Spinnakers is hosting their Spring Cask Beer Festival this weekend, Saturday March 20th. Alas, I am too late in writing about it, for it is already sold out. It would have cost $30 for entry, souvenir glass, and three beer tickets, plus $1 for every extra beer ticket after that. It will be good times for those lucky enough to have tickets. The lineup is said to include beers from Driftwood, Phillips, Lighthouse, Vancouver Island, Central City, Elysian, Deschutes and more.
If you missed out on Spinnakers, don’t get too down because the Washington Cask Beer Festival is the following Saturday, March 27th in Seattle. For $35, this one includes twenty tastes to drink from your very own commemorative cup. I went last year and had a really good times. With so many free tastes and such a stellar beer lineup, my group had a hard time keeping it together. We had a really good time until things got out of hand. Id’ say the Washington Cask Beer Festival is the best beer event in the Northwest, so don’t miss this one.
For those of you not willing to make the trip south of the border, you’ll soon have an opportunity to party in your hometown. Vancouver Craft Beer Week is happening May 10-16, but I still haven’t heard what it will entail. That being said, I’m sure it will be super rad and something to look out for.
