This weekend the West Coast will be the best coast for beer lovers. We got a couple of great beer events coming up in Tacoma, Washington and in San Luis Obispo, California that we’re ticketing and both are well worth the time and the hangover. But, don’t worry it’s a three day weekend, so why not whoop it up on Saturday so you have all day Sunday and Monday to recover?
The first one I want to talk about is the Brews & Bites festival happening in Mission Plaza in downtown San Luis Obispo. This event is in its third year and is presented by the good folks at the San Luis Brewers Guild. The Brewers Guild is made up of San Luis Obispo County-based breweries and this festival is an opportunity to showcase their craft beers. Not only will the beer be local but there will be food from local restaurants and music by local bands Funk in Public, Lakes and The Ragged Jubilee. There will also be four breweries out of northern Santa Barbara County this year so that’s eleven breweries total pouring four-ounce tastes. The price of admission gets you twenty-five taste tickets AND a commemorative Brews & Bites pint glass. What a deal. Tickets are going fast for this one so be sure head over here and pick up your tickets before their gone. Door admission will be based on a first-come-first-served basis. Read the rest of this entry »
