Everyday Business | Here's a brew worth celebrating

Writing a blog sure makes a fella thirsty. Luckily, one of our favorite beer and wine guys — Alan Moen of Entiat — has a tasty solution in the works.

Moen, owner of Snowgrass Winery and a noted beer writer, has once again organized the annual Great Washington Porter Festival, which is on tap for Feb. 14-15 at the Saddle Rock Pub & Brewery in Wenatchee.

 

The event will showcase beers made in the porter style, which means dark with a creamy head and a roasty flavor. Moen said the two-day Porter Fest will feature about a dozen porters from around the Northwest, including “brown porters, robust porters, imperial porters, smoked porters, barrel-aged porters and others.” Not sure what that means but, heck, pour me another one.

 

The event will also feature a homebrew contest, the winner of which will have his or her porter brewed by Saddle Rock sometime in the future.

 

There’s no charge to get into the Festival, but beers will be sold as samples or by the glass. Food will be available. And, of course, you’ve gotta be 21 or older to hoist a brewski.

 

Get more info from Moen at 784-5101 or the brewery at 888-4790.
