A Statewide Celebration of Beer Visits Marin County

If you’re into beer, Marin County is the place to be this weekend. Our state’s traveling celebration of hops – the California Beer Festival – sets up on Saturday, June 20 at Stafford Lake Park in nearby Novato.

From our location at Serenity At Larkspur, it’s about 20 miles by car to the event, which offers samplings from 1 to 4:30 p.m. Along with over 70 craft beers on tap, the CBF features live entertainment, food and specialty vendors, and even bocce ball.

The California Beer Fest hosts events throughout the year and all around the state, with other upcoming events planned for Santa Cruz, San Dimas and Ventura. Not surprising, however, the CBF staff calls the Marin venue “the most picturesque location of all,” and “the perfect place to spend a Saturday afternoon with great friends, live music, delicious sliders and of course, amazing craft beer.”

The popular musical acts performing at the Marin festival include Wonderbread 5, IrieFuse, and The Grain. Tickets can be purchased online in advance, or at the door and range from $70 for VIP to $25 for designated drivers. Parking is available on site, a shuttle will be available from the Highway 101 and Rowland Blvd Park stop, and there’s also the unique Bicycle Brustop bike valet service.

The ales, lagers, stouts and more will be flowing close to home tomorrow. Hope you make the trip and enjoy…and play it safe!
