The San Diego Winter Brew Fest returns for its 5th year on Saturday, February 18, taking over Balboa Park's Hall Of Champions for an evening of unlimited craft beer from some of the country's finest breweries, as well as live music from local rock band Elektric Voodoo. In addition to offering promo code SDVILLE to save on tickets (limited to the first 50 passes purchased), we are also raffling 2 VIP passes. Read on for more information and be sure to enter!


A celebration of craft beer from San Diego and beyond, Winter Brew Fest guests will get the chance to sample the top craft brews from over 100 breweries, including limited releases, while enjoying live music by Elektric Voodoo. A special menu of sandwiches, tacos and more will be offered by the on-site cafe. With roots in Denver, event organizers RightOn Productions have been putting on brew festivals since 2004.

"With more than 100 breweries in San Diego, the Winter Brew Fest creates a fun environment to try a variety of brews all in an interesting setting," said Carolyn Hassell, RightOn Managing Partner. "In addition, the fest's donations to the benefiting non-profits, Outdoor Outreach and SDMBA (San Diego Mountain Biking Association), make a significant impact in their programs."

VIP tickets are $50 in advance and $60 the day of the event, and include early "power hour" admittance (6-7pm) with a special cheese and beer pairing.

The San Diego Winter Brew Fest benefits Outdoor Outreach, a company whose mission is empowering at-risk and underprivileged youths to make positive, lasting changes in their lives through comprehensive outdoor programming. The festival also benefits the San Diego Mountain Bike Association (SDMBA) - a nonprofit, volunteer organization representing the interests of off-road cyclists and other non-motorized trail users in San Diego County. SDMBA's goal is to unite mountain bike riders, retailers and manufacturers to speak with a coordinated and responsible voice in dealing with other trail users, land managers and policy makers.
