Fest centerpieces beers made from local grains

Beverages crafted from local grains are on tap at the Pour Company Artisan Grains Beer Fest, from 4-9 p.m Friday, July 8, at the Latah County Fairgrounds in Moscow.

The event features unique beers from Hunga Dunga, Micropolis Brewing, Moscow Brewing and Paradise Creek Brewing, as well as ciders and seltzers from Pour Company and Moscow Alehouse, according to a Pour Company news release.

Food vendor Patty’s Mexican Kitchen will be on site, with the Moscow Food Co-Op offering baked goods made with local grains. A home-brewing demonstration by representatives from Tri-State Outfitters will highlight local malts.

Bluegrass band The Pond will perform during the event, which is open to all ages.

Tickets, from $7.50 for children 12 and older (kids younger than 12 need a ticket but can attend for free) to $20 for adults, can be purchased at pourcompanymoscow.com. Extra drink tickets can be purchased as well.

Beers featuring local artisan grains will be evaluated by both a panel of judges and festival attendees to determine the winner of the Artisan Grains Mash Paddle, a trophy custom-made for the event by Palouse Craftworks.
