Ballard SeafoodFest adds ‘Ballard BeerFest’ to the festivities

posterThere’s something new this year at SeafoodFest, and it reflects the brewery takeover of Ballard: BeerFest will feature beers from over a dozen local breweries, including Hilliards, NW Peaks, Populuxe, Reuben’s Brews, Two Beers, Bad Jimmy’s and more.

From the SeafoodFest website:

Ballard’s deep roots in the brewing industry trace back to its establishment as a Scandinavian enclave of Seattle, a community steeped in European customs, including the centuries-old tradition of brewing.

As the former home of one of Washington’s largest and oldest microbreweries, Redhook Brewing, Ballard is the birthplace of modern craft brewing.

The beer garden at SeafoodFest celebrates and showcases the best brews that Ballard has to offer as well as beers from neighboring ‘hoods and communities.  With the many unique beers we’re serving, you’ll be sure to find a new fave or two.

BeerFest hours will be Saturday from noon to 9 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 7 p.m. at 22nd Ave NW and Ballard Ave. A $5 token will get you a 14 oz. beer.
