California Beer Festival comes to Claremont

Tickets are still available for this weekend's California Beer Festival. The event will run from noon to 5 p.m. on Saturday just outside of the Packing House in Village West.

About 30 beer booths will line the north and south sides of First Street between Oberlin and Cornell avenues. The beer vendors will offer craft beers from microbreweries around California. Event organizers are hoping to attract between 800 to 1000 beer enthusiasts from around the region for the event.

Participants can expect live music from 3 different bands, including Rey Fresco, Orlando Napier and the Dogs. Food will be available for purchase from Eureka Burgers, which plans to open in the Packing House later this year, Tutti Mangia Italian Grill and Casablanca Mediterranean restaurant.

General admission is for the event is $40. Tickets will be sold at Rhino Records, the Hip Kitty or online at the Beer Festival's website. A portion of the proceeds from the event will benefit the non-profit Dyslexia Awareness Resource Center.

Since alcohol will be served at the event, organizers are working to get discounted rates on taxi cab fares from the event and for local hotels. Discounted designated driver tickets for $25 will also be sold to those who want to attend the festival but not drink alcohol.

The California Beer Festival has run successfully for 2 years in Ventura. If the event is successful in Claremont, the Festival may become a permanent annual fixture in the city.
