Strange Brewfest (Port Townsend)

This 16th annual even challenges breweries to make beers that are not only good, but strange as well. Darn near anything goes. This year’s theme (there’s always a theme for this event) is the 80’s classic movie, Strange Brew. Great music, great beer, good fun. “Come as your favorite character, whether it’s hockey, flannel or ski parkas. Just leave your hockey sticks at home, eh?” If you want to book a room in Port Townsend, get on it now!
