3rd Annual Winter Beer Festival this weekend

No matter the time of year, there seems to be a beer festival going on in Seattle. And what better the season than Winter, when beer bellies can be hidden underneath sweaters, peacoats and other fuzzy layers? This weekend, get out and taste some of Washington’s best winter beers at the 3rd Annual Winter Beer Festival. Much like Oktoberfest in Fremont, a $25 admission gets you six 5-ounce beer tastes, with additional tastes priced at $1.50. The festival will be held at Hale’s Ales Brewery & Pub in Fremont and will feature more than 30 winter beers, in addition to a Vintage Beer Tasting, featuring popular winter beers from years past. (The 2007 beer list included Yulefest from Bigtime Brewery & Alehouse, Cabin Fever from Boundary Bay Brewery & Bistro, Sno Cap from Pyramid Ales & Lagers, Bye-Bye Frost from Elysian Brewing Company and more.) Hale’s will be serving food and Samish Bay Cheese will be giving away organic cheese tasting to compliment the beers.

Warning: The Web site says “Many of the beers served at the Winter Beer Festival have high alcohol. Please drink responsibly.” Suhweet. This says to me–more bang for your buck!

Check out the Winter Beer Fest then head to Brouwer’s–essentially down the street–for their Big Wood Fest.
