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, The Spokane Brewers Festival is proud to announce that proceeds from this year’s festival will go towards supporting the mission of the Wishing Star Foundation!

Established in 1983, Wishing Star is the oldest wish granting organization in Washington. Founded by a local teacher who was inspired by the passing of one her first grade students to cancer, Wishing Star grants wishes to children with life-threatening illnesses between the ages of 3 and 21, living in Spokane, the Tri-Cities and local outlying areas. On average, Wishing Star grants close to 40 wishes a year and will celebrate their 35th anniversary this October.

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.
