Bellingham Beer Week is fast approaching, celebrated here from September 11th through the 20th, it is chock full of fantastic events (we’ll highlight some of these in the upcoming days), but the main attraction, the culminating event, the capstone course, is Elizabeth Station’s SourFest. It will cap off beer week, hosted Saturday September 19th from 1:00 – 6:00 PM at Elizabeth Station. There will be sour beers coming out of every single tap, plus additional taps outside, plus bottle pours every hour, in short it is going to be insane. This is a ticketed event, available for purchase at Elizabeth Station, and Online.

What does the ticket get you, you may ask? It gets you entry to the event, a souvenir 13oz tasting tulip, and plenty of drink tokens that you can redeem for some ridiculous sours. Whether you are just dabbling into sours, or you are conquering the world of sours, there is guaranteed to be something new, rare, or special for you to sample.

Here is just a sample of some of the breweries that will be available at the festival —
