Time to start thinking about Strange Brewfest 2011! This festival is a celebration of the unique spirit that the now-closed Water Street Brewing once encompassed. Strange Brewfest is a chance to see the creativity of Washington’s wonderful brewing community.
If this is the first time that you ever read this blog, you might not know about our affinity for a former brew house known as Water Street Brewing. The iconic pub once ruled the streets of Port Townsend, Washington, with incredible food, heartwarming charm and of course – excellent beer. If you need to catch up on why we loved (and still love) it so very much – read this post.
Of course, many of us were concerned that Water Street’s closing spelled the end to this event. But Nina and Mark, the committed owners of the former pub, have made sure that Strange Brewfest continues on!
The event will span across three days this year and be held down the street from the original location at the American Legion Hall. The event will no longer be a Water Street Brewing event, but Nina and Mark will serve as consultants, to ensure that the festival does not lose it luster.
So, book your hotel for January 28-30, 2011. There are a list of suggested hotels on the Strange Brewfest website. Be sure to peruse the rest of their website to find out more info on the event.
