I’m not the one you want to call if you need to ask technical questions about beer. If I’m going to drink it, I’m perfectly happy with a $3 Rainier, thanks. HOWEVER, when it comes to the winter months, I do tend to get a hankering for those cheery holiday ales and dark, stormy porters. Around Christmas time, I’m an overgrown toddler. I absolutely love it, and I’m constantly on the hunt for new activities to boost the holiday spirit. To that end, I ventured into Seattle’s Winter Beer Fest last year, and even for an uneducated attendee like me, it was still really interesting and fun.

Bonus points: the event is put on by the Washington Brewers Guild, and all proceeds benefit local brewers!

I purchased tickets in advance ($30), which not only provided my admission, but also a tasting glass and ten 4-oz tastes! I went with a couple of friends and we were feeling pretty silly by the end. There were food trucks speckled about, so we got some grub and took a little walk in the park. Perfect way to kick off the Christmas season.

Insider Tip

They offer special $5 admission at the door for designated drivers. Don’t drink and drive!
