With over 100 options to choose from, this might be the largest concentration of Belgian-style or Belgian-influenced beers outside of Belgium.
As it was in 2018, Belgian Fest is held at Fisher Pavilion on the grounds of the Seattle Center. Should you choose to attend, you will have the option to purchase a ticket for session one, from noon to 4 pm, session two, from 5:30 pm to 9:30 pm, or if you prefer both sessions. Should you choose to attend both sessions, The Washington Beer Commission reminds you to drink responsibly and whenever possible use alternative transportation other than personal transport.
