Saving Today's Youth Through Tomorrow's Hangovers. Drink Responsibly, Paddle Madly

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 2013, 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.

The “Best of Backwash” is your chance not only to support adventure education for underserved youth in our area, but also to have some exceptional rare beers and learn about them from the brewers themselves.

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.
