The Washington Brewers Guild produces two major beer festivals each year: Winter Beer Fest and Cask Beer Festival.  You can feel good about attending WBG festivals, as your admission dollars go directly to supporting local brewers!

The WBG works to protect WA brewers and ensure choice for WA beer lovers.  We thank you for your support!

Cask Beer Festival

Experience the artistry of craft brewing in the form of traditional cask-conditioned beer. The Washington Cask Beer Festival features one-of-a-kind handcrafted cask-conditioned beers from over 40 Washington breweries. To remain true to the spirit of “real ale” all beers are conditioned naturally without artificially introducing CO2 into the cask and will be poured by gravity or via a beer engine.

Session 1: Noon- 4 pm
Session 2: 5:30-9:30 pm
Separate tickets required for each session.
