The Washington Brewers Festival rapidly approaches. The annual “Big Daddy” beer fest takes place at Marymoor Park in Redmond on June 14 thru 16 (Father’s Day weekend). Read our previous posts. One of the biggest challenges with this or any beer festival is arranging safe transportation home from the event. Today I want to tell you about one option and encourage you to share information about any other options.
Elliott Bay Brewery and Pub in West Seattle is once again offering an all-inclusive package to get you to and from the Washington Brewers Festival. Your luxury motorcoach (bus) departs the West Seattle Pub on Saturday, June 15 at 11:00 a.m. and returns at 6:00 p.m. For $50.00 you get a round trip bus ride, festival admission, and beer and snacks on the bus. In case you’re wondering, there is a bathroom on the bus. Payment is due with your reservation, which you should make in person at the pub. (The pub is not selling festival tickets separate from brewbus.)
So what other pubs or breweries are offering similar adventures? What are your plans for beer fest transportation? Is anyone else considering using Uber? As I understand it, there are metro options that will get you within a mile of the festival. Please leave a comment and tell us what you know. I’m curious to see if we can have a constructive conversation about transportation options without turning this into a “Why don’t they have the festival somewhere else?” conversation.
