An outreach initiative of Washington Wild, the Washington Brewshed Alliance‘s mission is to spread the message that clean, healthy watersheds and good beer go hand in hand, with the idea that better water equals better brews.
This Thursday, the Brewshed Alliance’s brewing partners — which include Ballard’s Peddler Brewing Company, Reuben’s Brews, and Stoup Brewing — will be pouring their beers at the Hale’s Ales Palladium (4301 Leary Way NW) as part of the Washington Brewshed Beer Fest from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m.
For $25 in advance ($30 at the door), attendees receive five tasting tickets to sample the various brews offered, along with one raffle ticket for merchandise. Additional tasting and raffle tickets can be purchased for $1 each, and food will be available for purchase as well (cash only). Guests will also get the chance to vote on their favorite beers of the evening, with the winning breweries taking home a custom trophy.
Designated drivers do have to purchase tickets for the event, but will receive their own set of perks, including non-alcoholic beverages.
According to their website, the Brewshed Alliance is a way for Washington Wild to further connect with the public on their efforts.
We are always looking for new and unique ways to connect the public with our conservation efforts. Emphasizing the direct link between clean water and better beer is a natural way to engage Washington’s faithful craft beer drinkers and connect them with the wild waters where their favorite beers originate.
