Which brewery will win the coveted
Golden Growler?
Brew Fest 2014 is coming soon!!

Mark your calendars for Saturday, August 9, from 3-7 pm and join your neighbors at the Innis Arden Clubhouse for some awesome beer, great food, and community you can find only in Shoreline.

Tickets are $30 and will be available at Beach House Greetings, 626 Richmond Beach Road, starting on June 12 (hello, Father's Day gift!) and online via brown paper tickets in late June. There will be a limited number of designated driver tickets ($15 via brown paper tickets only).

Your ticket gets you:
  • a 5oz tasting glass
  • 10 tasting tokens
  • food (brats and pulled pork sliders)
  • snacks (veggies, peanuts, popcorn, pretzels)
  • non-alcoholic drinks (lemonade, iced tea, root beer)
  • music (this year's band is a rock duo “The Pink Torpedoes”)
There will be a total of 20-22 local craft brewers on hand. The brewers include Georgetown Brewing, Fremont Brewing, Gallaghers Where U Brew, American Brewing, Naked City Brewing, Big E Ales, Stoup Brewing, Brickyard Brewing and many more. Vote for your favorite to take home the coveted Golden Growler trophy!

All net proceeds are split five ways: the four neighborhood associations (Hillwood, Innis Arden, Richmond Beach and Richmond Highlands) and a rotating charity. This year's designated charity is Shoreline Music 4 Life, which provides refurbished instruments to Shoreline elementary and middle school students.

For timely updates, go to the webpage or the Facebook page (4-Corners BrewFest).

Always looking for volunteers -- visit the Volunteer Spot on the 4-Corners Brew Fest page and choose your slot ...  A two-hour volunteer shift earns you a free ticket!

Does your business want to get in on the buzz (so to speak)? Business sponsorships of any type are welcome and they are gratefully accepting financial donations, door prizes (swag, gift cards etc), or simply a prime spot to hang posters. Contact us if you'd like to be a part of the party! Logos / recognition will be printed in the program and on the 4-corners website.

Shoreline's first regional neighborhood, "4 Corners", could not have picked a better charity to support. Music4Life has the full endorsement of the Shoreline City Council. David Endicott, President and CEO for the charity, thanked Mayor McGlashan, Deputy Mayor Eggen and the rest of the council last November, and especially Councilmember Shari Winstead, "a donor who organized this expression of the Council’s opinion."

Mr. Endicott reiterated his appreciation for the council's letter of unanimous endorsement during public comment at a city council meeting in April of this year. Mayor Winstead's enthusiasm was palpable, as she welcomed the speaker by name, generously gave him a full additional minute when his allotted 5 minutes (for recognized organizations only) ran out, and thanked him for his "presentation" and for the organization's fine work.

Shoreline's anachronistic celebration of alcohol (in moderation) as a community value, illustrated here in this singular pairing of beer and kids, is no more surprising than the City Council's ironic introduction and subsequent passage of Winstead's alcohol in the parks ordinance in 2012, which Council took up immediately after discussing a ban on tobacco in parks (which also passed).

Vision 2029.

Uh huh. Meanwhile we've got private citizen's picking up after beer-guzzling gangs on our beach. Can anybody say, "Joe Camel"?
