(Seattle, WA) ... – The 19th Annual Fremont Oktoberfest is taking over two city blocks of Seattle’s famed Fremont neighborhood, September 18-20, transforming it into the “Center of the Brewniverse” and playing host to 20,000 guests set to enjoy 100 craft and seasonal brews from 50 different breweries.
The lineup represents the full spectrum of beer options, including IPAs, Oktoberfest beers, ciders, and imports.
