Visit These Tri-Cities Breweries On National Beer Day
Beer connoisseurs, rejoice! April 7 is National Beer Day, which marks the anniversary of the end of prohibition in the United States on April 7, 1933. (The day before, April 6, is even known as “New Beer’s Eve”.)
How does one celebrate National Beer Day?
Simple—just grab a beer, pair it with some delicious food, and spend time with friends, enjoying some of the best craft beer the Tri-Cities has to offer.
You probably already know that the Tri-Cities has award-winning wines, but you did you know that there are also a growing number of local independent craft breweries, brewpubs, taphouses, and cideries?
We especially love craft beer paired with enjoyment of the great outdoors, especially with the wide-open spaces and rivers of the Tri-Cities. There’s no better way to end a hike on Badger Mountain, a bike ride through Chamna Nature Preserve, or a run along the Columbia River than a delicious, cold and well-earned beer to refresh you.
And, there are even options for those who prefer sober experiences: local alcohol-free bottle shop Kindred Spirits offers a selection of non-alcoholic beer, so you can still enjoy the flavors of a chilled, delicious beer even if you choose not to drink.
Drink responsibly: Always have a plan for a sober driver, or use a car service like TC Black to get around with friends.
“Hop” over to one of these local spots to enjoy a pint of beer (or cider, if you prefer)!
