If anything was learned from the 2016 Bellingham Best Beertender competition, it’s that you all LOVE your beertenders. There were thousands of votes cast over the last month for dozens of Bellingham’s beertenders. We had new faces and old faces compete and campaign for the throne. All of them loved by the Tap Trail.

The finals came down to Lesley from Overflow Taps and Angie from Kulshan Brewing. In the end, the 2016 Bellingham Best Beertender is…

Angie Tullis

Kulshan Brewing


We’re excited to have Angie representing as Bellingham’s 2016 best beertender. She survived thousands of votes from across the region and came out on top as our clear winner. Not only is she loved by Bellingham’s craft beer community, she’s a certified cicerone server, so she really knows her beer. You should find out for yourself. Head on down to Kulshan and ask her some questions. A quote from Angie about the win:

“I’m so excited and honored to be nominated Bellingham’s Best Beertender! The competition was stiff and that’s one reason why the Bellingham Beer community is so great! I appreciate my customers and everyone that voted for me. It’s you all that make my job so fulfilling! I’m going to keep smiling and pouring incredible beer!”

Congratulations Angie! Bellingham came out in force for you! You’ve been crowned the Bellingham’s Best Beertender of 2016. Tap Trail, Angie is back at work next Wednesday.
