South Sound IPA Festival Oct. 18

Tacoma, Wash.

Washington Beer Commission invites you to the inaugural South Sound IPA Festival on Oct. 18 at Union Station in downtown Tacoma, Wash. There will be two sessions for this event – the first from noon-4 p.m. and the second from 5:30-9:30 p.m.

The South Sound IPA Festival will turn Union Station into a haven of hops, featuring some of the best India Pale Ales (IPAs) to be found anywhere, along with fresh hop beers, and many other “hop forward” creations. In all, there will be 24 Washington breweries represented and at least 48 delicious craft beers, most measuring quite high on the International Bitterness Units (IBUs) scale.

The event is expected to sell out so advance ticket purchase is highly recommended.
