Win 2 VIP Tickets To The 5th Annual San Diego Brew Fest | Taking Over Liberty Station On Saturday, June 20

June 1, 2015

Calling all craft beer lovers! The 5th Annual San Diego Brew Festival returns to Liberty Station's NTC Plaza on Saturday, June 20, from 2-5pm (1-5pm for VIP). Following last year's sold out event, this year's Brew Fest will offer attendees an opportunity to sample offerings from countless local and international breweries, with numerous food truck options, all while rocking out to live music. San Diego is the craft beer capital of the United States, so what better way to celebrate summer than with unlimited beer tastings? In addition to giving you all the juicy details on the event, we're also offering a chance to win 2 VIP passes!

We attended the last three installments of the San Diego Brew Fest and have consistently had a grand ole time gallivanting about the lawn, sipping beers from newly birthed breweries and veterans alike, so much so that we generally can be seen mid-afternoon embracing a blissful beer nap under the sun on the sprawling lawn of NTC Promenade. Organized by Drink Eat Play, this event features tons of breweries. In year's past, lines have been short and offerings plentiful, allowing participants to sample many, many varieties of beer.

Many of San Diego's world class breweries are participating in this year's Brew Fest as well as many others from near and far, including Firestone Walker, Oceanside Ale Works, Lagunitas, Helm's, Thorn St., Ninkasi, Ironfire, Acoustic Ales, Samuel Adams, Culture, Drake's, Thirty-Two North, URBN St., Bell's, Iron Fist, Mission, Amplified Ale Works, Belching Beaver, Mike Hess, Bolt, Magic Hat, Sierra Nevada, New English, Lightning, Duck Foot and many, many more. Admission includes unlimited beer samples (while supplies last), with food sold separately. A variety of local food trucks will be on hand to complement the beer, including Two For the Road, Devilicious, NY on Rye, Criscito Pizza, Haad Sai Thai Truck, Currywurst, Hana Hou To Go, Famoso Food Truck, DoggosGus, Mastiff Sausage, and Cheesy Amigos.

General admission tickets are $40 (2-5pm), VIP tickets are available for $50 (1-5pm). Both types of admission include unlimited beer tastings, with VIP admission offering an additional hour to imbibe. Tickets can be purchased online, and if still available, at the entrance on the day of the event (additional costs may apply). Get them fast because this event will certainly sell out. The San Diego Brew Fest’s proceeds 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.

Liberty Station can be tricky to navigate, so put 2640 Cushing Road into your GPS and look for the giant American flag. You can NOT bring pets and you must have ID with you. Everyone must be 21 or over, including designated drivers, which also means no infants/babies/kids. VIP admission begins at 1pm, but you may arrive as early as 12:30 to check in, and general admission begins at 2pm (checking in starts at 1:45). The event is over at 5pm. Parking is free and located just West of the venue at Roosevelt and Cushing.
