Inaugural San Diego Winter Brew Fest: A Ringo Schwag-Away

Is there nothing more satisfying than that first refreshing taste of an icy-cold, draft beer? You know, that sweet sip of the liquid gold that leaves a dream of a foamy path in its wake?

Do you take delight in witnessing its frothy spiderlace develop about the perimeter of your pint glass as it slowly dissipates, then relish as that barley pop sends the tongue to somersault as the flavors play leapfrog over one another? Do you then bask and smile from ear to ear, leaving a contented sigh behind?

If you find yourself waxing poetic about the pleasures you find in beer consumption, then I’ve the event just for you.

Ladies and gents, mark your calendars for the inaugural San Diego Winter Brew Fest set for next Friday, February 8th. This milestone occasion is set to take place at the scenic Port Pavilion on Broadway Pier (you know, that big glass box nestled on the pier’s edge?), and it’s shaping up to be one of the finest beer events of the year for our fair-weathered city.

Piggybacking off the success of the big and brewy Denver Beer Festival, this blooming frothfest has made its way to the best coast, I mean the west coast! Here in our very own Napa Valley of finely crafted brews, and they’re ready to paint the town sudsy with a rockstar list of participating brewers.
Live local music, food, vendors and a special guest appearance by a handful of San Diego food trucks will be by the waterfront to help satisfy your roaming hunger, and celebrate our California brewers and beyond.

With funds benefiting local non-profits Outdoor Outreach and the San Diego Mountain Bike Association (SDMBA), you can feel good about swilling the suds away for the noble cause.

Responsibly of course!

With all of the amazing local beers, I could go on and on, but simply put: Stone's Sublimely Self-Righteous Ale's roasty, toasty floral yum is the new black.

I love Pizza Port Poor Man's IPA when it's available.

Jennifer Edwards said...

I adore whatever beer the Pizza Port barkeep pours for me when I tell them I like wheat beer. Yes, I am but a novice in beer, but I am a willing student!

Alpine Beer Co's Nelson. Damn delicious, hoppy IPA. If you have not tried it, you're missing out. Their seasonal Bad Boy is great too, resinous IPA.

Imbrium said...

Oh, how can I choose? I never thought of myself as much of a beer fan, but I've had so many good beers at places like AleSmith, Ballast Point and Mission Brewery. I'm also partial to all the home brews that we get at Queso Diego meetings. :) I'll also have to try some of the options listed in the comments.

Green Flash! And anything uber hop hop hoppy!

Mother Earth Brew Co.'s Kismet is an exceptional beer! Hoppy and balanced, just all around good.

Hillary Condon said...

Hmm... favorite local beer... how can I pick just one? I love Karl's Red Trolley, I love Coronado's Mermaid Red, I love Green Flash's everything and Ballast Point's IPA... I hope to be able to attend this awesome event so I can discover a new fave! ♥

I am in love with many local brews, but I have to say that Stone Cali-Belgique is my favorite. I have gone through many a growler of that one...

Green Flash's Imperial IPA is a great beer. Very hoppy and incredibly smooth.
