Ballard-Brewed Spring Beer Festival – Saturday, April 13th


In the wake of the Ballard Brewed Winter Beer Festival, the breweries of the Ballard Brewery District present the first-ever Ballard Brewed Spring Beer Festival on Saturday, April 13th. The event features beers from 11 breweries, all located in Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood. Appropriately, the event takes place at one of the breweries: The Palladium at Hale’s Ales Brewery.


Because the Ballard Brewed Winter Beer Festival sold out, the participating breweries decided to add a second session for the Spring Beer Festival. The afternoon session runs from 2:00 –  4:00 and the evening session from 5:00 – 7:00. Musical entertainment during the first session will be provided by Honey Mustard. For the second session, The Tall Boys. Food will be available for purchase at both sessions from Chavoya’s Hot Dogs and Big Mario’s Pizza.

Each of the 11 breweries will bring two beers to the festival. One of the two beers will be a new beer released for the first time that day. Participating breweries: Bad Jimmy’s, Hales Ales Brewery, Lagunitas Brewing Company, Lucky Envelope Brewing, Maritime Pacific Brewing Company, NW Peaks Brewery, Obec Brewing, Peddler Brewing, Populuxe Brewing, Reuben’s Brews, and Stoup Brewing.


The event is a fundraiser for Bellwether Housing, Seattle’s largest private, nonprofit affordable housing provider. “We are so thankful to the Ballard Brewery District,” says Amy Besunder, Director of Fund Development and Communications, Bellwether Housing. “To date, they have raised $18,000 through events to support affordable housing in the Seattle area. We are happy to have their partnership in this critical effort.”
