South Sound IPA Festival headed to Tacoma's Union Station

Bennett Thurmon had his sights on Tacoma's Union Station for years. The co-producer of the Tacoma Craft Beer Festival wanted to host a more intimate drinking session at the downtown Tacoma historic building. He imagined a classy affair with candlelight and Tivoli lights.

The Washington Beer Commission beat him to it. The official state beer commission will ride the enthusiasm of last week's IPA Fest at the ParkWay into Union Station with 24 Washington breweries pouring 50-plus IPAs at the inaugural South Sound IPA Festival Saturday, Oct. 18. Intimate yes, in terms of the number of breweries and the venue, but the event will be broken into two sessions of 750 attendees each: the first session will run noon to 4 p.m. and the second session from 5:30-9:30 p.m.

Stay tuned for more details.
