The PNA Summer Beer Taste Happens This Weekend


Many of Seattle’s neighborhoods are tight knit communities.  Each is different in its own way and in the Phinney neighborhood, the Phinney Neighborhood Association (PNA) helps bring the community together.  In their own words, the PNA exists to: “Build, engage and support our diverse community through programs, services and activities that connect neighbors and foster civic engagement.”

One of the best ways I know of to help connect the people in a community is an outdoor social gathering, and what better social gathering than a beer tasting?  Coming up this Saturday, July 23rd is the 10th Annual PNA Summer Beer Taste.

Taking place from 4-7 pm in the Phinney Center lower parking lot, the Summer Beer Taste brings together over 30 local breweries and cideries, plus pub style snacks, and “dogs” from the Barking Dog Alehouse.  The cost for the event is $25 for PNA members and $30 for the general public.  Designated Driver tickets are $10.  This is a 21 and over event and dogs are not allowed (other than service dogs).
