The Washington Beer Commission will host its Fourth annual South Sound Craft Beer Festival on Sat., Oct. 28, at the Tacoma Dome Exhibition Hall. The Commission currently produces seven tasting festivals around the state as a means for funding the marketing, promotion, and public relations efforts of the Washington Beer Commission and its more than 360 member breweries.
The South Sound Craft Beer Festival will turn the Tacoma Dome Exhibition Hall into a Halloween-themed haven of hops, featuring some of the best India Pale Ales (IPA’s) to be found anywhere, along with some fantastic seasonal brews as we move toward winter. In all, there will be at least 120 delicious craft beers served up by the 40 Washington breweries on hand (see list below). There will also a great selection of food items to pair with the delicious craft beer samplings.
The tasting event will take place from noon to 6 p.m. on Oct. 28. Admission is $20 in advance and $25 at the door and includes a commemorative tasting cup along with six, 5oz. sample tastes. Additional tastes will be available for purchase at $2 each (or three additional tastes for $5). Complete ticket and event information is available at washingtonbeer.com. This is a 21 and over event. Designated driver admission is $5 and available at the door only. Parking is free. The Washington Beer Commission encourages designated drivers and reminds everyone to enjoy themselves responsibly.
