Are you a hop-head? Lager-lover?  Do you like your malted beverages thick and dark just like you like your...  eh, nevermind.

Whatever your preference, it will be beer heaven this weekend in the Puget Sound. The Seattle International Berfest is a high end 3-day beer festival specializing in rare, hard-to-find, exotic beers. Over 200 world-class beers from 16 countries will be on hand, hailing from all over the planet, many from right here in the Pacific NW.
