2017 Beach, Brews and BBQ in Newport will pour some legendary craft beers
Some of California’s best craft breweries have stepped up to help on Saturday, Oct. 28 with Beach, Brews & BBQ, an annual fundraiser for the Orange County Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. The event starts at 2 p.m. at Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort.
“This year we’ll have 25 breweries and 8 restaurants, ” said Roxanne Rothafel, the chapter’s development director. “We’ll also have the California BBQ Association doing a demo on meat smoking.”
Escondido’s well-regarded Stone Brewing will be a featured brew in the beer garden this year, Rothafel said. “They’ll serve some of their unique collaborative bottles.” (Craft breweries often team up to create a beer.) Other breweries at the event include Paso Robles’ Firestone Walker Brewing Company, San Diego’s Ballast Point Brewing and Belching Beaver Brewery, L.A.’s Angel City Brewery and Golden Road Brewing, and Oregon’s Deschutes Brewery.
Beach, Brews & BBQ continues until 6 p.m. at the Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort, 1131 Back Bay Drive, Newport Beach. Admission is $50, which includes a commemorative festival glass, unlimited tastings and barbecue. The $60 VIP admission lets you in an hour early and gives you access to exclusive beer and wine tastings. Designated drivers get in for $25. Parking is $10.
