We’ve arrived at the Vancouver Brewfest Week! The weather looks great and we have a full lineup of fun for you Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Let’s just start out by mentioning one last Bear Pong practice Thursday night at the Riverview Six to Sunset Concert Series at Esther Short park in the Beer Garden. Guest tap Thursday is Loowit – check the Beer Calendar link above for beer details – it’s a great one!

Did you see 52 breweries are joining us to help raise money for 3 great charities here in Clark County? Each one is bringing 2 beers. That’s over 100 beers for you to sample!

For those who know someone that doesn’t appreciate beer like we do, we have 10 ciders, a well rounded wine selection at the Hazel Dell Grocery Outlet wine tent, and a Tiki Rum Bar with 15+ spirits. Check out the distillers page and you’ll see we brought in Rum from Maui you can compare to locally produced Rum and then jump over to the Bar and get yourself a rum drink from the marvelous mixologist Katie from Grocery Cocktail and Red Olive events.

We’ve turned down the music volume and you’ll be able to have conversations with friends while listening to music. We’d like to thank Al Jones for taking over the sound system duties this year and providing us a great Brewfest with music.

Our game of the festival this year is Bear Pong. See it at BearPong.com.

We’ve collected great prizes from local breweries and restaurants to win each day in the tournament bracket play. Winners advance to finals and first place will take home $100 for single and $100 for team Champions. Stop by and say hi to the Storm City Roller Derby girls and they’ll show you how to play and sign you up. It’s free to play and win; just because we like to have some fun!

We’ve added a best of show beer competition this year.

Pick up a map and tear off the voting portion and vote for your top 3 beers of the Brewfest. We’ll post the winners Sunday morning. First 5,000 votes are counted. WIth the exception of The Alpine Outdoor living beer zone by the front gate, All the breweries are in alphabetical order, clockwise, starting at tent/zone 2.

Did you know there is a Veteran owned brewery in Clark County? Yep, Mill City Brew Werks. They also made the official beer this year, “Domination Blonde”. Stop by their booth close to the front gate and try that one for sure!

Well behaved dogs are welcome and we’ll keep the IQ Credit Union water bowls filled for your furry pets! It’s not going to be too hot this year so bring your nice dog on down to enjoy the festival. Please do not give beer to you dog. That may be funny to some but it’s not cool to intoxicate your pets. We’ll have to ask you to leave.

Great food can be had at any one of our 6 food vendors. Check out the menus before hand at the food vendor page.

Remember, we’re all here to enjoy our community, celebrate Craft Beer – check out how many new breweries there are here in SW WA, you will be amazed at how fast they are coming on – and raise money for 3 great local charities!

Vancouver Cab is offering $5 off your cab ride to the event with an E-ticket and $5 off your ride home with a wrist band. Take them up on that offer and enjoy a worry free Brewfest.

Lastly, be kind to all and please drink responsibly.
