Ballard Brewed Festival back for Spring

The popular Ballard Brewed Festival is back again for its spring edition.

The first-ever Ballard Brewed happened in December last year, and was such a huge success, they’re doing it again on April 13.

Eleven Ballard breweries take part in the festival: Bad Jimmy’s Brewing Co. Hale’s Ales, Lagunitas Seattle TapRoom & Beer Sanctuary, Lucky Envelope Brewing, Maritime Pacific Brewery, NW Peaks Brewery, Obec Brewing, Peddler Brewing Company, Populuxe Brewing, Reuben’s Brews and Stoup Brewing. Each brewery will bring two beers, one of which will be released for the first time at the festival.

Just like last time, they’ll be donating all proceeds to Bellwether Housing, Seattle’s largest private, nonprofit housing provider.

Because the first one was so popular, for this festival, they’ll host two separate sessions: one will be from 2pm to 4pm, and the other, 5pm to 7pm. According to a post in the event page, the organizers, Bellwether Housing, decided on sessions in order to maximize the number of attendees.

There will be live music (bands TBD), pizza from Big Mario’s, and hot dogs from Chavoya’s.

The 21+ event will be held at Hale’s Ales Palladium (4301 Leary Way NW); tickets are $30 for 11 drink tickets, or $40 if you want to add on a commemorative t-shirt.

One thing I really hope changes this time is the VOLUME of the performers. If we were here for the show alone it would have been fine but this is a community event where you need to talk to people to order and about the beers you’re drinking. Shouting over the full volume performances really impeded the experience last time.
