In less than two weeks, homebrewers and professional brewers from around the country will converge on Seattle to be a part of the 2012 National Homebrewers Conference. Though the conference sold out in less than 2 days, there are still ways to be a part of the festivities.
The Washington Homebrewers Association is organizing Pre-Conference Bus Tours running Tuesday and Wednesday, June 19th – 20th, around the Puget Sound. These bus tours go as far North as Bellingham and all the way down to Olympia. These tours are open to the public (you don’t have to have a conference pass) so all beer lovers are welcome. They cost between $40-45, stop at three breweries, and include lunch. It is a great chance to mingle with brewers from all over the country. For interestedin wine, there is even a wine and food pairing event right around the corner from the hotel on Friday, June 22nd. You can find out more about the tours at http://www.ahaconference.org/events/pre-conference-events/
All you have to do is buy a ticket, show up at the conference hotel (the Bellevue Regency Hyatt), and get ready for a great trip. (For free parking you can park at the Bellevue Square Mall).
Ticket sales will end June 17th so get your tickets ASAP! We look forward to seeing a ton of homebrewers and beer aficionados very soon!
