There's A New Beer Festival In Town
UPDATE - 6/27/2012: The date for the fest has been changed from October 6th to October 13th.
Washington is well know for beer festivals. We have the Washingon Brewer's Festival, Belgianfest, the Everett Craft Beef Festival, Sour Fest, the Hard Liver Barleywine Fest and many, many more scattered all around the Seattle area.
Well, I hope you have room for one more on your craft beer calandar, becuase coming up on Saturday, October 13th, 2012 is the first annual B-Town Brewfest - the Seattle area's newest beer festival. Proceeds from this festival will go to benefit Seattle Children's Hospital.
There is no info yet regarding which brewers will be attending the fest, but we do know the basics. The festival will be held at the Burien Community Center (14700 6th Ave SW, Burien, WA), and will be divided into two sessions. The first is from 11:30AM - 3:30PM and the second will be from 4:30PM - 8:30PM. Tickets for the festival are $25 in advance or $30 at the gate. Advance tickets are available for purchase now through Brown Paper Tickets. You can also CLICK HERE to sign up as a volunteer for the festival.
Your ticket price includes admission to the festival, a festival program, a 5oz commemorative taster glass and 9 tasting tokens. Additional drink tokens will be available for purchase for $2 each.
So mark your calendar now and maybe I'll see you in Burien on October 13th.
Drink responsibly and stay safe out there.
