Bremerton Gets Its Beer Festival

On Tuesday the Washington Beer Commission officially approved plans to hold a beer festival July 30 in Bremerton.

Eric Radovich, executive director at the commission, said the organization’s festival committee approved the Bremerton event on Jan. 6, which was the decision that pretty much solidified the Bremerton event. Tuesday’s board confirmation was a budget approval, which has Bremerton slated to host an event the commission hopes will break even.

“They were excited to do something on the peninsula,” Radovich said. “They think it’s going to be a terrific event, and an event that we can grow.”

By “grow,” he means making it an annual event. That is what has happened with other beer commission events. In 2010 Spokane hosted its first beer festival and is on the calendar again this year. Three of the other festivals are in Seattle and the fourth is in Kenmore. Bremerton becomes the sixth on the commission’s list.

Bremerton’s event will be from noon to 9 p.m. Pacific Avenue will be blocked between Burwell and Fifth Streets. Local companies will be among those showing off their brews. The event itself is probably going to focus on summertime beers.

  1. This is wonderful! I think this event will be great for Bremerton! What a nice incentive for Seattle folks to explore downtown and the festival before ferrying back over. Thanks for sharing so we can save the date!
