(WA) Brouwer's Cafe (And Bottleworks) Hopfest Is Coming, 9/10 Starting At 11 AM

image of Bottleworks & Brouwer's Cafe, co-owner Matt Bonney in Yakima, courtesy of Bottleworks' website Seattle, WA - If you don't live in Yakima, then chances are you don't know that the Hop Harvest is here. Each year Yakima (along with Idaho and Oregon) harvest their allotment of hops, thereby covering over 75% of the country in a pleasing, floral aroma.

Around the same time, Brouwer's Cafe offers up there nod to this annual tradition, with the arrival of Hopfest. With a start time of 11:00 AM on Friday September 10th, you are encouraged to show up, grab a bar seat or table, and drink till your tongue is numb from beer. So far the list is looking pretty awesome with beers ranging from the traditional India Pale to the new and interesting Cascadian Dark Ales & India Black Ales (and Cider?). We have included the list for your review.

Additionally, it has been announced, that Bottleworks won't let Brouwer's take all the glory, as they will be dedicating all 11 handles to all things hoppy. So whether you don't feel up to heading into Fremont or Wallingford seems a bit much, you have two choices to pick from. Don't wait too long though, because like all things, this won't last.
