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 2008 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.
Advance Tickets are $25**, $30 on day of the event. Tickets for designated drivers and children between the age of 12 and 21 will be available for $5.00. Children under 12 are free.
** Note: Onlines tickets are charged a 2.50 convenience fee
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, Park and Rec charges standard rates per day use for vehicle entrance. Even better, the American River bike trail runs along side the festival perimeters, 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.
