There’s a new beer festival in town!
Featuring 25 breweries with 60+ beers on tap, there’s gonna be something for everyone. We’re happy to see Bellingham represented by Wander and Kulshan — two of our favorite local breweries. Speaking of which, most of the breweries — but not all — are based in Washington, from Seattle favorites Fremont, Urban Family, and Machine House to Tenpin from Moses Lake. Oregon breweries will make an appearance as well, with Ecliptic, Pfriem, Pelican and more in the lineup. Oh, and Rainier will be there too. Did we mention there’s something for everyone?
West Seattle Beer & Music Festival is more than just a beer fest. With “Music” included in the name, we’re willing to bet it plays a big part in the festivities. The lineup sounds funk and soul-heavy — think dancey tunes to keep the party going. And on Saturday night, headliner DJ Indica Jones closes out the show with “infectious grooves”. We dig it.
West Seattle Beer and Music Festival
Tickets start at $25 for Sunday’s “Dog Day Afternoon” (yes, you can bring your dog) and go up to $85 for VIP sessions. The standard Friday - Saturday sessions are $40 - $45 for general admission. Remember, tokens can be spent on beer and food, so you’re getting a pretty good deal! Plus, a portion of proceeds will be given to Westside Baby — keeping kids safe, dry and warm.
With your admission to the festival, you will receive a souvenir tasting glass, tokens for tasting & “Sips & Bites”, outstanding local and national craft beers, music and a chance to talk to your favorite brewer (if you can catch them).
Tix are reportedly going fast, so buy tickets soon to make sure you get your preferred session time.
