What does a Slippery Pig and an Iron Horse have in common? They are both Washington Breweries and were at the Summer Brewfest in Bremerton on Saturday. Over 20 breweries were on site in Downtown Bremerton pouring about 60 different brews.
Most of the choices were light and summery ales while some were more on the experimental side. For example, can you guess what a beer brewed with beets would taste like? Grove Street Brewhouse brought the intriguing concoction named “Just BEET IT.” It made me want to break out in a Michael Jackson routine. Some of my favorites were Valholl’s Valkyrie Red, Schooner EXACT’s Raspberry-Wheat and Dick’s Golden Ale. Silver City brought out a Randall to infuse their IPA with fresh tropical fruit flavors.
I wish I could have sampled more but my liver wouldn’t allow it. For a complete list of the breweries that were at the festival click here. If you weren’t able to make it to this event, you can check out upcoming brewfests by going to the Washington Beer website.
