The Washington Beer Commission Oktoberfest is coming to Spokane on September 24-September 26, 2010. This is the very first Washington Beer Commission sanctioned event east of the cascades. That is great news for folks in Eastern Washington and a great opportunity to take a trip to Spokane
Spokane Oktoberfest is being held at the beautiful and historic Riverfront park.

- West is not always best – Often the beer contributions east of the cascades are overlooked. Part of this due to the nature of nano and micro brewing. When there is only a bit of beer brewed, it tends be consumed close to the source. Some of the fault lies in our archaic distribution laws that can make it challenging to get the beer to the more densely populated areas of our state. But remember where all of those hops come from! Spokane Oktoberfest is an opportunity to taste those beers that may not be available in your corner of the state.
- WASHINGTON BEER! Over 20 Washington breweries will be pouring over 45 different Washington beers. The beers range from Hefeweizen to Porter, with a special emphasis on seasonal brews.
