Washington Brewers Festival followup: Which breweries got the most tokens

 

Cheers to the Washington Beer Commission for throwing another awesome beer festival! Last weekend’s Washington Brewers Festival saw over 130 breweries pourĀ about 600 different beers. It’s impossible to say which of the individual beers was the most popular, but we do know which breweries collected the most tokens. We share that information below.

This is by no means a commentary on which brewery is the best, or even the best-loved. There are a lot of factors involved. Of course, the crowd buzz (the chatter among festivalgoers) is probably the most significant contributing factor. Also, some breweries have a certain amount of notoriety and always draw a crowd. Other breweries are from distant regions of the state, like Spokane, Bellingham and Arlington, and their presence at the festival offers local beer drinkers a chance to sample the brewery’s beers without all that pesky driving. Like I said, lots of factors to consider beyond “the best.”

Congrats to Skookum Brewing of Arlington! They showed particularly well this year. Not that surprising, really; they make great beer.

If there was a particular beer that knocked your socks off, or a particular brewery that you thought had the strongest showing, go ahead and share your opinion in the comments below.
