The Olympia Brew Fest is an annual summer beer festival that takes place at the Port Plaza in Olympia, WA. It features 30+ hand-picked, northwest breweries and over 60 different beers. Proceeds from the festival benefit the Thurston County Chamber Foundation Small Business Development (Incubator) Program. Come and celebrate Olympia's fine brewing heritage! The date for the 2018 Olympia Brew Fest is August 4.
Also, to answer the two most common questions we get:
- The Liquor Control Board does not allow minors at the event, even if they are designated drivers.
- The venue owner does not allow pets, except documented service animals of course, at the festival.
