Below we have the list of beers pouring at the Everett Craft Beer Festival. The event takes place on the streets of downtown Everett this Saturday (August 17) and features 30 breweries pouring more than 70 different beers . Tickets cost just $15 in advance or $20 at the door (get tickets). Your entry fee includes a tasting cup and five tokens, each good for a 5 oz. taste. Additional tokens are available for purchase at the event. There will also be live music and hot dogs available for purchase on site.
A number of the breweries will offer beers poured through a randall–a device that infuses the beer as it is delivered to your glass. The randall is sort of like a filter (or anti-filter) that sits inline between the keg and tap. Most commonly, randalls are filled with things like hops, fruits, or herbs, but anything goes. Randalls, and the ingredients in them, are used to impart additional flavor to already-delicious beers, giving the brewer one last chance at creative expression before the beer hits your lips.
This event is one of the six festivals organized and operated by the Washington Beer Commission each year. Created in 2006 by an act of the Washington state legislature, the Washington Beer Commission is the only commission of its kind in the country. The Commission uses proceeds from the Everett Craft Beer Festival, and its other events, to promote Washington-brewed beer.
The event takes place in downtown Everett on Hoyt Avenue with the entrance located at Hewitt Avenue in the recently renovated arts district. This unique beer tasting event is presented by the Washington Beer Commission, providing wonderful chance for beer lovers to sample some of the amazing creations from 30 of our state’s finest craft brewers.
