The Washington Brewers Guild returns with its annual Winter Beer Festival on Friday, December 4 and Saturday, December 5 at the Hangar 30 in Magnuson Park in Northeast Seattle. This winter beer fest features a wide array of winter seasonal beers from 54 Washington Guild member breweries that will be serving over 160 beers.
Winter Beer Festival is known for its extensive seasonal offerings from local breweries and this year’s event is no exception. The beer lineup includes many big, dark, robust and well-aged beers. In addition with the beer names like Party like it’s Winter 2009! and Old Toe Jam Barleywine, it is undoubtedly one of the most fun, high-spirited beer festivals around. The brewers get to show their playful side by using holiday-inspired ingredients such as candy canes, cranberries, nuts, and molasses in their beers, and also by embellishing their booths with over-the-top decorations, turning the humble Hangar into a dazzling holiday spectacle.
Here is the 2015 Winter Beer Festival beer lineup.
