San Diego is the craft beer capital of the United States, so what better way to celebrate Independence Day weekend than with unlimited beer tastings right under a giant American flag on the grounds of a former Navy barracks? The 3rd annual San Diego Brew Fest returns to Liberty Station's NTC Promenade on Saturday, July 6th promising another fun filled day. This year's event will feature dozens of local and international craft beers, live music, as well as some San Diego’s most coveted food trucks.
We attended last year's Brew Fest and had a grand ole time gallivanting about the lawn, sipping beers from newly birthed breweries and old alike, so much so that we embraced a blissful beer nap under the sun on the sprawling lawn of NTC Promenade...and it was glorious. Organized by Drink Eat Play, this event features tons of breweries (full list below). In year's past, lines have been short and offerings plentiful, allowing participants to sample many, many varieties of beer.
The San Diego Brew Fest’s proceeds will benefit Noah’s Bark Pet Rescue, an all volunteer nonprofit whose aim is to rescue dogs from shelters and find permanent homes for rescued pets. Proceeds from the event will go towards funding food, shelter and veterinary bills for rescued pets.
online, and if still available, at the entrance on the day of the event (additional costs may apply).
