Here’s the announcement from McMenamins:

As temperatures start to warm up and flowers begin to bloom, there’s one thing Seattleites love to pair with spring: Craft beer. Nice weather also heralds the 22nd annual Olympic Club Brewfest in Centralia, Washington —  the only brewfest offering a free train ticket right to its door.

Visitors can climb aboard this year’s festival, taking place TWO-days on April 20 and 21, to sample craft ales brewed in Oregon and Washington at various locations, including McMenamins. Ride the train with fellow beer connoisseurs or find another way to pull in to town.

Wash down a fresh pint with some of “the world’s best baked beans” or taste test specials from the open-pit barbecue. Challenge your friends to a round of pool or curl up beside the cozy fire pit. For those seeking a glimpse into the past, count on the McMenamins venue to illuminate remnants of the  history of railway bootlegging, secret call buttons, hidden tunnels and rumored hauntings.
