Governor Inslee declares this Saturday Washington Beer Day


Whereas this is the kind of thing that governors do, and whereas this Saturday breweries across the state open their doors and welcome the public for Washington Beer Open House, and whereas people around here drink a lot of locally brewed beer, Governor Jay Inslee just signed an official proclamation declaring this Saturday to be Washington Beer Day.
