Brew Crew Want You

Battle of the Brews advance tix on sale at Harvest Fair

Get the jump on your Battle of the Brews tickets Friday through Sunday at the Sonoma County Harvest Fair.

Slated for March 31, 2012, the benefit beer-tasting event brings together more than 40, food vendors, live music and People’s Choice Voting to raise funds for in-need children.

In its sweet sixteen year, Battle of the Brews is getting an updated point of view with two new events — the Craft Cup, a premiere tasting of craft beers and the BiteClub ‘Wich Hunt — an epic sandwich contest pitting area chefs to come up with the greatest thing between sliced bread. This exclusive tasting takes place from 2 to 4pm. The “Main Event” Battle of the Brews, a sud-lovers dream tasting featuring dozens of breweries from around the country, and People’s Choice awards headline from 4 to 8pm. About 1,800 attendees are expected.

Stay tuned for final lineups and details from Battle hosts, the Active 20-30 Club of Santa Rosa.  Advance tickets at this weekend’s harvest fair are $40 for the Main Event, $95 for the Craft Tasting. Regular tickets will go on sale in early 2012.

The early bird gets the beer.

  1. I used to love going to the BotB when I was single and in my 20s. Over time the lines got longer and the amount of beer you were served got smaller, and most of the breweries ran out well before the night was even over. Not worth my 40 bucks anymore. Hopefully the Craft Cup and ‘Wich Hunt will class this event up a bit more and make it less of a drunken meat market.

    1. The rebranding of this event is for many of the reasons you mention. This event has raised close to $1,000,000 over the years which has been donated back to children’s chairities for at-risk youth in Sonoma County. Now that you aren’t single nor in your 20’s, we hope you come back with your spouse and close friends. Who wouldn’t want to have a fun time especially when helping children?
