Who is the biggest and baddest one of them all? The Washington Brewers’ Fest held every Fathers’ Day weekend! This year the Washington Brewers’ Fest runs from Friday the 13th 2014 through Sunday, June 15, 2014 at Marymoor Park in Redmond. Sponsored by the Washington Beer Commission, the Washington Brewers’ Fest is a weekend celebrating the craft and culture of BEER. The weekend kicks off with the adult only Friday night geared for the beer geek. Special one-off beers will make Friday night only appearances for the discerning palate. Friday night is also the best chance to meet and greet your favorite brewer as they are most likely to be behind their booths for at least part of the evening on Friday or in front of somebody else’s booth discussing beer.  It is the Brewers’ fest after all.

  • Select Washington breweries (70+ breweries)
  • Select Friday exclusive beers
  • Music Stage featuring all female AC/DC tribute band Hell’s Belles
  • Select food vendors

On Saturday and Sunday, the Brewers’ fest becomes a family affair.  The brewers will be there but they may be as likely to be hanging out with their families as they are behind the booth. More breweries and more beers are available as well as activities, food and drink for the entire family. Picnic areas will fill with families and lawn chairs to enjoy weekend. Music will be playing and and the people watching can not be underestimated.
