If you’re familiar with the Beer Fest circuit in Southern California, you’ve probably heard whispers (or ecstatic screams) about the newest one coming to San Pedro on November 8th/9th. The Shelton Bros Beer Fest is being referred to as the FW Invitational of Southern California and boasts one of the most incredibly international beer lines ups I’ve ever seen. To sweeten the deal, it’s being held at the soon to open Brouwerij West warehouse on the port. For those that haven’t been down to see this spot, it’s massive, making it perfect for a festival.
Not only will there be a fantastic international brewery turnout spread out over four sessions, two each on saturday and sunday, but there will also be food provided from local restaurant vendors. You’ll also get a sneak peak at what is sure to be one of the most amazing brewery experiences in So Cal organized by industry veteran, Brian Mercer of Brouwerij West.
For a full list of what’s pouring go here (http://www.sheltonbrothers.com/festival/) , but some standouts include Cantillon, Jolly Pumpkin, Mahr’s Brau, Arizona Wilderness, Bagby Beer, Nogne, Firestone Walker and, of course, Brouwerij West.
Tickets for the fest are around $45 bucks with drink ticket packages starting at $5 for a pack of five.
