Tickets

Price

$25

For just $25 you receive admission into the event. Once inside, your taste buds will be overwhelmed by a wide selection of tasty Northwest craft beers, while your ears will be treated to the sounds of talented musicians and DJ's. To top it all off you’ll get 7 tasting tokens and a commemorative tasting cup to cherish until next year’s Penumbra Beer Bash. Remember, this event is 21+.

VIP

$50

NEW THIS YEAR

Penumbra Beer Bash is providing VIP ticket holders with early entry at 4pm for a whole hour of exclusive VIP time in the venue with breweries and a private performance by a local musical Genius Award recipient Lori Goldston. She is a force of fiece, searing cello evocation. Ever heard of Nirvana’s Unplugged, yeah, she was there. Get to the event early with your VIP tickets to spend time with Lori Goldston and the breweries.

VIP tickets just keep getting better. This year we thought, why don’t we pair our delicious, hand-crafted beers with the bitchin', hand-crafted snowboards at Lib Tech. Each VIP ticket holder is entered to win one of two snowboards by Lib Technologies based here in Washington. Can’t get more local than this! Handcrafted in the USA near Canada.

Also, just like last year, this ticket includes infused tastes from the Randall Cup Competition.

Drink Tokens

Each ticket comes with entry into the event but also provides you with 7 drink tokens to start off the evening. More tokens can be purchased for those beer diehards, because you’re going to want to taste all the beers. A single token is $1.50 or 3 for $5.00 or 7 for $10. That’s a killer deal!

Commemorative Tasting Cups

Everyone needs a cup to commemorate this fine event. We give you a 5 oz. taster to sample the finest brews the Northwest has to offer.

Purchasing Tickets

I know you’re dying to grab your tickets. Throughout this site you can find a link to BUY TICKETS. Look, even that was linked. This event is likely to sell out in advance so buy early and check the website the day of the show if you are planning to just show up.

Food Trucks

Hungry? We’ve got you covered! Several Seattle Food Trucks will be on hand to subside the munchies and soak up all that beer. Think Hallava Falafel, Off The Rez, Seattle Biscuit Company, Dante’s Inferno Dogs and Caravan Crepes.

Driving Directions

Have we recommended using public transportation yet? Please be responsible and have a designated driver! From I5 North or South, merge onto I90 East. Take exit 3 for Rainier Avenue South. Make Right onto Rainier Avenue South. Make right onto Martin Luther King JR. Way South. Make immediate right onto S. Winthrop Street. King’s Hall will be past the Mount Baker Light Rail Station on your right.

Parking

The King's Hall parking lot will be available for Penumbra's beer loving crowd, but space is limited and on a first come, first serve basis. Street parking in the neighborhood is plentiful. Plan to car pool and have a designated driver or use the light rail or metro. This location was chosen to be accessible by public transportation.

Flywheel

Request, track and pay for rides all with your phone. Professional drivers. Flat rates 24/7. On-demand.

By Bus

Plan a trip! Enter in your final destination as ‘RAINIER AVE S. and S. MOUNT BAKER BLVD’. King’s Hall is on the corner of Martin Luther King JR. Way S. and S. Winthrop St. directly behind the Mount Baker Light Rail Station. Bus Routes servicing this area are the 7, 8, 9, 14, 34, 38, 42, and 48.

By Light Rail

Perhaps the easiest way to get to King’s Hall. Just hop on the Light Rail for once and get off at the Mount Baker Station. Walk 50 yards towards Beacon Hill and you won’t miss us! PENUMBRA ends at 10:00PM. The last Light Rail heading northbound leaves Mount Baker Station at 12:32AM. The last Light Rail heading southbound leaves Mount Baker Station at 1:12AM.

About

Wtf is Penumbra?

(Definition-a partial shadow, as in an eclipse, between regions of complete shadow and complete illumination) – AKA the darkness that defines the silver lining.

We get sleepy in the winter. It is dark and cold and wet. We see less shows, see less of our friends, and conserve energy to use in those far-distant five days of summer. To hell with all that! Let's drink great local beer, dance to awesome music and celebrate the LAST WEEKEND of Winter in Seattle at a crazy underground events space strategically located right behind Mt. Baker Light rail.

Special Thanks

Special thanks to Amanda Krutenat and Mark Leavens for curating music and brews and for wrangling some of the most creative aspects of this event. We also want to thank all the beer vendors, bands and King’s Hall first and foremost. Without them, none of this could be possible. All the creatives that helped with design and development- you fucking rule. Yeah, I’m talking about Rob Stanton and Brian Behrens. A big thanks to Seth True for making The Randall Cup trophy. Also, the hard-working, sweat-beading, backwards bending volunteers that gave us their time and tears. Can't thank you all enough. And last, but certainly not least, we'd like to thank Evangeline Spracklin for all her help with the interior decor.
