What Would George Drink? 3rd Annual Great Washington Porter Festival

We just received the announcement that Saddle Rock Pub & Brewery in Wenatchee will host the third annual Great Washington Porter Festival this year. The event takes place on Presidents Day Weekend (February 14 and 15).

In addition to being a festival that celebrates all sorts of Northwest-born porters, there will also be a homebrew contest. We’ll have more details about that in the coming days.

State and the Northwest will be poured at the festival, including brown porters, robust porters, imperial porters, smoked porters, barrel-aged porters and others with additional ingredients such as vanilla.
