Tacoma Craft Beer Festival tickets are now on sale

By Michael Swan on August 23, 2010


There is nothing like the Tacoma Craft Beer Festival anywhere on earth. OK, maybe that's an exaggeration, but it's pretty freakin' cool nonetheless. Featuring 100 beers from more than 50 breweries, it is the largest craft beer fest in the South Sound, and a trip to the Foss Waterway Seaport Oct. 1-2 should be on the life lists of every beer lover in Western Washington.

The TCBF has added a few items for its second year run. Aside from the fact that it's now a two-day event with the addition of Friday night, the festival will spotlight cask ale with their "Firkin Friday at the Fest" booth Friday night featuring a dozen fresh firkins of cask ale, all simultaneously tapped at 6 p.m., for one night only. Saturday, they'll spotlight the canned craft beer movement with the "TCBF Canned Craft Beer Garden for those wishing to imbibe more than 4 ounces at a time.

Tickets are currently available online for $18 here, which is $7 less than the door price. Military with ID will only pay $20 at the door. A two-day pass is $35. Admission includes a souvenir taster glass, plus five six tasting tokens. Additional 4-ounce pours are $1.50.
