California Craft Beer Summit & Brewers Showcase
By Leia Ostermann
Calling All Craft Beer Enthusiasts!
California is the birthplace of the craft beer movement and home to more than 500 craft breweries. It is my personal mission to visit all of them. Lucky for me, California’s top breweries are coming to visit me.
Sacramento will welcome craft beer enthusiasts and beer masters from across the state at the California Craft Beer Summit and Brewers Showcase on September 11 and 12, during Farm-to-Fork week. This first-of-a-kind event will provide a chance for brewery owners, beer lovers and home brewers to experience a hands-on education on the craft brewing process, from farm to glass.
Behind every great beer is a great story. This celebration will tell the story of California’s craft beer movement and celebrate the brewers whose creativity and passion have formed the world’s most coveted beers. This event will be the first time craft beer enthusiasts can come together in the same room with master brewers to see, touch, taste and learn the process of creating these fine, craft brews.
The event will culminate in a craft beer showcase next to the State Capitol where more than 150 California breweries are expected to pour!
Tickets go on Sale March 2015. I don’t imagine they will last long.
Some of the highlights from the summit include:
- Tap Talks: Beer masters will host interactive sessions to discuss beer styles, brewery origins and brewing processes
- Master Demos: Food and beer pairings from California’s top brewers and chefs
- Experience the Craft Sessions: Educational sessions with craft beer professionals to explore the business of brewing
- Beer Releases: Surprise new beers released from California’s top brewers
- Farm-to-Glass: Exhibits showcasing the process of brewing
- Happy Hour: End the night with IPAs and appetizers
Join me at this event made for beer-learners, beer-lovers and beer-experts!
