Calling all Seattle-ites: Come Celebrate the Holiday Season at the Winter Beer Festival!
The Washington Beer Commission will present its 4th Annual Winter Beer Festival on December 5-6 at the Hale's Palladium at Hale's Ales Brewery & Pub and winter beer fans are in for a great treat. This year participating breweries are invited to bring multiple styles of beer. The result is the biggest beer lineup ever, almost doubling last year's list.
A new addition to the festival this year is a beer and chocolate pairings in partnership with Chocolate Box, a premium chocolate purveyor in downtown Seattle, adding another dimension to winter beer appreciation!
Hale's Ales Brewpub will serve up its fine pub cuisine straight from its kitchen to complement the bold flavors of the winter beers.

WABL Beer is brewed by a different WA brewery for each Commission festival and is available exclusively to WABL members. In addition, WABL members will be admitted one hour only both Friday and Saturday during WABL Hour when they can have the entire festival all to themselves.
The Winter Beer Festival is a fund raiser for the Washington Beer Commission, the first commission of its kind in the nation. Washington Beer is recognized internationally as being the highest quality thanks to the dynamic energy and creativity of the brewers and fresh ingredients available in our state. Established in July 2007 the Commission represents all 90+ breweries in Washington State and its mission is to ensure that more beer enjoyed in Washington state is made by its own craft brewers, using ingredients from our state's agricultural industry.
