Event Alert: PROOF Washington, June 15

Guest Post by Juli Crompe.

While the name of this blog suggests wine content, William and I recently had a chat about the explosion of distilleries in Washington state (and the Northwest) and decided it was worth a bit of attention. With the first annual PROOF Washington scheduled for June 15th, this is the perfect time to introduce yourself to some of the new, hot local distilleries. And if you purchase before June 7th, early bird pricing is in effect, saving you $5 per ticket!

PROOF Washington will be held at The Foundry by Herban Feast (formerly known as Urban Enoteca), a hip, urban event space that will feature 40 distilleries and 12 local restaurants & food vendors sampling some delicious bites. Music will be spinning from KEXP's Greg Vandy & custom crafted cocktails will be shaken and stirred from expert local bartenders.

At PROOF, you'll also be able to meet the men & women responsible for these libations, and learn about grains, barrel aging, fermentation, the creation processes and blending.

One thing I really like about this event which is different than Taste Washington and other wine events is that there will be an on-site retail store where you can purchase anything you liked throughout the event and take it home! This seems to be a new trend with hard liquor events. Proceeds from the on-site sales benefit the Washington Distillers Guild.
