The Seattle International Beer Festival Is Right Around The Corner

SIBF2013

Coming up this weekend, which is also Father’s Day weekend, is the Washington Brewers Festival at Marymoor Park in Redmond.  While you’re out there enjoying all of those wonderful Washington state craft beers with Dad, don’t forget that the Seattle International Beer Festival (SIBF) is also right around the corner.  This annual festival brings together a huge lineup of wonderful craft beers from all around the country and the World.

This year’s SIBF will kick off on Friday, July 5th (the first ‘real’ day of summer here in Seattle) and will run through Sunday, July 7th.  The full tap list for this year’s festival has just been announced, and it’s quite impressive:

Tickets for this year’s SIBF are $25 for the general admission 10-ticket deal ($30 at the gate), or you can get the “BIG DEAL” of 40 taster tickets for $45, which also gets you express entry.  Of course, if you plan to use all 40 tickets on one day you might want to think about a cab ride home!  Here are some details of what you can expect at the festival:

-Official SIBF Taster Glass
– Additional tickets are just $1 each. Each serving is 4oz.
– Beers cost 1 to 7 tickets, depending on how much it costs the festival.
-FULL PINTS for 3 tickets ($3) in the GRANDE BEER GARDEN.
– There are a lot of 1-ticket beers, so don‘t worry if you‘re on a budget.
– Free re-entry: COME BACK ALL WEEKEND! (must have glass & wristband. NO EXCEPTIONS)
– Tickets are non-refundable.

The $45, 40-ticket deal is your best bet and, if you don’t use all your tickets in one day, you can come back.  As noted above, your $25 or $45 ticket gets you free re-admission all weekend long.  Just be sure to keep your wristband and taster glass (both are required for re-entry).  Tickets for this year’s SIBF can be purchased online HERE.
