Raise a glass to local brewers at Tacoma's Craft Beer Festival

The Fourth Annual Tacoma Craft Beer Festival will be held on Sat., Sept. 1, between 11 a.m. and 8 p.m. at 21st Street Park, located at 2101 Dock Street, in downtown Tacoma.

The event aims to bring together those that are passionate about craft beer and to further build community while promoting small breweries. According to organizers, ticket sales shut down at 4:30 p.m. last year due to the availability of beer on hand. This year, however, organizers say they are increasing the number of brewers from 41 to over 50.

Tickets are $30 at the door. Military personnel (active duty, retired, veterans, and reserves) can purchase a $15 ticket at the door by showing current and valid military identification. Tickets are redeemable for a 5.5-ounce commemorative taster glass and 10 tasting tokens. Additional pours are $1.50 each. The festival will also include games, food, and live entertainment.

Funds raised will benefit the Tacoma Historical Society, a volunteer-supported, charitable, nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation, promotion and presentation of the history of the City of Tacoma and its people. More information is online here.
