Celebrate the roots of Washington’s brewing industry and sample selections from 40 craft breweries as well as local wineries and cideries at Tumwater Artesian Brewfest on Saturday, August 22 from 1-8 p.m. Sip suds from around the state along with the original Olympia beer on tap while enjoying lawn games, music and food vendors in the shadow of the former Olympia Brewery at the Tumwater Valley Golf Course Driving Range (4611 Tumwater Valley Drive SE).
“This third annual event has quickly become a local favorite and we’re thrilled to see the groundswell of support and excitement around the state,” said Becci Welsh, partnership development director of Visit Olympia. “We’re fortunate to have such a dynamic craft brewing industry in Washington, and what better place to celebrate it than the birthplace of the state’s most iconic beer brand.”
