Saturday, August 10, 2013, 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
Innis Arden Clubhouse, 1430 NW 188th
For the third straight summer, 4-Corners.org will be hosting its wildly successful and tremendously fun 4-Corners BrewFest. For 2013, 4-Corners BrewFest will be held once again at the Innis Arden Clubhouse and grounds on Saturday, August 10, from 3:00–7:00 p.m.
This year, musical entertainment will be provided by the band Stillwater Hill, offering "traditional and contemporary bluegrass played from the heart."
In addition to being a great opportunity to rub (and bend) elbows with our friends and neighbors with some of the region's best craft beers, 4-Corners BrewFest serves as a charitable fundraiser with all proceeds going to support the Richmond Highlands, Innis Arden, Richmond Beach, and Hillwood neighborhood associations. In addition, a portion of the proceeds in 2013 will be going to The Works, a part of the Shoreline PTA Council.
The Shoreline PTA Council partners with local PTA units in Shoreline and Lake Forest Park to provide clothing assistance to Shoreline School District families facing economic hardship. PTAs also provide funding and volunteers to coordinate local clothing donations, product drives, and to volunteer at the WORKS on the school's assigned nights. The Shoreline PTA Council is also part of the Back to School Consortium working together with the City of Shoreline, the Center for Human Services, HopeLink, YMCA, local rotary groups and many more to put on the annual "Back to School event," during which the consortium provides backpacks, school supplies, underwear, socks, and hygiene products to Shoreline and LFP families needing help to start the school year. This year, they have served about 1250 children in our district.
2013's BrewFest will be roughly the same size as last—with about 20 brewers and approximately 600 attendees. As before, admission ($30) will include food, live music, and ten 5-oz. tastes of some of the finest craft beers around. And once again, the "Golden Growler", as voted on by the crowd, will be up for grabs. Last year, Gallagher's Where-U-Brew of Edmonds barely edged out 2011 winner Big E Ales of Lynnwood for the top prize. This year, a mix of returning breweries and newcomers will be looking to take home the coveted hardware.
Tickets for this fun event will be going on sale in May at Beach House Greetings and will also be available for purchase online via www.4-Corners.org a few weeks later. Be sure to get yours early because quantities are limited and the price will increase as we get closer to the event.
4-Corners.org, a 501(c)(3) non-profit registered with the Washington Secretary of State's Charities Program, was created in 2010 by representatives from each of the "4-Corner Neighborhoods" to benefit the four northwest Shoreline neighborhood associations of Richmond Highlands, Richmond Beach, Innis Arden, and Hillwood and provide financial support for their respective community programs. 4-Corners.org takes its name from the neighborhoods' common intersection at Richmond Beach Road and 8th Avenue North in Shoreline. The mission of 4-Corners.org is to enhance and strengthen community relationships between and among the 4-Corner neighborhoods and their residents. The foundation of a strong community starts with four corners. Information about the 4-Corners.org, future events, or how you can be a part of the fun can be found at www.4-Corners.org.
