Commonly known as the PNA Winter Beer Taste, this festival is an anomaly since all ticket sales go toward the Phinney Neighborhood Association.

The Phinney Neighborhood Association (PNA) was founded in 1980, with a $200K federal block grant to develop programs to serve residents living between 65th and 75th Streets, from Aurora Avenue to 3rd Avenue NW. As time went on, many community members brought ideas and energy to the PNA, forming the basis for new activities and an expanded geographic scope. Members now live in many Seattle neighborhoods and join for a variety of reasons.

Unlike previous years, this year's PNA Winter Taste will host two preview classes focusing on "How to Brew Beer" and "How to Taste Beer". Word to the wise, these are not included in the cost of your admission to the PNA Winter Taste. But if you read the fine print listed below you will see that each event will cost you around between $20 and $30. But if you are will spend either $55 (for PNA Members) or $85 (General Public), you can come to both classes and the beer festival.

Here are the details after using some simple "copy-paste".
