On Tap: Beer, cider makers bring their goods to Spokane Arena’s second Brewers Festival – Buy Beer and Cider Online
The Spokane Brewers Festival returns for a second year Aug. 4-5 with a few new wrinkles.
Forty breweries and cideries will pour in the Spokane Arena parking lot, up from last year’s 34. It’s a week earlier than last year’s event, to avoid scheduling conflicts.
Ticket pricing has changed. Last year you bought a tasting mug and wristband good for both days for $7, and drink tickets for $1 each. This year, it’s a package deal including 13 tickets for $25 in advance, $30 at the door (extra tickets still $1). Advance ticket fees range from $1 at the Arena box office to $4 online, so that’s more a convenience than a bargain.
And in maybe the biggest difference, the Arena has partnered with the hunger relief organization Feeding Washington. That not only adds a charitable aspect, but under state liquor law allows brewery employees to pour their own beer, unlike last year – one of the biggest complaints by brewers and customers alike.
Hired servers simply “don’t know the beer,” the Arena’s Matt Gibson said. “We’ve learned the ropes and we’re moving forward with a bigger and better festival.”
One thing hasn’t changed: Like last year, temperatures are expected to top 90 degrees. Tents will again provide shade, Gibson said, and misting fans will be better positioned to cover more ground.
“It was real hot and sticky last year, but everybody seemed to be smiling,” he said.
Area breweries signed up for this year include Badass, Bellwether, Bennidito’s, Big Barn, Black Label, Downdraft, Four-Eyed Guys, Hopped Up, Hunga Dunga, Iron Goat, Little Spokane, New Boundary, No-Li, Northern, Orlison, Post Falls, Rants & Raves, River City, Steam Plant, Ten Pin, Top Frog, TT’s Old Iron, V Twin, Waddell’s and Young Buck.
