New beer festival coming to Shoreline in August

There’s always room for another beer festival. Today we want to tell you about the inaugural 4-Corners Brewfest in Shoreline, WA. The event takes place on Saturday, August 13th from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Innis Arden Clubhouse. Twenty Washington breweries will pour more than 40 beers at the event, which is a fundraiser for the The Washington Beer Blog is happy to welcome the festival as our newest sponsor.

Steve Kerr, speaking on behalf of, told us that they modeled the event after beer tasting events organized by the Phinney Neighborhood Association in Seattle: the PNA Summer Beer Taste and the PNA Winter Beer Taste. Like those events, the 4-Corners Brewfest benefits the neighborhoods that the organization serves, but it also provides the larger community with a fun event.

Last Saturday we attended the PNA Summer Beer Taste. It was a great event and we already look forward to the PNA Winter Beer Taste. If the 4-Corners Brewfest is anything like those events—and by all indications it will be—then it will be an equally successful beer festival.




The 4-Corners Brewfest will feature live music by Takes All Kinds, a Bellingham-based rock-n-blues band. Food, provided by local restaurants, is included in the cost of admision. The event also gives the crowd an opportunity to vote for their favorite beers. Local pubs and bars will then be encouraged to put the winning beers on tap.
