We do love the free wine Happy Hour trend that has been catching on over the past few years -- thank you Kimpton, Affinia, Andaz, et al. But while wine is more than fine, sometimes we just crave an ice cold brewski.

Hotel Max in Seattle, home to many a craft brewery, is inviting guests to kick back and relax with hand crafted cold one during a daily complimentary craft beer hour in its lobby. The hotel will be pouring full pints for thirsty guests every evening from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. All guests need to do to get their free beer is show a valid photo ID to prove they are of age as well as their hotel key card (guess that means you can't just sneak in off the street; shame).

Right now the hotel is offering beers by the Elysian Brewing Company but tap selections will change regularly to showcase the wide variety of delicious brews made in the Emerald City.

Here's a sample of a few other hotels getting into the craft beer business either via their happy hours our by creating their own brews:

The Four Points by Sheraton LAX has its very own Director of Brewer Relations who hosts beer discussions and tastings at the hotel's Brewster's Bar and Grill from 4 p.m to 2 a.m. Four Points by Sheraton have a brand-wide "Best Brews" program that features a variety of local, regional and imported craft beers at participating hotels.

Kimpton Hotels are best-known for their wine hours, but the Kimpton Hotel Solamar also serves craft beers and seasonal cocktails during their happy hour.

At the Fairmont San Francisco's Laurel Court Restaurant and Bar you can sip on The Fairmont San Francisco Honey Saison Beer made with honey sourced from their very own onsite beehives.

For the past two years' Philadelphia Beer Weeks, the Four Seasons Philadelphia has teamed up with Philly's own Dock Street Brewing Company for limited-edition beer releases at the hotel's Lounge. Let's hope they do it again next year.
