More than 30 breweries serving at least 70 choice brews will be at UnTapped this year.  The Festival in 2012 hosted a range of micro breweries including Ice Harbor, Atomic, Rattlesnake, Whistran, Laht Nappur, and Horse Heaven Hills, Paradise Creek, Deschutes, Iron Horse, Snipes, Full Sail, Rouge, Fish, Paradise, and Yakima Craft, Lost Coast, Sierra Nevada, Diamond Knot, Ninkasi, Mad River, and Stone. Big and small we love them all…and this year we will be have 20% larger tasters giving you an opportunity to realize the full flavor of participating breweries.

In association with the Mid-Columbia Zymurgy Association we will offer Fest goers a "homebrew" beer brewed for UnTapped and conduct the fifth annual "People's Choice" Award for the favorite breweries attending the festival.  Past winners have included Ice Harbor Brewery, Iron Horse Brewery, Old School House Brewery, Snipes Mountain Brewery, Full Sail Brewery, and Whistran Brewery.

Clover Island Inn will again be our Blues Weekend Headquarters and the Inn is offering a special rate that will chase your financial blues away.    This year we offer convenient on-site camping with special rates at the Benton County Fairgrounds.

More music, more beer yet no change in the cost of tickets!! Ticket prices for Saturday's UnTapped  remain unchanged for the sixth consecutive year.

The mighty Columbia, rolling hills, the view from Badger, the local events and shops - from farmers' markets at the Parkade with breakfast at Cheese Louise, to pizza at Ethos Bakery or the bustle of Barraccuda Coffee or Roasters.

There's a rich tapestry of history & modern culture here. Checking out the Tri-Cities Guide or simply strolling by the river may inspire you to immerse yourself in the experience and play your own part in this story.

What is TriCitia? It is the events which act as doors to this story. It is the collection of ways to step into the tapestry, to find out about new avenues to indulge your old interests, or to uncover fascination with hobbies and activities you may have never even dreamed about.

TriCitia is for TriCitians: native, visiting, or transplanted. Out of respect for your experience of the story, we would like to eventually feature local advertisers and will gladly accept donations to help cover hosting costs.
