“Brews and Brats” Returns for a Memorable Father’s Day Celebration

Summer in Cle Elum means clear blue skies, bright sunshine and of course, the annual Father’s Day celebration that is known to one and all as Brews and Brats.


With clear skies and beautiful sunshine setting the scene, the much-anticipated event was once again held at Nelson Farm Pool, the social hub of Nelson Preserve–a place that reflects the natural ease of the neighborhood and is surrounded by panoramic vistas of the cascade Mountains. Brews and Brats was hosted by the Suncadia’s real estate team and attended by over a hundred guests of all ages, eager to kick-off what promised to be an easygoing but action-packed gathering.

There was plenty to keep everyone occupied, including tables laden with delicious snacks like beer-braised bratwurst and Wagyu hotdogs, craft creations from seven local breweries to wash them down with, and the soulful country-inspired melodies of native band Rusty Cage filling the air. Meanwhile, the little ones made a beeline for the pool, where they spent hours in the interactive splash pad and rode floats up and down the lazy river. And it wasn’t just the pool that excited them, it was the games that awaited on the lawns–the most popular of which was the family favorite cornhole. By the end of the evening, it was clear that the event was a resounding success, with smiles on every face, the adults chatting with neighbors and the Suncadia team and kids lazing around on the grass.

Well on its way to becoming a beloved Suncadia tradition, Brews and Brats not only signals the arrival of summer, it stands for all the things that make Suncadia the perfect place to call home—a tight-knit community that supports local businesses, an easygoing and cheerful gathering place, and most importantly,  a warm and inclusive vibe that welcomes one and all.

If you missed out on the festivities this year, make sure to save the date for the event in 2020!
