Washington Brewers Festival Father’s Day Weekend

What better way to show your Dad that you love him, than to buy him a ticket to a beer festival! The 6th Annual Washington Brewers Festival returns to Saint Edward State Park this coming Father’s Day Weekend with more than 60 craft breweries pouring more than 200 unique beers.

The Festival kicks off on Friday, June 17, from 4pm to 9pm, and featuring 44 of Washington’s breweries. Some of these will bring Friday-exclusive beers which are often smaller-batch, highly creative brews. Saturday and Sunday guests can choose from the full beer lineup from all 64 breweries (10 from outside of Washington) and there are always some great surprises and new beers and breweries to try.

In addition the Festival features live music all three days, terrific food options with picnic table seating and expanded wine and cider options for the non-beer partisan.
