Here are the 41 Craft Breweries and their 175 that they'll pour at the festival:
7 Seas Brewing
1) Autumn Ale (6.5% ABV/27 IBU)
Brewed for early-mid autumn consumption, Autumn Ale takes its inspiration from the venerable traditions of German Oktoberfest and Vienna Marzen style of beers. Employing a blend of German Munich and Vienna malts as a base, this beer displays brilliantly clear copper-orange hues evocative of the vibrant, rich, and deep colors that surface seemingly overnight on trees this time of year in the PNW.
2) Ballz Deep Double IPA (8.4% ABV/ 84 IBU)
A mash tun packed with Pale Ale Malt, medium crystal malt, and cara-pils malt provide a firm, slightly sweet malt flavor while copious amounts of resiny Yakima Valley hops go berserk on bitterness, flavor and aroma. Truly a Big, Bold, and Balanced double IPA.
Badass Backyard Brewing
1) Daring Diva Raspberry Wheat (6% ABV)
Neutral malt profile which allows the raspberry flavor to shine through. Sweet and autumnal with a fresh floral finish. This is definitely a Badass Backyard Brewing fan favorite, and tastes even better on a nice warm summer day.
2) No Alibi Coconut Brown (5% ABV)
Is there anything more iconic of the lush tropics than the coconut? The delicious heart of the island treasure has a nutty, toffee flavor and aroma that send you straight to the beaches of Paradise. Kick back with a No Alibi Coconut Brown and savor the mahogany color and smooth, roasty malt taste. Before you know it, you'll feel like you're on a crescent beach, ringed with feathery palm trees swaying in a light ocean breeze and basking in the warm sun.
3) Mojo Coffee Stout (6% ABV)
Our coffee stout is a classic combination of a traditional stout and premium signature blend coffee from a local roaster, Thomas Hammer. Roasted barley and coffee dominate the aroma, with the sweetness from the stout balancing the acidity of the coffee.
4) Harju Fresh Hop IPA (5.6% ABV)
Locally grown hops from the Harju's backyard are the sole hop ingredient in this fall favorite. Medium crisp bitterness, smooth and full malt flavor, and aroma to knock your hop socks right off your feet! Enjoy!
Bale Breaker Brewing
1) Bale Finder IPA: Founders Collaboration (6.5% ABV/60 IBU)
An IPA featuring experimental hop HBC 522 brewed in collaboration with Founders Brewing. Part of the Harvest Collaboration Series.
2) Dormancy Breakfast Stout (6.8% ABV/50 IBU)
Who says Bale Breaker only does hoppy? This year's batch of Dormancy Breakfast Stout incorporates even more oats with the malt, plus an intense coffee presence, thanks to over 1 lb/barrel of Coast Rican beans roasted by Yakima's Lincoln Avenue Coffee Co. As winter settles in to the Pacific Northwest and the hop fields surrounding our brewery lay dormant, this beer was crafted to remind us that good things can still happen in the off-season for hops.
3) Bottomcutter Imperial IPA (8.2% ABV/100 IBU)
Double dry-hopped with homegrown Yakima hops, Bottomcutter IIPA may be light in color but is packed with citrus and pine hop character. This Imperial IPA is brewed to finish dry, perfect for the combination of Citra®, Simcoe®, and Ekuanot™ hops. As the bottomcutter is a tractor that leads the topcutter through the fields during harvest, this beer will lead to a new appreciation for our valley’s hops.
1) Fernweh, Baltic Porter (6.9% ABV)
Fernweh is a deep longing to be on an adventure, or simply to be somewhere other than where you currently are. As when Bilbo told Gandalf he so desperately wanted to see mountains again. Fernweh, the beer, starts of rich with a malt body of chocolate and caramel, then lingers into a clean roast that finished slightly dry with just a twinge of star anise. Gold Medal winner for best Baltic Porter at 2017 Washington Beer Awards!
2) Albion, Ancient Celtic Wild Sour (8.2% ABV)
Albion is the oldest name on record for the island of Great Britain. This beer aims to reflect that legend. Being brewed with heather and no hops gives this beer little-to-no perceived bitterness with a burst of floral, almost lavender-mint, bouquet. Late additions of heather, that are wild-harvested and imported from Scotland, introduce microbes that sour the beer. Peated malt provides a bit of smoke that rounds out this complex ale of antiquity.
3) Extreme and Experimental Rotation
This tap will rotate, so come by and see what we have on tap! How about a gruit ale that is the most bitter thing you've ever tasted? Challenge accepted? Perhaps an imperial dandelion sour? Something super hoppy? These and more to be found on rotation, so check in often!
4) Scots Bere Barley Rotation
Have you ever wondered about ancient ingredients? Bellwether had exclusive first-time use of Scots Bere Barley, the nigh-exclusive grain used for brewing beer in ancient Alba, modern day Scotland. It has been adapted to life, a true landrace grain, in the American Northwest and grown by Palouse Heritage Farms. Try our different single malt beers made with Scots Bere Barley, ranging from lagers to a bochet braggot! These are some of the rarest beers in the country... possibly the first time this grain has ever been used in the US. Stop by the table and see what's pouring!

A malt-forward body harmonizes with the sweetness of farm fresh honey and finishes with lingering fruit notes from fresh-picked raspberries we grew here on the family farm.
2) Blackberry Porter (6.8% ABV/ 65 IBU)
This porter does great justice to our brewery’s farming roots. Our farm-fresh blackberries make their appearance via the addition of our homemade blackberry syrup just at the end of the boil. A hint of blackberry on the nose is followed by a hearty porter body. As in most of our fruit beers, the blackberry undertones remain subtle yet just strong enough to make this an outstanding fall seasonal.
3) Golden Pumpkin Ale-ABV (6.3% ABV/ 13 IBU)
Few pumpkin ales can offer what ours does here at Big Barn Brewing. Our home-grown, freshly-harvested sugar pumpkins are roasted with seeds and all until caramelized then steeped with a hearty grain bill to make this brew truly golden. The carefully balanced 2-row barley, roasted pumpkins, cinnamon, molasses, ginger, clove, and real vanilla pair to make this a superb fall seasonal micro-brew.
4) Fresh Hop Midnight Harvest Black IPA (6% ABV/80 IBU)
Farm based brewing means we want "our farm" product in our beer! Our MIDNIGHT HARVEST celebrates that goal. As Spokane County's first "unofficial" commercial hop farm, we boast making a fresh hop ale with only hops harvested on our farm.... big C's celebrate the flavor of this IPA as we load it with Centennial, Cascade and Chinook hops.

A deep-golden straw appearance, aromas of pear, apple, and banana and mild earthy & coconut notes journey your tastebuds in an unknown frontier.
