Get ready sour ale fans as the 12th annual Puckerfest returns to Belmont Station from Thursday, July 19th through Tuesday, July 24th.

For 2018 Belmont Station will bring the tartest beers from across the Pacific Northwest and beyond. A few breweries making a return to the Station include Ale ApothecaryBlock 15Double MountainUpright, de Garde, and Breakside. The popular beer destination will also bring in a few new breweries including E9LibertineTRVEParadoxStoupFloodlandHill FarmsteadWunderkammer BierThe Rare Barrel , The Good Beer Company and more.

Belmont Station is changing this year’s Puckerfest up a bit. In years past the beer bar had themed days, however for 2018 it will have only three days of pre-planned themed events. In doing so Belmont Station will rotate through a large assortment of tart, sour beers during the six-day Puckerfest. Each day the Station plans on having 20 of its 25 taps devoted to beers that will make you pucker. Want to know what is on tap, check out the Station’s Live Draft List.
