Beers, Bites, and Beauty - Skagit Farm to Pint FEST Roadshow

,
My husband and I celebrated our 20th-anniversary last year with a trip to Antarctica in February. Then Covid-19 happened. We had tickets to see the Paperboys at the Tractor Tavern on St Patrick's Day - Canceled. We had a weekend in Vancouver planned around The Mavericks concert - Border Closed, Concert Canceled. We had tickets to The 2020 Skagit Farm to Pint Fest last April - Canceled. This last one was especially painful, as we LOVE local beer and food! We were thrilled to learn that Skagit Farm to Pint Fest had been re-engineered for 2021 - a Covid-compliant, self-guided "Road Show" to last the entire month of April! Woohoo! Thirteen breweries. Three days. No problem!

2020 will be remembered by many as the year of the pivot. As challenges presented themselves, we adapted, pivoted, and overcame. We went into the year with high hopes of smashing our numbers from our 2019 Year-End and ended the year with new ideas and strategies to continue to support our customers, growers, and goals.

3 Ways to Support Skagit Valley Breweries

Now is the time to make the leap and try something new and local if you aren't already.   Introducing the Spring Valley Lager!  Members of Skagit Farm to Pint joined forces to create the 2020 Skagit Valley Spring Lager, a beer celebrating Skagit Valley’s home-grown barley and the Valley’s independent craft brewers. Thanks to Farmstrong Brewing, who donated its time and tank space, this limited-edition keg, and can release was going to be available throughout Skagit Valley for Skagit Beer Week and at Skagit Farm to Pint FEST.  Skagit Valley Spring Lager is now available at your local grocery store.  If you don't see it, please ask them to carry it!  You can also pick it up at Farmstrong Brewing, Anacortes Brewery, Chuckanut Brewery, Garden Path Fermentation, and Northsound Brewing.
