January 11, 2016

Escape San Diego's unseasonably cold winter and head into the Hall of Champions in Balboa Park this February 19 & 20, as the San Diego Winter Brew Fest returns for its 4th year, featuring 2 nights of unlimited craft beer samples from some of the country's finest breweries. In addition to offering promo code SDVILLE to save on tickets (limited to the first 100 passes purchased), we are also raffling 2 VIP passes!

A celebration of craft beer from San Diego and beyond, Winter Brew Fest guests will get the chance to sample the best craft brews from over 100 breweries, including limited releases, while enjoying live music by The Fooks on Friday, February 19 and Euphoria Brass Band on Saturday, February 20. Headshine will open during the one hour VIP session on Saturday. 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, 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."

General Admission tickets (7-10pm) for the San Diego Winter Brew Fest are $40 in advance and $50 the day of the event. VIP tickets are available for Saturday only and cost $50 in advance and $60 the day of the event, and include early "power hour" admittance (6-7pm) with a special Venissimo cheese and beer pairing. Tickets can be purchased online, and SanDiegoVille readers save $5 per ticket by using promo code SDVILLE at checkout. Get your passes soon as our promo code is limited to 100 tickets, which will sell out in a flash! All attendees get a commemorative taster cup. There will also be a limited amount of non-drinking, designated tickets available at the door only.

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.
