Not that I'm griping, but why are you doing this?
Spokane Brewers Festival is the ideal event for anyone who loves craft beer made right here in the Inland Northwest. With a laid-back attitude and a full complement of award-winning beers, the Festival reflects the craft essence of Spokane and the surrounding region with this mantra in mind: DRINK LOCAL.
PLUS, this event benefits FEEDING WASHINGTON, the statewide hunger-relief organization helps the 1 in 7 people in Washington State who struggle with food insecurity. Feeding Washington sources fresh produce from farmers, packers and shippers across the state and distributes it to their two members, Second Harvest and Food Lifeline. Feeding Washington rescues over 3 million pounds of fruits and vegetables each month. Through their two members, healthy food is delivered to over 525 food banks and meal centers throughout the state. Your support at the Spokane Brewers Festival will help source fresh produce to feed our state’s most vulnerable population.
This is a prime opportunity to sample and learn about a variety of craft beer styles from the Inland Northwest. More than 30 local craft breweries from Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho offer a plethora of styles of handcrafted brews. Our focus is craft beer but there's more than sampling involved. The Festival features live music and an assortment of local food vendors. The River City Root Beer Garden will also be on site with complimentary handcrafted root beer for designated drivers.
Due to a decision made by the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board, the Spokane Brewers Festival will not be allowed to permit anyone under the age of 21 to the grounds in 2017. We are currently working with local Liquor Control Board officers and the state of Washington to change this decision at future festivals. We apologize for this inconvenience.
For anyone who has already purchased their tickets and is inconvenienced by this change, please call the Spokane Arena Box Office at 509-279-7455 to discuss a refund.
For any additional questions or concerns, please contact the Spokane Arena at 509-279-7000.
Spokane Brewers Festival strongly encourages responsible drinking, and urges patrons to take advantage of Spokane Transit Authority bus travel or ride-share options. Go by bus or grab a ride, just don't drink and drive.
