Bikes, Boards And Brews Returns To Catamaran Resort On Sunday, April 24 Enter To Win Sold Out VIP Tickets To The PB Beer Fest

April 6, 2016

On Sunday, April 24, Bikes, Boards and Brews returns to the bayfront lawn outside of Catamaran Resort & Spa for it's 7th year, offering San Diegans a chance to sample some of our city's finest craft beers and tastes from area eateries, while perusing art and products from local vendors and rocking out to area bands, all in an unbelievably gorgeous setting. Celebrate the Pacific Beach culture and all the good things it has to offer as this event brings you back to the endless summer days at Tourmaline Beach with surf boards, beach cruisers and beach-inspired art. As usual, we are hooking our readers up with a chance to win a pair of SOLD-OUT VIP tickets!

Not to brag, but we have been to nearly every beer, wine and food festival that San Diego has to offer, and Bikes, Boards and Brews is definitely one of our favorite events of the year, and it has nothing to do with the fact that it's only blocks from where we live (well, maybe a little). The outdoor location on Mission Bay at the Catamaran Resort & Spa is intimate and beautiful, the music is lively and invigorating, the food offerings are delicious and the beer is plentiful. This year is certain to be another fun-filled experience.

Not only is this one of the best damn beer fests that America's Finest City has to offer, it is also one of the most affordable, especially considering it includes both food AND beer! General admission tickets to Bikes, Boards and Brews are $40 in advance and $45 on the day of the event. VIP tickets are completely sold out, but give the holder an extra hour to enjoy their additional beer tickets and food samples. For the price of admission, GA participants will enjoy 10 tasters from San Diego's best craft brewers, food pairings from local Pacific Beach restaurants, live entertainment and more. Do you have an awesome bike you want to show off? Bike Contest admission is $45, and includes VIP Admission and entry into Bike Contest, where participants will compete in 3 categories - Best Custom, Best Old School and People’s Choice.
