WA Craft Beer Summit invites you to learn, network, celebrate



Tickets are still available for the WA Craft Beer Summit – November 2nd and 3rd. Last call for tickets is Tuesday, Oct. 31st.

“Learn, Network, and Celebrate WA Craft Beer!” That’s the idea behind The Washington Craft Beer Summit, which takes place in Puyallup on Friday, November 3rd. The Summit features a trade show, beer tastings, and a series of educational breakout sessions covering topics of value and interest for anyone in the craft beer industry. You can get your tickets here. You can see the schedule of breakout sessions here.

On top of all that, there’s a Welcome Party on Thursday, November 2nd at 7 Seas Brewing in Tacoma, which is a great opportunity to network and socialize with fellow craft beer industry folks. And to wrap things up, following the Summit on Friday, the official Washington Beer Awards Ceremony and Dinner.

The main event happens on Friday, November 3rd at the Washington State Fair Events Center—the Mattress Firm Showplex. All tickets to the summit include access to the expansive trade floor, the keynote speech by John Mallett*, access to 16 educational sessions, a catered lunch, and craft beer tastings. Also, your Summit ticket includes a discount on your ticket to the Washington Beer Awards Ceremony and Dinner — it’s an add-on to your Summit ticket.
