The Scotch and Beer Festival returns to Seattle April 2020

Mar 10 2020, 2:47 pm

Put on those bunny ears and hop into Fremont Studios, because Seattle’s biggest spring beer festival, the Scotch & Beer Fest, is returning this Easter weekend.

The 21+ event takes place on April 10 and 11 and will feature seminars, over 50 types of beer, and a tax-free bottle shop.

Guests of the Scotch & Beer Fest will be given tasting tokens that can be used in exchange for pours of beer, spirits, and even hard kombucha. A commemorative five-ounce tasting glass will be handed out to each festival-goer as they enter the tasting to be used for the pours.

Last year’s event featured over 50 beers from over 20 breweries. While the lineup for this year’s beers is not yet released, we’ve been told to expect everything from ciders to hard seltzers and kombucha.

Tickets to the event start at $20 for designated drivers and $30 for those looking to partake in the boozing. Proceeds from each ticket benefit Youth Experiential Training Institute (YETI), which uses the outdoors as a tool to create meaningful, adventure-based experiences for students aged 5 to 18 in South King County from diverse ethnic, religious, and socio-economic backgrounds.

With coronavirus on the rise, King County Health Officials suggest that those who are pregnant, are over the age of 60, or have a chronic medical condition or weakened immune system take extra precautions and stay away from large groups of people as much as possible, including public places with lots of people and large gatherings where there will be close contact with others.
