Washington Brewers Festival Beer Lineup Announced

June 6th, 2011 · 2 Comments · Events

Coming up in less than two weeks now, the Washington Brewers Festival is set to be held Father’s Day Weekend from June 17 to June 19 at the beautiful Saint Edward State Park in Kenmore. The full lineup can be found below, as well as on the festival website. But, here are just a few beers on the list that got my attention:

Mac & Jack’s C U Lator Barleywine – A barleywine by the makers of the uber-popular African Amber….at a summer beer fest? Sure, why not? Always good to see special release beers from the Redmond brewery.

Silver City Ziggy Zoggy Summer Lager – Fantastic unfiltered lager from Silver City. A bready malt base is backed up by a spicy hop bitterness. Easy drinking and perfect for summer.

Skookum Murder of Crows – You can sign me up for just about any bourbon barrel-aged stout.

Boundary Bay Ginger Peach – I remember a Ginger Peach combo from Diamond Knot at the fest a couple of years back that was a pleasant summer seasonal. A welcome return, but from a different brewery.

Black Raven Wisdom Seeker – Get there early for this rare release.

7 Seas Cascadian Dark Ale – One of the best examples of the style I’ve had.

Fremont Summer Solstice – This has become my go-to summer pale ale. Light and sessionable, with plenty of hop flavor and not too much bitterness. I can’t get enough of it.

Big Time Makisupa Stout – 6% ABV stout with Jamaican jerk spice. Hey Makisupa Policeman… (WABL members only beer.)
