Tour de Beer back for Year 2

WENATCHEE — When Tour de Beer was first organized a year ago, the TourdeBloomCrit17idea behind setting up the outdoor beer gardens on downtown Wenatchee streets was to make the experience of watching the annual Tour de Bloom Criterium even better for spectators.

Mission accomplished, as evidenced by the hundreds of people gathered at last year’s beer gardens, many clanking cow bells and cheering as cyclists raced by.

Now on to Year 2 and organizers have taken steps to improve Tour de Beer even more.

There will be an additional beer garden at the corner of Wenatchee Avenue and Orondo Avenue — bringing to four the number of outdoor gardens. Each of the gardens — others are located at Memorial Park, at McGlinn’s Public House on Orondo Avenue, and on Wenatchee Avenue between Palouse and First — will feature local craft beers, including ones from Icicle Brewing, Badger Mountain Brewing and Iron Horse Brewing.

Both events are put on by TedDriven, which is named for Wenatchee Marathon co-founder Ted Finegold, who died of cancer in 2010. The mother of another co-founder, Ian Crossland, also died of the disease several years ago. Read More
