Our speakers Alyssa Miller, East Coast Regional Manager and Ben Prescott, resident Certified Cicerone of Ninkasi Brewing will be demonstrating proper technique, pairing and the "art of the pour".


Make plans to stay!  We have a host hotel block and transporation will stop at Hotel RL on the way to the venue if needed. 

$99 NACE Rate at Hotel RL - ONLY UNTIL FRIDAY, AUGUST 4th  Room block will be released at that time. I'm sure they'll still hook you up though. :) 

The block code is NATI0815; use this online at or call 1-800-RED-LION.  The direct link to the room block until AUG 4 is HERE.



We get it, Tenino is deep. 

Cars may be parked, pending space available, in "F" Lot (between 15th and 17th on Market) at Tacoma Convention Center. 

Transportation to the host hotel/venue will depart Tacoma 3:30PM and transportation will be provided back to the convention center following the chapter meeting for those not staying at the host hotel. Cars will be unaccesible between the hours of 1AM and 6AM on Wednesday, August 16th. Space is limited to the first 14 purchasers, so purchase the "transportion" ticket for $1 when you register today.     Yep - We took it down to $1 to take you all the way from Tacoma to Tenino and back to Tacoma.  Get on it. 

Board members: If you need transporation from Hotel RL back to Tacoma, you will need to purchase a $1 transportation ticket.  (We got you on the way down, but not the way back!)
