More than 40 independent craft brewers are on tap for Pouring at the Coast, the annual beer festival taking place Friday through Sunday, March 15 to 17, and presented by the Seaside Chamber of Commerce and Seaside Brewing Co.

The event features a wide selection of beers — and some ciders — created across the Pacific Northwest.

The centerpiece of the festival, now in its 10th year, is the Craft Brewfest and People’s Choice awards from noon to 6 p.m. Saturday at the Seaside Civic & Convention Center.

This year, the event lineup includes a Brewers B-Ball tournament, from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. Friday, at Clatsop Community College’s Patriot Hall. The tournament will pit teams from the different breweries against one another, and the public is welcome to spectate. Attendees can enjoy a beer garden with live music from 8 to 10 p.m. Saturday at the Convention Center. There also will be a Brewers Brunch held 11 a.m. Sunday at Seaside Brewery Co.; reservations are required.

The $20 admission fee purchases each participant a tasting glass and five tasting tickets. Additional tasting tickets are available for $1 a piece.
