The 15th Annual Strange Brewfest returns to Port Townsend this weekend to celebrate those crazy, innovative, outside-the-box brews!


So what exactly classifies a beer as "strange"? Think herbs, fruits, coffee beans and other enhancements. I hear Barhop Brewing Company in Port Angeles has brewed up their Oreo Speedwagon Imperial Stout, which is dry-hopped with 47 pounds of Oreos. WHAT?! 


Plus, the festival will be honoring women in the brewing industry this year, and the 2019 lineup is PACKED with nearly 40 heavy hitting breweries and cideries. 


There is a superhero theme this year, recognizing brewers for the super powers behind our beer sipping experiences! Yes, costumes are encouraged, so don't be shy about dressing up for Strange Brewfest


Tickets are $35 at the door, which includes admission to both Friday's and Saturday's festivities. You also get a commemorative tasting glass, 4 tasting tokens and incredible live entertainment, including one of my personal favorites, The Scott Pemberton Band! Trust me, you've never seen anyone play guitar quite like him.


Have fun this weekend, please drink responsibly, and if you need a safe ride home, they have a guy - call Sean!


Happy Adventuring,


Taryn Daly
