West Seattle Beer and Music Festival, August 24th thru 26th

 

For the inaugural West Seattle Beer and Music Festival, event organizers set high expectations and high standards. They are not limping into this thing. Instead, they are hitting the ground running, offering four different sessions across the weekend of Friday, August 24 through Sunday, August 26. Also, they are not taking the easy way out and offering run-of-mill beers that you see everyday: they’re bringing in the good stuff. Along with that, live music, tasty food, cocktails and more.

The event will offer over 70 different beers (some familiar beers alongside many specialty beers) from 25 local and not-so-local breweries. What’s more, the event offers an optional, upscale experience in the Barrel Lounge, where they’ll focus on barrel-aged beers from some beloved producers.

We’ll share more details about the West Seattle Beer and Music Festival as the date nears. For now, here’s some basic information so you can mark the dates and secure your tickets.
