The beer scene in the Bay Area is vast and becoming bigger still. These days “beer fests” can escape the notice of most of us. One of these is the Oakand A’s beerfest, which takes place this Saturday, June 21, 4:05 p.m – 6:05 p.m. at the Coliseum, featuring the usual corporate brewers, plus many, many others; Bear Republic, Lagunitas, Firestone-Walker, Deschutes, Gordon Biersch, Mount St. Helana…
What? You ask. Yes, it’s become an annual event and it always occurs with no publicity in the beer world. Oh, I haven’t looked, but there may be an ad in the Celebrator Beer News, buried in the back pages.
Details: Saturday, June 21, 4:05 – 6:05 p.m. (Sounds like a schedule from my old high school principal) East Side Club, McAfee Coliseum. Admission free with a game ticket, additional tastings can be purchased. Info: 510-638-4900, ext. 4040 or buy a game ticket on line here.
While we’re on the subject of beer fests, check my post earlier on the Scotish Games in Campbell in the South Bay, also this Saturday afternoon.
