Festivals

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!

2019 Cask Beer Festival will take place on March 23rd at the Seattle Center Exhibition Hall. More info and ticket sales here.

Information on participating breweries and beer list coming soon!

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

2019 Cask Beer Festival

The 20th edition of the Washington Cask Beer Festival features one-of-a-kind handcrafted cask-conditioned beers from over 40 Washington breweries. NEW THIS YEAR: there will be a selection of wood barrel aged and wild ales available at the festival.

Experience the artistry of craft brewing in the form of traditional cask-conditioned beer. 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.
