Fresh hop beers are just now finding their way into our pint glasses. So too are pumpkin beers. Both are signs that summer is changing into fall. But winter? Yep. It’s time to start thinking about the pending release of those big, dark, and strong beers that we all enjoy during the winter months. They’ll be here sooner than you think.
The Washington Brewers Guild just released information about the Washington Winter Beer Festival. The dates have been set and the tickets are on sale. Here’s all the info straight from the source.
The Washington Brewers Guild presents 2015 WINTER BEER FESTIVAL
December 4 & December 5, Hangar 30 @ Magnuson Park
(Seattle, WA) September 8, 2015- The Washington Brewers Guild will present its annual Winter Beer Festival on Friday, December 4 and Saturday, December 5 in the Hagar 30 at Magnuson Park. This annual event showcases some of the finest, most playfully creative beers by Washington Brewers Guild member breweries. More than 50 breweries are scheduled to serve up their seasonal brews and the event is expected to host 3,000 guests over two days.
Winter seasonal beers are typically bold, dark and robust, allowing plenty of room for the brewers to put their holiday spins by barrel-aging or adding spices and other festive ingredients that will warm our hearts and bodies during the cold, gloomy season. And making spirited beer is not the only way the brewers have fun. Expect to see their booths to be decked out with colorful decorations and even some brewers in costumes. People’s Choice Awards will be presented to favorite beers and booth decorations at the end of each session.
