The fine folks at The Red Hot are spearheading the first (hopefully annual) TACOMA CRAFT BEER FESTIVAL. It's happening today, Saturday, October 3rd, and runs from noon until 9pm. It's an indoor event with live music, food vendors, and plenty of unique, quality beers to taste. Bonus points if you bike there. Don't forget your pretzel necklace and your ID (you must be 21 to attend.)

The News Tribune did an article on Wednesday that highlighted a few of the brewers that will be there. Do yourself a favor and visit the Schooner EXACT booth. Good stuff.

I need to find a local beer joint that gives bonus points for arriving by bike. Hope you had a chance to enjoy some kid-free time enjoying what sound like an awfully fun event.

It was great. Cyclists certainly had the best parking options. For next year, someone floated the idea of giving an extra tasting token to folks that biked there.
