos Pit BBQ, Shadowland, The Bridge & The Westy.
Congratulations to Duos Catering for winning for the second year, having bragging rights, getting an apron and a very cute trophy – until next year.
Thanks to everyone who attended, purchased tastings and voted to support the West Seattle Food Bank.
