Holiday Ale Festival
The only beer festival in the Northwest to be held outdoors in the dark, cold and often wet month of December, the Holiday Ale Festival is truly distinctive. Despite chilly temperatures and often-inclement weather outside, attendees stay warm and dry under a large clear tent that covers the venue while allowing for views of the city lights. Gas fireplaces and heaters create an inviting and cozy ambience under the boughs of one of the region's largest decorated Christmas trees.
Twenty-six potent winter ales are featured at the event, all of which are created specifically to bring warmth and cheer to the holiday season. The beers are rich, robust and full of complex flavors. They range from Imperial IPAs, Belgians and Barley Wines to Winter Warmers, Scotch Ales and Stouts. Many have been seasoned with spices, and enhanced with ingredients such as honey, cranberries, ginseng, and espresso beans. Festival highlights include on-site food; craft vendors; beer apparel and merchandise; a complimentary root beer garden; mead tasting; and seasonal background music.
