Celebrate Bellingham Beer Week Aboard the Historic Schooner Zodiac
BELLINGHAM, WASH, August 28, 2015—The Schooner Zodiac, the Bellingham based tall ship is announcing a 2-hour beer tasting sail on Bellingham Bay on Thursday, September 17th. The cruise takes place during Bellingham Beer Week and features beer from Aslan Brewing, a 100% organic brewer based in Bellingham.
The excursion departs at 5:30 pm from the Bellingham Cruise Terminal in the Fairhaven district and returns to the dock at 7:30 pm. Prior to the beer tasting, guests can join the crew and work as a team to raise the ship’s sails including the largest mainsail on the west coast. Once the sails are raised, passengers will be treated to five different styles of Aslan’s brews and hearty snacks prepared fresh in the ship’s galley. Tickets are available for $65 and include the beer and food. To make a reservation please call (206) 719-7622. More information on the cruise and the Zodiac can be found at www.schoonerzodiac.com.
The Zodiac is a classic, 160-foot U.S. Coast Guard certified vessel, operated by a licensed captain and experienced team of volunteer crewmembers. She departs her Bellingham homeport for a variety of public and private charters, as well as day and evening sails from spring through fall, exploring the pristine anchorages of the San Juan Islands and Canadian Gulf Islands. Zodiac also is an ideal setting for company events, wedding receptions and gatherings of family and friends.
