The 9th Annual Belgian Fest Happens This Month

As I get a bit older (Nooo!), I’m not as much of a fan of Winter as I used to be, but I am indeed a fan of several of the craft beer festivals that come around in the Winter months.  Just last month was the Big Wood Fest at Brouwer’s Cafe and, of course, the IPA Cask-O-Rama at Beveridge Place Pub.  Also coming up next month is the 16th Annual Hard Liver Barleywine Festival at Brouwer’s and the Hop Mob Triple IPA Roadshow – coming to multiple locations.  I’ll provide more info on those events as they draw closer.

Before indulging in all those barleywines and triple IPAs, however, how about a quick trip to Belgium?  I’d love to take a real trip to Belgium but, for now, I’ll settle for attending the 9th Annual Belgian Fest, which is coming to Seattle Center’s Fisher Pavilion on Saturday, January 27th.  Presented by the Washington Beer Commission.

Featuring well over 100+ Belgian-style beers, all brewed by Washington State breweries, Belgian Fest is Washington’s homage to all those wonderful Belgian style we enjoy. You’ll find Tripels, Dubbels, Saisons, Wits, Abbeys, Lambics and more.
