In celebration of our community’s brewing history, the City of Tumwater and the Tumwater Downtown Association – in partnership with presenting sponsor O Bee Credit Union – will host Tumwater’s 6th Annual Tumwater Artesian Brewfest. The event will take place from 1:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Saturday, August 18, 2018 at the Tumwater Valley Golf Course, in the shadow of the former Olympia Brewery. With over 10 acres of flat manicured grass, the golf course driving range provides a unique outdoor venue for beer tasting, music, activities, food and fun.

Fifty Pacific Northwest brewers will attend this year’s festival as well as several cideries, one local winery and two local distilleries. The event will also include a variety of community booths, a wide range of food options, and vendors with beer-related products for purchase. “Keys on Main” will perform two sets of their interactive dueling piano show on the main stage. Our contests and activities such as super-sized beer pong, a helicopter golf ball drop, and beer stein holding contests – along with a few new attractions – make for fantastic entertainment.          

The Tumwater Artesian Brewfest celebrates the long history of beer making in Tumwater and the craft behind today’s outstanding beer and craft beverage professionals. While the event offers Olympia Beer on tap, this festival focuses on local brewers and vintners. According to Brewfest organizer Chuck Denney, “For us, it’s an opportunity to bring together a variety of partners and host a fantastic community event. For breweries, cideries, wineries, and distilleries, it’s an opportunity to share their talents and products with a regional audience from throughout the South Sound.”

New to the event this year is the Collision Center “Brew-mentation” Tent (What’s brew-mentation, you ask? Think brewing plus experimentation!). Six brewers will be featured and attendees will have the opportunity to meet the brewers, taste specialty brews (that you can’t get anywhere else!), and learn about the art of brewing craft beer. Breweries will rotate every hour.
