Join us as we celebrate the 31st annual California Festival of Beers on Saturday, May 27, 2017. Each year attendees sample, learn, and enjoy beers from breweries locally and from around the world. Growing from a humble event in the back parking lot of a local pub in San Luis Obispo, the California Festival of Beers has become one of the largest and oldest festivals paying tribute to beer.
BeerFest, as it is affectionately named, has become a San Luis Obispo institution and brings over 3,000 attendees each year to California's Central Coast. Because of the event's popularity, each year the event sells out.
The Festival is a benefit event managed and maintained by Hospice of San Luis Obispo County (Hospice SLO County), a non-profit, non-medical hospice that provides counseling, in-home respite, and communtiy education at no charge to the community. Hospice SLO County receives 100% of the proceeds that stay local.
This year the California Festival of Beers will continue in its tradition of craft beers, live music, and sunshine. Each year the Festival draws a wider selection of beer, dining, entertainment and sponsors than years past, and this year is no exception. The Saturday Grand Tasting will take place again in the Madonna Inn Meadows, a beautiful expanse of lawn nestled between parks, mountains, and hotels in San Luis Obispo, California. The meadow is the perfect location to spend the day enjoying the BeerFest with more of your friends, brewers, live music food and merchandise vendors, and interactive games. The BeerFest is sure to be a grand time for all.
