Information from the Beerstock organizers:

We are happy to announce that Beerstock 5060 will return to Washington this summer, on Saturday, July 20th, 2013.  We survived the NHC, we survived the apocalypse, we survived the meteor shower, therefore it’s time to celebrate by sharing our brewing concoctions at Beerstock 5060-4.   We invite all brew clubs to attend and set-up a booth from which to serve home brewed concoctions to other brew club members.  If your club  is interested, please contact Brian at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it for complete information.  Each homebrew club member is allowed to invite one guest, such as, a spouse, partner, interested friend or designated driver.  We do not charge a fee for attending, that would be illegal, but we request a donation of $15 each to help pay for expenses.  Any extra money generated will be donated to a local charity.
Happy Brewing,
Alison Sheafor-Joy & Mark Joy

Your club will need to choose one person to be it’s Beerstock Club Rep.  This person will receive emails with more details about the event from us and will need to share that information with his or her club members along with organizing their participation.

Some of you may be wondering, “What is Beerstock 5060?”  Back on July 26th, 2009, thanks to the hard work of choice WAHA members and other friends, Senate Bill 5060 passed making it legal to transport homebrew for consumption.  It is still highly illegal to sell homebrew, but our brew club meetings and homebrew sharing get-togethers are now legal.  In August of 2009, Beerstock 5060 was the first, legal get-together of Washington homebrew clubs to taste each other’s home brew and talk brewing across home brew club lines.  The first Beerstock 5060 was held on the 40th anniversary of Woodstock on our property outside of Arlington with the intention of sharing homebrew, love, joy, peace and creating new friendships between the various homebrew clubs.  This year Beerstock 5060-4 will take place in a large, private park South of Seattle where we will have lots of space for club booths, camping, a band, food, fun, games, prizes, etc.  The last Beerstock drew over 200 homebrewers from 16 different clubs.

Most clubs set up a booth from which to share their tasty brews with other home brewers, kind of like a home brewer’s brew fest or an all day and over-night NHC Club Night in the woods.  This is a private event, open only to homebrew club members.  Each member is allowed to invite one guest, such as, a spouse, partner, interested friend, designated driver, etc.  There is no fee for attending, this would be illegal, but there is a requested donation from each person to help pay for expenses.  In the past we barely broke even, but this year, we are going to involve and donate any extra money generated to the Lakewood Rotary Club.  In this way, Beerstock 5060 can help spread love and joy to the needy kids of Lakewood through the work of this wonderful organization.

We look forward to seeing Washington's excellent homebrews and club members at Beerstock 5060-4.
