Your choice: Brewfest or Beerfest on Saturday

Pullman’s Gladish, Moscow’s Pour Company both holding beer festivals March 2
Both Pullman and Moscow are hosting a Brewfest and Starkbierfest respectively on the same day.

If you enjoy drinking beer, the Palouse is a good place to be on March 2. A Brewfest and Starkbierfest will occur in Pullman and Moscow featuring different beers, live music and food for the public.

The Gladish Community and Cultural Center in Pullman will be holding its third annual Brewfest in its gym. Doors open at 2 p.m. and tickets are $25 each, which include one taster glass to keep and five drink tickets. Any additional drink tickets cost $2 each.

Gladish administrative assistant Samantha Opdahl said she thinks events like these bring the whole community together.

“You see older people, younger people, people from all walks of life, of all different views,”  Opdahl said. “And they’re all coming together to celebrate the local brewery culture.”

The festival will feature beers from four different breweries from around the Palouse and Spokane, and wine from Merry Cellars Winery in Pullman. The event is for 21-year-olds and older; the Gladish will check IDs at the door.

Local German band Auf Gehts will be playing live music, and Love Shack Kitchen will provide food.

The Pour Company in Moscow is throwing its first Starkbierfest featuring many unique German beers. The festival will be outdoors from 1–5 p.m. on Sixth Street in Moscow.

Pour Company owner Stefan Yauchzee said the festival was a German celebration.

“The big one they have every March is Starkbierfest which is a celebration of strong German beers, which is anything 7% and above,” Yauchzee said.

The festival is open to all ages, but those to wish to drink must purchase a wristband for $25, which will give them three drink tickets. Any additional drink tickets will be available for purchase for $3.

Along with drinks, No Soap Radio will be playing during the event. Food trucks and street vendors will also be selling food.

“If you just want to come hang out and listen to the music and stuff like that, it’s free to just come enjoy,” Yauchzee said.
