Beer Garden 
and Taste of Shoreline

We are excited to welcome Sierra Nevada Brewery as a 
Sponsor for SolarFest.

In 1979, Ken Grossman began building a small brewery 
in the town of Chico, California. His goal: to brew exceptional 
ales and lagers. Today, the Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. is 
considered the premier craft brewery in the United States. 
And the beer? Critics proclaim it 
“Among the best brewed anywhere in the world.”
Today Sierra Nevada Brewery gets 80% of its power from 
Solar energy.  If you go to their web site at: 
and look at their page on the environment you can view 
real time output of electricity from their parking lot solar structure.

“Taste of Shoreline” featuring an array of cultures, 
textures and style. Sample food typically found in the deep 
South at Caspers, or Filipino food at Taste of Manila. 
For Midwestern flavor enjoy corn on the cob or baked 
potatoes from Fair Food. Have a hankering for a hot 
dog or sausage? For meet lovers and vegetarians alike 
you will enjoy Dante’s Inferno Dogs.

Refresh and cool your pallete with a good helping of 
Yvettes Ice Cream and/or Chartewells fruit filled skewers.

Building the Greenest Homes for the Seattle Market

In March of 2007, Martha Rose Constructionbecame a 
partner with the Department of Energy and the Building 
America program. Their goal is to help builders achieve 
a zero-net energy use home that is competitively priced 
in the market place.
Martha Rose Construction’s vision is a future where ALL 
new homes are healthy to live in and produce as much or 
more energy than they consume. Through proper design, 
engineering and construction this goal can be achieved.
The standards of the future are the practices that MRC 
employs today. Our homes are certified by an independent 
3rd party verifier.

In one year the average car puts over 5 tons of Carbon

footprint. How? With a tree! Just test-drive or purchase 
a Subaru at Carter and we'll plant a tree in your name in 
the Mountains to Sound Greenway, the scenic byway

How cool is that!
