The next event I'll be attending is Seattle's 2012 Belgianfest, which will be held this year on Saturday, February 4th at the Bell Harbor International Conference Center on pier 66. There will be more than 60 different Belgian styled beers from several different Seattle area breweries. Tickets are on sale now from Brown Paper Tickets, and there are two sessions to chose from:
Session 1: 12:00-4:00 pm
Session 2: 5:30-9:30 pm
I already have my ticket for Session 1, and I'm looking forward to wrapping my lips around some Saisons, dubbels, wits, farmhouse ales, lambics and more. Belgian yeasts have very distinctive character, and I'm looking forward to a full afternoon of inundating my palate with various, wonderful Belgian styles.
