The East Bay-based craft beer radio company, The Brewing Network, is back for its 2nd Annual Winter Brews Festival to jump-start the local craft beer appreciation season. With more than 30 world class breweries on tap, visitors will enjoy unlimited tastings from breweries such as the 21st Amendment, Gordon Biersch, Lagunitas, Magnolia, and Triple Rock. This Winter Brews Festival promises to expose beer lovers, new and experienced, to a variety of tasty beers, as well as raise awareness and funding for two local non-profits; the Coral Reef Alliance and BAD RAP (Bay Area Doglovers Responsible About Pit bulls).
The 2nd Annual Winter Brews Festival will be held at the Martin Luther King Jr. Civic Center Park in Berkeley on Saturday, January 29, 2011, from 12pm to 4pm. Tastings will feature a wide variety of local brews and unique innovations from some of the best brewers around, many of whom will be pouring their own beers giving visitors an opportunity to learn more about how the beer is made.
Rain or shine, they’ve got you covered. And with the Downtown Berkeley BART station just two blocks away, this afternoon event will be sure to satisfy locals wanting to enjoy some beers for a great cause. Tickets are $35 pre-sale, or $40 at the gate and include unlimited pours and a commemorative glass.
