Keys on Main will provide DJ music as well as an interactive dueling piano show. Once again, we’ll have contests and activities such as life-size beer pong, a helicopter golf ball drop, beer stein holding, and several other attractions.The Tumwater Artesian Brewfest celebrates the long history of beer making in Tumwater and the craft behind today’s outstanding beer and wine professionals. While the event offers Olympia Beer on tap, this festival focuses on local brewers and vintners. According to Brewfest organizer Chuck Denney, “For us, it’s an opportunity to bring together a variety of partners and host a fantastic community event. For breweries, cideries, and wineries, it’s an opportunity to share their talents and products with a regional audience from throughout the South Sound.”Learning about hops and the Craft Brewing and Distilling Center.
