Take A Sneak Peek At The 7 Breweries Of #Redfestival

Taryn's Wreckreation Guide

September 6, 2017

If you're anything like me, you're deeply passionate about the PNW beer scene. Thanks to 7 regional breweries, you can get a nice taste of this collective craft brew excellence this Saturday at The Mens Room Redfestival


First, let me start by saying this event is the first of its kind, incorporating local bands, breweries and all out bad-assery, and tickets are only $15.


Saturday's line-up of heavy-hitters looks a little something like this:


1. Elysian Brewing Company - Seattle. They are the makers of Mens Room Original Black, Mens Room Gold, Mens Room Black (here in just a few months!) and a super special Dirty German Beer, jah!

Thanks to friend of the show, Tom for supporting our local @fisherhousefdtn! Grab a pint at this Saturday's #Redfestival with us! Tickets: bit.ly/2uKCA57

2. Skookum Brewery - Arlington. In the last few months, they've become one of the area's premier IPA hot-spots, creating unique and unthinkable brews for hop heads like me. 

Purple Clouds ON TAP when we open! A far out IPA brewed with loads of oats, puffed wild rice and lactose. Finished on house puréed blueberries and whole vanilla beans. Hopped generously with mosaic, citra and simcoe. A soft, luscious, mouthfeel along with restrained bitterness and semi-sweet finish make this beer sooooooo crushable. Notes of jam, mild citrus, breakfast grains, loads of fruit and your favorite childhood (fruity) cereals. See you soon for a glass or crowler/growler to go!

3. Fish Brewing - Olympia. Although their home is in Pierce County, you may have been to their taproom in Woodinville or found their beer east of the mountains in Leavenworth.

Checking out the local places. I'm excited about moving to this area!! This place is amazing! If you find yourself in Olympia, you DEFINITELY have to stop here! #localpub #coldbeer #greatservice #craftbeer #pnw #upperleftusa #fishtale

4. Cole Street Brewery - Enumclaw. #Redfestival's hometown brewing company offers visitors an incredible view of Mt. Rainier and a seasonal beer menu that will blow your mind!

5. Silver City Brewery - Bremerton. Tucked between the Sound and the Olympics, Silver City is true to the PNW with love for the hustle and bustle of the city AND outdoor adventure!

6. No-Li Brewhouse - Spokane. Representing the eastern side of Washington at #Redfestival, No-Li's people happen to be Washington State University Cougars, just like yours truly. GO COUGS!

This smoke is a bummer, so we decided to roll out a very special beer for all our No-Li fans today. Introducing Blackfill 2.0 — a recreation of our very first barrel-aged beer. It's a Wrecking Ball Imperial Stout aged for two years in a wheat whiskey barrel from our neighbors at Dry Fly Distilling.

7. Mt. Tabor Brewing - Portland. The out-of-staters have a pub right across the river in Vancouver, WA, but their beer is made with love in PDX, a true beer-lover's city! 

The new brewpub from @mt_tabor_brewing in Felida Village is the perfect introduction to the weekend -- (You sure know how to pick your IPAs, @cascadialife! #regram) #DiscoverVanUSA #VancouverUSA #Brewcouver

There will be both 8 oz pours and full 16 oz pours available at Saturday's #Redfestival, so try a few and find a favorite while you hang with The Mens Room, rock out to local bands and watch performers do all sorts of wild things! See you this weekend, bitcholas!


Happy Adventuring,
