2023 Washington Winter Beer Fest Returns To Seattle

The annual Washington Winter Beer Fest makes its return to Seattle next weekend from Friday, December 15 – Saturday, December 16. It will once again take place at the at Hangar 30 inside Warren G. Magnuson Park over two sessions.

It was a bit of surprise to see the festival return this year as the Washington Beer Commission, the non-profit that ran the festival ran out of money this year. Now the Washington Brewers Guild has taken the responsibility to run and promote the festival, something that the Washington Beer Commission formerly did. Regardless of who is actually running the festival, we are happy to see its return to Seattle.

Each December, the Washington Winter Beer Festival brings together breweries from across the state to showcase its beers, many that are winter seasonals. With two sessions, one on Friday, December 15 taking place from 6:30-9:30pm and the other on Saturday, December 16 from 3:00-6:00pm, there will be plenty of beer to discover and enjoy! There will also be a VIP session each day that begins one hour before general admission opens.
