California Brewers Festival 2009
Saturday, September 19th, 2009
The California Brewers Festival hosts microbrewers from all over the US and abroad to share their handcrafted beers with more than 4,000 of our closest friends. Enjoy your favorite, award-winning hand crafted beers, savor local food from our favorite chefs, while listening to great live music.
The California Brewers Festival has for many years provided a fun and entertaining venue for brewers and beer lovers to share in the growing popularity of microbrew beers, while raising funds for children’s charities in the greater Sacramento area. The event is organized and promoted by the Rotary Club of Point West-Sacramento. Point West Rotary is once again proud to designate the Assistance League of Sacramento as the primary beneficiary of the 2009 California Brewers Festival. We also sponsor a professional beer judging/competition, featuring awards in 13 categories. It is conducted by the Gold Country Brewers Association whose judges are trained and certified through the Beer Judge Certification Program.
*** Gate opens at 12:30, first pour at 1:00pm, last pour at 4:45pm.
How it works:
Ticket price includes 10 tokens. Each token entitles you to a 4 ounce beer sample. (2) Live bands will be playing in this beautiful partially covered tree shaded park. A great variety of excellent traditional, Mexican, and southern foods will be available along with a cigar vendor.
Note: extra drink tokens, food, and cigars are available at an additional cost.
Ample parking is available at the normal Sacramento County Parks day rate.
Even better, the American River bike trail runs along the Festival perimeter, which provides easy access to the Festival via bike from Arden Park, River Park, Campus Commons, Cal Expo, CSUS, Old Sacramento, and Downtown Sacramento. Free secure bicycle parking will be provided.
Sorry, NO PETS ALLOWED.
The event is presented by the Rotary Club of Point West. The primary goal of this club is to raise funds for donation exclusively to local children’s charities. The club was chartered in 1985 and our membership exceeds 150, ranging in age from 25 to 80. The Rotary Club of Point West has raised and donated over $1,000,000 to local children’s charities.
