We'll be pouring cider at the Alefest tent, just steps away from our taproom in Manson. 

From the Lake Chelan Winterfest website:


January 20th 5-10pm and January 21st 3-10pm (VIP opens at 2pm)

A couple days of tasting everyone will enjoy! Sample from a selection of over 50 unique craft beers and hard ciders from purveyors from the Pacific Northwest and many from Lake Chelan.  From ports to pale ales; traditional cider to unique style ciders – you’ll be surrounded by the incredible craft that is booming in our region.  Don’t worry if you want to try more than 6 – additional tasting tokens will be available for $2/each!

A General Alefest ticket includes 6 tokens (each 5oz. taste = 1 token), a Winterfest beer tasting mug and a Winterfest Button.  Your tastings can be used all in one day or over the course of the 2 days.  Additional tasting tokens available for $2/each.

A VIP Alefest ticket includes everything in the General Alefest ticket plus a special 1-hour early entrance on Saturday.  You will be able to spend quality time tasting and discussing your favorite beers and ciders. No tasting tokens are required during this extra hour.
