It’s that time of year again as tickets to our favorite beer festival on the West Coast go on sale.

Each year Firestone Walker Brewing does not disappoint when it hosts this annual gathering of over 50 world class breweries, all invited Matt Brynildson, Firestone Walker’s Brewmaster. Each brewery brings their A game to California’s Central Coast.

Alongside these 50+ breweries will be over 20 local restaurants, live music, brewer panels and a full afternoon of fun!
