Embrace your dark and bitter side.
Backwash is a celebration of craft brewing and a showcase of the very best the West has to offer. In its last year, 50 entries from as far afield as San Diego, San Francisco, Seatle and all points in between competed for the people’s and brewer’s choice awards. Since the event’s inception, many entrants and winners have gone on to become professional brewers in their own right. This year, due to popular demand, the ever will expand, with a goal of over 100 brews!
Created by local home brewers and beer enthusiasts, Backwash is a fundraiser for Project Great Outdoors, a non-profit organization that works to improve the lives of under-served and under-resourced young people in our community.
