Brewfest in Shoreline? Yes, please.
We love living in Shoreline – spacious, quiet and plenty of dog parks – but it’s not what I would consider a lively place when it comes to bars, restaurants and events of any sort. That’s why I was so excited to hear about the 4-Corners Brewfest happening this Saturday at 4-Corners in Shoreline. The event runs from 3 – 7 p.m. at the Innis Arden Clubhouse where partakers will enjoy 20 Washington breweries pouring more than 40 beers. This event is a fundraiser for the 4-Corners.org.
What is 4-Corners? That’s a good question because I live in Shoreline and had never hear about it before. Apparently, there’s a place in Shoreline where four neighborhoods – Hillwood, Innis Arden, Richmond Beach and Richmond Highlands- come together at one intersection. People in the neighborhoods got together to a simple mission: enhance and strengthen community relationships between and among the 4-Corners neighborhoods. The 4-Corners Brewfest is their first event and will not only earn money for the four neighborhood foundations, it will also strengthen the community by creating a spirit of unity between the four neighborhoods.
So what can we expect from the 4-Corners Brewfest? According to the Washington Beer Blog:
Steve Kerr, speaking on behalf of 4-Corners.org, told us [the Washington Beer Blog] that they modeled the event after beer tasting events organized by the Phinney Neighborhood Association in Seattle: the PNA Summer Beer Taste and the PNA Winter Beer Taste. Like those events, the 4-Corners Brewfest benefits the neighborhoods that the organization serves, but it also provides the larger community with a fun event.
Sounds good to me. Advance tickets are $30 and include ten 5 oz. tasting tickets, food, live music and non-alcoholic beverages. The price goes up to $40 at the door (if they’re still available!), so make sure to buy yours early. They can only sell 540 tickets total. Should be a nice, intimate group (ha!).
See you there!
