”Participants will enjoy specialty beer and cider offerings while rubbing elbows with Kent and regional brewers,” said Erica Carew, KDP program coordinator. “The community has always loved the downtown wine walks, but they’ve also asked for events centered around beer and cider, so we are super excited to kick the spring off with this event.
“Our goal is to provide patrons a fun way to try new products and learn more about what makes Washington ciders and ales so great.”
Visitors are encouraged to come early and get acquainted with downtown shops and restaurants. Merchants are welcoming friends and neighbors to join in celebrating and cultivating vitality in the charming historic district. Attendees can explore the diverse flavors of Kent on the downtown food trail, including Sushi, African, Thai, Cajun, Mexican, bistros and pubs. The event will also include a live music performance.
