Washington is well known for beer festivals. We have the Washingon Brewer’s Festival, Belgianfest, the Everett Craft Beef Festival, Sour Fest, the Hard Liver Barleywine Fest and many, many more scattered all around the Seattle area and across the state. Well, I hope you have room for one more on your craft beer calandar, becuase coming up on Saturday, October 13th, 2012 is the first annual B-Town Brewfest – the Seattle area’s newest beer festival. Proceeds from this festival will go to benefit Seattle Children’s Hospital.
