Mission Valley Craft Beer & Food Festival Returns To Offer Best Beer Fest Value In Town On Saturday, April 15 | Save On Passes & Enter To Win VIP Tickets

February 12, 2017

Over the course of its six previous incarnations, the Mission Valley Craft Beer & Food Festival has come to be known as San Diego's tried-and-true, locals-friendly, best-value-in-town craft beer festival. MVCBF has always been reasonably priced and includes unlimited food and craft beer (plus spirits!) as well as great live music. On Saturday, April 15, the event will return to take over the gigantic practice field at Qualcomm Stadium for a day devoted to America's finest craft brews paired with some of our city's best restaurants and chefs. As always, SanDiegoVille readers save on any ticket type with promo code SDVILLE and we are also raffling off 2 VIP passes to attend.


One of San Diego's best beer and food festivals is back! Like many, you must be tired of "beer fests" not including food with the price of admission. It seems borderline negligent, but making you cough up more money to buy limited options of food once you're inside the event gates may be even worse. The Mission Valley Craft Beer & Food Festival always has and always will be an all-inclusive event, allowing you to sample unlimited amounts of creations from San Diego's best local eateries, breweries, distilleries and other purveyors. And surprisingly, even though it is being held at Qualcomm, parking is included in the price of admission!

VIP passes are $80 and already nearly sold out, but if you're one of the lucky few who picks up a VIP ticket, you get an extra hour and a half of imbibing (starting at noon), a MVCBF Brew Caddy lanyard for your beer cup, plus VIP only beer and spirit offerings. GA passes are now $50 and get ticket holders unlimited samples from 1:30-5pm. As always with San Diego's best events, promo code SDVILLE saves $5 per ticket at checkout when purchasing online.

Breweries scheduled to offer samples at this year's MVCBF include 3 Punks Ale, Abnormal Beer Co., Alesmith, Bay Bridge Brewing, Belching Beaver, Benchmark Brewing, Bitter Borthers, Bolt Brewery, Buring Beard Brewing, Division 23, Duck Foot, Eppig Brewing, Garage Brewing, Karl Strauss, Little Miss Brewing, North Park Beer Co., Pariah, Resident, Societe, The Lost Abbey, and many more. There will also be spirits from Henebery Whiskey, Kill Devil Spirit Co., Malahat Spirits Co., Liberty Call Distilling, and wine from The California Fruit Wine Co.

Some of San Diego's top restaurants and eateries will offer samples at MVCBF, including Slater's 50/50, Moto Deli, Soda & Swine, Alpine Beer Company, The Cork & Craft, The Grill at Torrey Pines, Waypoint Public, Taste & Thirst, and many more. e. And of course, there will be plenty of live music to keep the crowd grooving!

Buy your tickets to the MVCBF online before it is too late, as this event will most certainly sell out well in advance. A portion of the proceeds will benefit It's All About the Kids Foundation - a local charity who works alongside several other charities assisting San Diego's youth in overcoming life's hurdles.
