Back in May we told you about the upcoming Tacoma Craft Beer Festival. (Read our previous post for more details about the festival.) Today we want to announce that the festival date has changed. Originally scheduled for September 8th, the event has been rescheduled and will take place on Saturday, September 1st. Tickets go on sale July 15th.

This is the fourth year for this festival and the second year that it will take place on the Foss Waterway. This year’s event promises more beer, great food and live entertainment. Over 50 craft breweries will participate. Here is the press release we received from festival organizers today:

date has been moved to Saturday September 1st 2012

After a visit from the festival foul up ferry, We’ve been motivated to change the date of the Tacoma Craft Beer Festival back to Labor Day, Sept 1st. Sorry about this, the Venue was double booked and we didn’t want to fight with the Alzheimer’s foundation. That would make us look like bullies.

  1. Dang I was originally so happy it wasn’t Labor Day weekend again this year. Between PAX, Bumbershoot and the Husky opener (typically) it’s almost impossible to find the time to get down there 🙁
