Washington Brewers Fest is This Weekend!
If you and your father are beer lovers like my father and myself, there should only be one thing on your mind this weekend, Washington Brewers Fest at Marymoor Park. 200 beers from 64 different Washington breweries, music and food come together to create a one of a kind experience for all beer enthusiasts. I have attended the last two years and can say that it is a true highlight of my summer.
The beer list has been posted for the festival and I would like to give you a quick run down of what I am excited for.
1: Pour Les Oiseaux - Black Raven Brewing. This wine barrel aged saison with brettanomyces might be the most interesting looking beer on the list, and knowing Black Raven, might be the most tasty of the fest. It also might be terrible. Good thing I'm a gamblin' man.
2. Sour Pale - Lantern Brewing. This choice combines two things I love; sour beers and small breweries. Passionate little guys and challenging beer styles are a great combination.
3. Blue Berry Creme Ale - No-Li Brewhouse. I really like Northern Lights Brewery. The Solar Winds Pale is an excellent pale bordering on IPA. I expect big things from this Blue Berry Cream Ale. Make it happen No-Li.
4. Triple Entendre - Sound Brewing. As you may know if you read the blog, I love Sound Brewing. It's arguably the best beer in the state, brewed by guys who know and love beer. The Double Entendre is fantastic, so why not add one more Entendre? Seems like a great plan!
Weather you like to try new beers or old favorites, from bigger breweries or one man operations, this festival has it all. And the Washington Beer Commission always does a fantastic job organizing all their festivals. All signs point to the Washington Brewers Festival being a great time.

June 16th, 11:00am - 9:00pm, $25
