Stouts by the fire

One of my favorite weekend outings is most definitely a camping trip somewhere with a bunch of friends sharing good beers and sitting around a campfire. How can you go wrong with that? If the idea sounds as appealing to you, join WABL for their 2nd Annual Washington Beer/WABL Campout from August 13-15 on Whidbey Island. This is only open to WABL members (21+) and their guests, so if you still aren’t a member and want to go now is the perfect time to sign up on their website. More information from WABL follows.

Washington brewers and WABL members are cordially invited to the 2nd annual WA Beer/WABL campout on August 13-15. This time the campout will take place on a private property on Whidbey Island. This is a 21+ only, WA brewer/WABL exclusive event.
Here is some detail:
  • This is a “do-it-yourself” “bring-your-own-everything” event. You are responsible for your own transportation to/from the camp site, setting up your tents, and for everything you will need during the weekend including food, water, beer, tent, camping gear, etc.
  • There is room for 40 WABL members including guests. Each WABL member may bring one non-member guest.
  • Please bring your own food and beverages (including beer) and feel free to bring extra to share with others. We’ll do potluck each night and it’s all about sharing good food, beer & time with great company!
  • This event is hosted by WABL (WAshington Beer Lovers). Needless to say if you are going to bring beer, which I’m sure all of you will, please bring Washington Beer!
  • No RV parking or hookups
  • There is some sheltered sleeping space as well as places to set up tents. A double outhouse on the property and a shower available at the Ebey’s LandingState Park, 1.5 miles from the property.
  • There are state parks with trails and beach nearby and there will be a few local events happening that weekend (Coupevile Arts & Crafts Fair, Greenbank Highland Games, farmers market, etc).
  • Limited parking space so carpooling is encouraged
  • This is a private property so we ask that you follow the rules and be respectful to our gracious host. More detail to be emailed to the participants a few weeks before the trip.
How to sign up
This is a 21+ only, WA brewer/WABL exclusive event. You must be a current WABL member in August, 2010 to be eligible. You may bring one non-WABL guest but they must be accompanied by a current WABL member. A certain number of spots will be reserved for the Washington Brewers Guild member brewers.
For WABL members first 20 spots are first-come, first-serve and the rest will be selected by a random drawing, if the number exceeds the capacity. Sign up fee is $10 per person. You can reserve both nights, or just one night (fee is the same regardless of the number of nights). If you’d like to reserve your spot please mail a check payable to the Washington Brewers Guild to P.O. Box 20014, Seattle, WA  98102 by July 16. Please make sure to include the following info with the check:
  • Your name and WABL ID number
  • Name of your non-WABL guest, if any
  • Other WABL members whom you wished to be grouped with and therefore don’t want to be separated (i.e. husband gets picked and wife doesn’t). Please write down all the names in your group and indicate that you do not want to be separated.
  • Night(s) you want to participate (Friday night, Saturday night, or both)
