Seasonal Affective Disorder is now in full swing, so its about time for a celebration of everyones favorite depressant: alcohol! The Third Annual Winter Beer Festival at Hales Ales Brewery & Pub is hosted by the Washington Beer Commission, a bona fide government organization whose legislative declaration states that the general welfare of the people of this state will be served by continued development of the activities of the production of beer. Thus your level of inebriation directly correlates with your support of the local economy. Drink and be merry, indeed! Over 30 seasonal beers will be available, all from local breweries. Advanced tickets recommended.
