Bellingham Bay Rotary presents the 4th annual “Brewers by the Bay” microbrew tasting! We are excited to build on the success of our three previous events and want you to be a part of the experience! Last year’s event featured 31 breweries, 65 different microbrews and over 800 attendees.
This is one of only a few epic Micro Brew Tasting Event that happens right here in Bellingham! You get a chance to sample beers from around 30 breweries and chat with the brewery folks about beer, brewing, whatever! For just $25 bucks you get entrance to the event, a commemorative tasting glass, 5 tasting tokens, free live music and free BBQ. Best of all, though, is that ALL proceeds from this event go to support the Whatcom Hospice House.
The Brewers By the Bay event will help raise funds to build a Hospice House for Northwest Washington. Since beginning in June of 08, over 3,000,000 has been raised towards our much needed goal of 6 million dollars. Whatcom Hospice consistently serves more than 100 patients every day in Whatcom County. Hospice professionals work with both patients and their loved ones to create individualized plans of care which enable patients to live the final days of their lives comfortably and pain free, with dignity, purpose and peace. Currently, however, hospice services can only be offered to a patient in his or her home, a hospital or long-term care center. For a variety of reasons, these options are not always the most desirable or appropriate for either the patient or caregiver. It is time another option became available: a Hospice House.
So take advantage of this great opportunity to not only help out a great cause, but to taste awesome craft beer in the process. That’s a seriously win-win situation! You can get tickets at various outlets around Bellingham including here at Boundary Bay Brewery, Applied Digital Imaging, Natural Way Chiropractic, Birch Bay Equipment Rentals and the Green Frog Acoustic Tavern. You can score tickets online too!
