Seattle-ite’s will see their maligned Bremerton borough brought back life this Saturday, July 23rd, with the first annual Bremerton Summer Brewfest. Bremerton hasn’t been on the visitor’s hotlist for a while, but it has an endearing rustic feel to it which endears itself to visitors. In terms of economic revitalization, this summer beerfest plan is quite shrewd. I mean, everyone waits for Octoberfest to hit the various breweries and microbrews of the Northwest, but when do you want a beer the most? On a hot summer day, right?
Bremerton stepped up to the line, then, and offers 50+ beers from 23 Washington State breweries. And since the Northwest is well-known as a beer connoisseur’s heaven, you should delight in getting to try some lesser-known tipples, all corralled into one prime spot on the Sound.
Take the ferry across the Sound and be prepared to spend a day in the sun drinking from the likes of Blokken, Silver City, Hood Canal, Sound, Slippery Pig, and other Northwestern favorites. It’s about $20 at the door, but that’s less than a night out on the town and the event runs from noon to 9pm, so you’ll be sure to get your money’s worth. Just be sure to get an early seat back on the return ferry….
