South Sound Craft Crawl


Craft beer is big business, with more breweries opening in Washington than any other state. In addition, one in three travelers choose a destination for local food and drink. Yet in the South Sound, brewers felt overshadowed by Seattle breweries. Craft beer lovers near and far were unaware of the variety and quality of South Sound breweries and beer pubs.
