Ballard-Brewed Winter Beer Fest returns on November 2nd


Ballard Brewed Winter Beer Festival to Benefit Bellwether Housing

Eleven Breweries Unite to Serve Up Great Beer While Doing Good in the Community

SEATTLE — What better way to launch the holiday season than with local Ballard breweries and ten tastes of winter brews at the Ballard Brewed Winter Beer Festival at Hales Palladium! And even better, all proceeds go to benefit Bellwether Housing, Seattle’s largest nonprofit provider of affordable housing.


On Saturday, November 2nd, 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 will come together under one roof, Hale’s Palladium, to pour tastings of their Winter beers and ales.  Each will bring two beers, one of which will be released for the first time that day.

There will be two sessions for this event to accommodate demand.

Session one will run from 2 – 4:30 PM and feature music by Ranger and the Re-Arrangers.

Session two will run from 5 – 7:30 PM and feature music by Pickled Okra.

Food will be available for purchase at both sessions from Frelard Tamales.

“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 over $30,000 through events to support affordable housing in the Seattle area. We are happy to have their partnership in this critical effort.”
