Just in: Bremerton’s Brewfest returns July 12

Downtown Bremerton will once again turn into a giant beer garden on July 12, with the return of the summer Brewfest. The details are still being ironed out, but I confirmed the date today with Washington Beer Commission Executive Director Eric Radovich.

The commission, a quasi-governmental board that promotes the state’s hops production (and therefore beer) has held the event in Bremerton for three years running. It drew more than 2,700 people here in 2013. It shuts down part of Pacific Avenue and part of Fourth Street for the revelry.

The beer commission had contemplated moving the event to Tacoma this year, but many of Kitsap County’s brewers and beer supporters journeyed to Shoreline for the commission’s meeting Tuesday night. Long story short, the festival is here to stay after some impassioned arguments from our West Sound brewery faithful.

The commission is made up of six brewers and one liaison with the state’s Department of Agriculture.

For the longer story, look to Thursday’s Kitsap Sun.

    I am so glad that people ventured to Shoreline to fight for our one tourism draw. Had I known about it, I’d have gone too. Thanks to all of you advocates!

    I hope we’re in town to finally enjoy this event from the other side of the table. Thanks to our microbrew aficionados, friends, business owners, and other advocates who pushed to keep the fest in Bremerton for another year.
