September also means Bellingham Beer Week! Mark your calendars, as beer week will be held from Friday, September 12 to Sunday, September 21 this year. Celebrating its 3rd consecutive year, BBW promises to be bigger than ever, with more events and MORE BEER!
“The mission of Bellingham Beer Week is to celebrate and promote craft beer in Bellingham and beyond, and to recognize our local craft beer producers, retailers, distributors and consumers who positively impact this community in so many ways. Bellingham Beer Week is a not-for-profit, collaborative effort run by passionate members of the local beer community.”
Below, we highlight a couple of events and this year's collaboration beer. For the full schedule of beer week events, visit www.bellinghambeerweek.com.
Hike + Brewery Meetup
The hike will start at Cyrus Gates Overlook. Participants should arrive at 12:45pm and the hike will begin at 1pm, followed by a meet-up at Wander Brewing at 4pm.
From the Cyrus Gates Overlook parking lot (Discover Pass required), the Rock Trail to Lost Lake overlook is approximately 4.5 miles roundtrip. Built by volunteers, this new trail winds down a series of staircases from Chuckanut Ridge, past large mossy erratics before connecting with the Lost Lake Trail. After working up a thirst, the event will continue again at Wander Brewing. Opened in spring of 2014, Wander Brewing has a selection of eight styles on tap including their award winning WA Uncommon California Common and Correspondent Foreign Extra Stout.
