Nearly 700 Craft Breweries from Almost Every State Sign Up To Take Part in Sierra Nevada's Beer Camp Across America Festival Tour | Coming to San Diego's Embarcadero North on Sunday, July 20

July 6, 2014

Nearly 700 craft brewers from around the country have already signed up for Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.’s Beer Camp Across America, an unprecedented multi-weekend traveling beer festival taking place this summer. Anticipating more than 1,300 total craft beers on tap, collectively representing almost every state in the union, Beer Camp Across America promises to be the largest craft beer celebration in history. Beer Camp Across America make's its stop in America's Finest [Craft Beer] City on Sunday, July 20 from 1-6pm at the Embarcadero North, and will include not only San Diego's best craft beers, but tastes from more than 400 beers from across California and the Unites States!

“This is ambitious—maybe a little crazy—but craft brewers delight in pushing limits,” said Ken Grossman, founder of Sierra Nevada. “We’re honored to celebrate craft’s success alongside so many of our peers who are traveling from every corner of the country. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience we look forward to sharing with beer lovers everywhere.”

Beer Camp Across America will make seven tour stops in cities with thriving craft beer cultures. Each stop will feature many of that city’s local and surrounding regional brewers. The festivals will appropriately begin and end at Sierra Nevada’s two brewing locations, kicking off in Chico where the brewery took root in 1980, and culminating in Mills River, NC, for the grand opening of its East Coast brewery. Beer fans have been snatching up tickets for each of the seven events, which are on sale at (only 5,000 tickets per venue will be sold). Each festival will feature up to two beers per participating brewery, food vendors, and live music by the MarchFourth Marching Band spectacle. Tickets cost $65 for general admission, which includes a tasting glass and unlimited tastings (in most locations, see the website for full details); or $30 for a designated driver ticket. Get your tickets online!

Like the festival tour, Sierra Nevada is also doing something unheard of in its brewhouse - creating a Beer Camp Across America collaborative 12-pack with 12 different beers made alongside 12 different breweries. (Not to mention it mixes 10 bottles and two cans!) The Beer Camp Across America variety pack will be released mid-July and features collaborations with Allagash, Ballast Point, Bell’s, Cigar City, Firestone Walker, New Glarus, Ninkasi, Oskar Blues, Russian River, 3 Floyds and Victory, plus a beer from the Asheville Brewers Alliance. These collaboration beers will be featured at every festival stop. Learn more about each of them at
