The Washington Beer Collaboration Festival Happens This Weekend

It seems like I’ve been telling you about a lot of collaboration beers lately.  There was the Chainline & Georgetown ‘Bunk Beds’ collaboration project, the American Dream Collaboration Pack from Samuel Adams, Sierra Nevada‘s collaboration with Brauhaus Miltenberger for the ultimate Oktoberfest bier, the Harvest Collaboration Series and Sesiones del Migrante collaboration from Bale Breaker Brewing and, of course, this year’s 3-Way IPA from Fort George, Reuben’s and Great Notion (which has been somewhat difficult to find this year).

With so many collaboration beers around, it seems like it would be a great idea to have a festival where you could sample several different collaboration beers all in one place.  Well, luckily for us, just such a festival is happening at the end of this week.  Coming up this Saturday, August 19th, is the 2017 Washington Beer Collaboration Festival, presented by the Washington Beer Commission.

Set to return this year to the South Lake Union Discovery Center lawn, the Washington Beer Collaboration Festival will feature 27 different collaboration beers from 50 different Washington State breweries.  Tickets are on sale now.  The cost is $30 in advance or $35 at the door.  Your ticket price includes a tasting glass and 8 tasting tokens for 4 oz pours.  If you need more, additional tokens may be purchased for $2.00 each or three for $5.00.  Designated driver tickets will also be available at the door for $5 each and include a water or soda.
