Giving a Chest Bump to Washington Craft Breweries in the 509.Press Release:
ELLENSBURG, Wash. (April 14, ,2015) - Iron Horse Brewery is announcing, almost the same exact thing as last year except different, which is that they plan to host the Eastern Washington Brewfest in Central Washington which most Westsiders refer to as Eastern Washington on Friday, May 15th from 5:00pm to 10pm. That’s 5.15.15 5:00pm to (5:00pm + 5 hours) The brewfest will take place in and around Iron Horse’s downtown location, [the pub] with tastings offered from 10.5 different breweries located within the 509 area code.
“Eastern Washington has mostly small craft brewers and finding their products in your home market can be hard at times. Unless you live in Ellensburg on May 15th, because then you will be able to find those rare beers, and in case you were wondering, it’s not just a coincidence, they will be found at our E WA Brewfest,” said Greg Parker, general manager of Iron Horse Brewery.
The Brewfest, Itself.
This brewfest is targeted towards craft beer enthusiasts as well as those who believe that being lame is never an option. The 4-5 o’clock hour will host area restaurant and bar reps allowing for participating craft breweries to showcase their product. “Our goal is to help connect Eastern Washington craft brewers with local bars and restaurants so that, hopefully, there is even more craft beer flowing from the taps. Kind of like Tinder, but without the awkwardness and rejection”, said Jared Vallejo, director of marketing for Iron Horse Brewery. ‘I have been to a lot of festivals, and I can tell you this is my favorite one,“ said Ross Chalstrom, Interloper of Press Release Quotes.
