How's about some history, a lot of beer, “the world’s best baked beans” and more beer? Sounds good, right? Well it is.
In one of its most popular events of the year, the historic 1908 Olympic Club hosts their annual brewfest every Spring, in which our McMenamins’ Washington brewers along with guest brewers and importers gather together to pour their finest.
In addition to soaking up the atmosphere of one of McMenamins' most legendary establishments – with its history of railway bootlegging, captured train robbers, secret call buttons, subterranean tunnels, rumored hauntings and more – beer enthusiasts can also tour the Olympic Club brewery, relax in the outdoor seating area, play a round or two of pool and enjoy specials from the open-pit barbecue, including bratwurst, tri-tip steak and burgers with those famous baked beans.
Though our rooms are sold out, we're teaming up with the nearby Holiday Inn Express & Suites for hotel packages with shuttle service to our door! The special Brewfest offer includes: two punchcards to use for Brewfest tasters, shuttle service to and from the Olympic Club, an overnight stay for two, and breakfast at Holiday Inn. The property includes a pool, hot tub and free WiFi, and this package starts at $139 (group code OCB).
