Like Beer? B•Town Brewfest Announces Final Brewer List for Oct. 13 Event
The B•Town Brewfest on Thursday (Sept. 20) announced their final brewer list for their upcoming event, to be held Saturday, Oct. 13, at the Burien Community Center.
This inaugural beer festival will serve as a benefit for the Seatac Guild of Seattle Children’s Hospital. For over 25 years this incredible organization — made up of working mothers — has been raising money for uncompensated care at Seattle Children’s Hospital. To learn more about this non-profit organization, please visit http://www.seatacguildsch.org.
The event will feature 12 craft brewers, including:
- Airways Brewing Co., Kent, WA
- Diamond Knot Craft Brewing, Mukilteo, WA
- Elliott Bay Brewing Co., Burien, WA
- Harmon Brewing Co., Tacoma, WA
- Iron Horse Brewing, Ellensburg, WA

- Northwest Brewing Co., with Flying Bike Coop Brewery, Pacific, WA
- Odin Brewing Co., Seattle, WA
- Schooner Exact Brewing Co., Seattle, WA

“I could not be more pleased with the list of participating brewers. They all bring unique beers to the table and an enormous passion for brewing,” said event organizer John Fosberg. “The Brewfest will offer event goers a memorable and diverse group of craft beers to choose from. We are very pleased about having Burien’s own Elliott Bay Brewing at the Brewfest — great to have local representation. Plus, we have a couple of Oregon state brewers participating, and even a new-cooperative brewery, Flying Bike Brewery from Pacific, WA. You gotta come and check out everything these brewers have to offer. It’s going to be a great and fun day.”
It just so happens that The Great American Beer Festival in Denver — THE premier American beer festival and competition is being held the same day.
“The B•Town Brewfest is our little version of that incredible event,” Fosberg added. “We wanted to create a local event where beer lovers could gather, experience new beer tastes, and have a good time — right in our little neck of the woods. It’s a great time for beer.”
Mr. Fosberg continued by saying, “The brewer list filled up fast — many of the brewers mentioned having a loyal customer base in the area. Once brewer names starting showing up on the event’s website and Facebook page, advance tickets started selling at a brisk pace. I would encourage everyone to purchase their tickets before hand — I would hate to turn anyone away at the gate.”
Advance tickets are $20 (you save $5), and are available online by visiting the Festival’s website at http://www.btownbrewfest.com, or at http://www.brownpapertickets.com. There are two 4-hour sessions: 11:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. Your ticket admission includes a 2012 commemorative taster cup and ten taster tokens.
