What better way to celebrate Oktoberfest than with beer, sausages, and pretzels? On Thursday, October 12, 30 Yelp Elites from the Seattle community were invited to SieMatic Seattle, a small business operated by Summers Studio that cares for its clients and community by working with local designers, architects, builders, chefs, and restaurants, partnering with the design and culinary industries. It also gives back to the community by hosting classes and events for local organizations.
Teaming up with Sea Wolf Bakers, a family-owned Seattle craft bakery that sources local ingredients and practices skilled craftsmanship, SieMatic Seattle was the perfect venue for Elites to roll up their sleeves and get their hands on pretzel dough as they rolled and shaped their own personal pretzels, which was later baked in SieMatic Seattle’s ovens. One of the founding brothers of Sea Wolf Bakers, Jesse Schumann, led this workshop filled with a combination of laughter and concentration as Elites attempted to perfect the art of pretzel making.
Another group of Seattle Elites met with graduate of Cordon Blue Paris and founder of Eat Seattle Tours, Liz MCune, for an informative sausage making demo with Uli’s Famous Sausage. Not only was the Eat Seattle Tours cooking demo informative and fun to watch, but it also helped put the Elites in the Oktoberfest mood as they munched on the local all-natural, no fillers, and no unnecessary preservative sausages, sourced from small-scale farmers.
And no Oktoberfest celebration is complete without beer. Jeff Rasnack, the beer sales and packaged foods manager of Pike Brewing Company, offered tastings of the local beer, from the Space Needle Golden IPA to Monk’s Uncle Belgian Tripel to the Pike High Five Golden Ale, there was something for every beer drinker.
Cathleen Summers, owner and principal designer of SieMatic Seattle, welcomed Elites to her space for a night of memories, great food, and drinks, all in a gorgeous venue that really showcases the long tradition of German engineering and design excellence of SieMatic kitchen cabinetry and the luxury lifestyle that the brand represents.
