Washington Brewers Festival: Kenmore, Washington
Saint Edwards State Park
This is my favorite Washington beer festival. Its outside, has great food vendors and the line up of Washington beers is always impressive. Last year, the highlight of my day was Twangzister by Snipes Mountain Brewing Co. This year, I will be spending sometime in the Rootbeer garden, but I wouldn’t miss this for the world.
Washington Brewers Festival is the biggest and one of the longest running of the six beer tasting events presented by the Washington Beer Commission.
More than 60 breweries (50+ from Washington state!) will be on hand to pour more than 200 craft brews in this annual pilgrimage of 15,000 to Saint Edward State Park in Kenmore, June 17-19.
Washington Beer is recognized everywhere as being high in quality and taste thanks to the energy and creativity of the craft brewers and abundance of fresh ingredients available right here in the evergreen state.
Established in July 2007 the Washington Beer Commission represents all 145 craft breweries in the state with a mission is to ensure that more beer enjoyed in Washington is made by its own craft brewers.
Support your local breweries and Drink Washington Beer!
