Updated April 21: See the poster below for more details and the list of breweries involved. This post was originally a call to action for any breweries that might be interested in participating. Now that they’ve secured some beer, we have more to tell.
The “Keeping it Coastal” Brewfest is scheduled for Saturday, August 9th in Westport, Washington. The event will feature craft beer from Washington and Oregon. Westport Brewing Company is helping organize the event, which will benefit the local VFW and its agencies.
The folks at Westport Brewing contacted me and would like me to share some information with you about an upcoming beer festival on the Washington coast. This is primarily a call for breweries interested in participating. If you are interested in participating in a beer festival on the Washington coast, during the summer, see the information below.
