Kent Downtown Partnership’s 2023 Downtown Kent Cider & Ale Trail will be Friday, April 28, 2023, from 6 – 9 pm.

It is all about beer and cider! Enjoy fresh ingredients and crisp, bold flavors that will tempt the taste buds of beer lovers and aficionados alike.

“We love beer, we love drinking it and we love introducing new products to the community,” said Erica Carew, KDP Program Coordinator.  “Beer lovers can look forward tastings of these social, bubbly and vivacious beverages in addition to live entertainment, fun conversations, lots of laughs and a lively vibe.”

“Participants will enjoy specialty beer and cider offerings while rubbing elbows with Kent and regional brewers. The community has asked for more beer events, so we are super excited to kick the spring off with this event” Carew added.
