Community Safety and Well-Being
We know Skagit Farm to Pint FEST and Skagit Beer Week is something that we all look forward to every year, but we also know that things look a little bit different this year. For us, community safety and well-being are at the top of our priority list. So, we’ve decided to change things up. Skagit Farm to Pint heart and soul, the craft and the community, will remain unchanged.
Beer & Bite
Here’s what we’re doing this year. You, the craft beer supporter and participant, can purchase a ticket, which includes the FEST Guide. Bring your FEST guide to each of the Skagit Breweries where you will receive a stamp, a Sample Beer made with Skagit Valley Malt, and a paired bite that will include a local ingredient. For some of the breweries, your paired bite will be included in your FEST Swag Bag. You will have the month of April to visit each brewery for your beer and bite experience.
Over $1,000 in Prizes
Your FEST Guide will also include a scavenger hunt checklist to complete to enter to win over $1,000 in prizes. During April, you will use your FEST Guide to visit our local breweries and other locations to fill out your checklist and to show social media support for our breweries and all of our amazing sponsors. At the end of April, you will turn in your scavenger hunt checklist, and we will be drawing names for prize giveaways, including the grand prize kegerator, a Yeti cooler, swag, and gift cards!
Live Stream Concert
We will also have a live stream concert from the Lincoln Theatre on April 3rd to support our local musicians and kick-off the FEST’s start by awarding lots of great prizes!
Ebb, Slack & Flood is a local Anacortes band playing funk, soul, and reggae with a heavy blues accent. Their unique sound is a collaborative fusion, each member bringing different skills and styles to the table. The result is a blend of funk, reggae and R&B that is easy to listen to and hard not to dance to!
The Enthusiasts – A local Skagit Valley band naturally. The Enthusiasts will be playing original music and covers they wish they wrote!
Dean’sHonky Tonk Dream is a trio from Skagit County. Tom Forster, Peter Bridgman, and Dean Luce have been playing together for years in the bands SmokeWagon, The Dovetails, and Knut Bell, and the 360’s. The name first appeared on the marquee in the spring of 2013 when Dean started a month-long residency at the Green Frog Tavern in Bellingham playing two sets of music every Monday night. That morphed into what is now Knut Bell and the 360’s and it moved to every third Thursday at the Corner Pub in Bow where it’s been ever since. SmokeWagon and the Dovetails have also been actively playing shows here and there and the core trio has grown their repertoire and gotten tighter and tighter as a unit. Playing mostly covers of traditional tunes and early country, bluegrass, western swing, surf, and rock and roll, Dean’s Honky Tonk Dream throws in some of Dean’s original songs to even out the mix.
Craft Beer Community
In the end, we want to show our local breweries the love and support they deserve. We are hoping to rally our craft beer community around them. We wish things looked a little bit different this year, but we’re so grateful to be a part of a supporting and caring community during these trying times.
