Festival Preview: WA: 2/22 12pm-5pm Washington brewers open their doors for WA Beer Open House

Starting at 12pm, running through 5pm, breweries throughout Washington celebrate local beer, with the Washington Beer Open House. Similar to Oregon's Zwickelmania, this Saturday encourages those willing to brave the elements (and traffic) to get acquainted with their local brewery. With over 70 breweries participating, there is definitely a glut of beers to choose from.

Historically an event like this showcases not only the beers you see throughout your town, but also beers only available at the brewery. Plus for a few of the participating locations it's an opportunity to enjoy some snacks, entrees, or dessert. 

So rather than bore you with mini-biographies for each brewery, I will do the 'copy-past thing and let you use your smartphone, tablet, or desktop computer to select a brewery.

Choose wisely and above all know your limits. I don't want to hear about you on the evening news.
