Craft beer lovers rejoice, as you have several opportunities to try great beers ranging from local favorites, NorCal stalwarts and examples from around the world at the Raley Field Brewfest on Friday evening, the West Coast Brew Fest on Saturday and the Shriners Hospital Cyclebration Saturday evening.
The Raley Field Brewfest is hosted by the Northern California Brewers Guild and benefits the California Small Brewers Association. Almost 40 brewers from across Northern California will serve up their best beers in their annual celebration of California’s brewing history. I am particularly excited to see how an evening brewfest will do as the weather promises to be perfect. Music from Utz and the Shuttlecocks and Private Criminals. VIPs enter at 6pm, general public at 7pm. If you want to avoid the Ticketbastard charges for advance tickets, click here and enter code “RB”.
The West Coast Brew Fest is Sacramento’s largest annual brewfest, selling out year after year and always a packed party down by the river. 50+ breweries and beer companies from around the world will pour.
The Shriners Hospital Cyclebration will be a health and fitness fair during the day and a great party at night. Enjoy local breweries, wineries and restaurants and bid on a wide variety of prizes in a silent auction.

Not quite in the area, but there’s also the Lagunitas Beer Circus on Sunday. I’ve always wanted to check this out, but I can only handle one beer event per weekend: http://www.lagunitas.com/images_events/Lagunitas_BeerCircus_flyer_2010.jpg
Beer circus is this weekend, too?!?!!? DAMMIT!
I’ve been wanting to check that out, too.
