Today we want to welcome a new sponsor aboard: The 4-Corners BrewFest. On August 11th, 4-Corners.Org will be hosting its Second Annual 4-Corners BrewFest from 3:00 – 7:00 in Shoreline. We hare some pictures from last year’s event below.

Like last year, 4-Corners BrewFest will be held at the Innis Arden Community House at 1430 NW 188th in Shoreline (map). In 2012, approximately two dozen local craft breweries will be pouring 40+ beers. Breweries that have already committed include:

192 Brewing (Kenmore)
7 Seas Brewing (Gig Harbor)
Lazy Boy Brewing (Everett)
Diamond Knot Brewing (Mukilteo)
Brickyard Brewing (Woodinville)
American Brewing (Edmonds)
Gallagher’s Where-U-Brew (Edmonds)
Big E Ales (Lynnwood)
Fremont Brewing (Seattle)
Pike Brewing (Seattle)
Georgetown Brewing (Seattle)
Emerald City Beer Company (Seattle)
Schooner EXACT Brewing (Seattle)
Two Beers Brewing (Seattle)
Naked City Brewery (Seattle)
Lantern Brewing (Seattle)
Reuben’s Brews (Seattle)
Silver City Brewing (Silverdale)
Iron Horse Brewing (Ellensburg)
Hilliard’s Beer (Seattle)

Live music will be provided by the Shoreline Bluegrass All-Stars.

Tickets are on sale now for $30 and can be purchased online at Brown Paper Tickets (http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/252642) or in person at Beach House Greetings (626 NW Richmond Beach Road in Shoreline) or Special Brews (14608 Hwy 99 in Lynnwood).  Your ticket includes:

Souvenir taster cup
Ten 5-oz tastes from 20+ local craft breweries
Great food donated by Shoreline-area restaurants
Peanuts, pretzels, popcorn, and brats

A limited number of designated driver tickets (food and non-alcoholic drinks only) are also available through Brown Paper Tickets.  Sales overall have been brisk and the price goes up after August 3rd so be sure to get your tickets early.

Brewers will once again be competing for ‘The Golden Growler’ (think a poor man’s Lord Stanley’s Cup).  Last year, Big E Ales took the prize with its Summer Orange Creamsicle, followed closely by Lantern’s Zwarte-Wit and Silver City’s Fat Scotch Ale.

All proceeds from 4-Corners BrewFest are donated back to the community.  For 2012, a percentage will be donated to New Beginnings, a domestic violence nonprofit serving King and Snohomish counties. The remainder will go to the 4-Corner neighborhood associations to fund and support their respective community programs, scholarships, and outreach services.

4-Corners.Org is 501(c)(3) nonprofit registered with the Washington State Charities Program and takes its name from the common intersection each of the four neighborhoods share at Richmond Beach Road and 8th Avenue NW in Shoreline, Washington.  4-Corners.Org is 100% volunteer.  For more information, go to www.4-corners.org.
