Ellensburg Businesses Look Forward to BrewFest

ELLENSBURG, Wash. - The Ellensburg WinterHop BrewFest is coming up, and you may want to get your tickets now.  The event sold out last year.

Brewfest features 20 of the state's microbrewies, including local ones like Snipes and Iron Horse Brewing.  Ten downtown Ellensburg businesses will host those breweries.

Tickets cost $15, and the event happens Saturday, January 20th from noon to 5:00 pm.  Call the Ellensburg Chamber of Commerce at (509) 925-2002 to sign up.

Winterhop Brewfest is good exposure for those micro-breweries, and local businesses too. Fitterer's Furniture gets about 1,500 people going through their doors.

Store Manager Paul Jewell says it gives them a unique chance to show off their goods.  "Up to 1,500 people in one single day.  Most businesses don't get that in a month." he says.
