Several South Sound brewers will debut new beers this Saturday at the fourth annual Tacoma Craft Beer Festival.
Tacoma’s Engine House No. 9 will have a barrel blend that E9 brewer Shane Johns described as “made up of three beers aged in a Woodinville whiskey barrel.” Wingman Brewers, also of Tacoma, will debut its new Single Hop Sauvin IPA.
South Sound brewers comprise a healthy block of about a dozen out of 57 breweries that will pour Saturday at the festival that takes place on the Foss Waterway.
Attendees pay $30 at the door for a commemorative glass and 10 tasting tokens. The event is set up roam-around style where attendees pick and choose which beers to sample from 57 booths outfitted with multiple taps. Saturday’s event raises funds for the Tacoma Historical Society. Discounts are available for designated drivers and for retired and active military members.
