As the weather starts to heat up, there's nothing better to cool yourself off with than a nice cold beer. Fortunately, Sacramento has got one more beer fest before the valley's dry heat makes it too unbearable to go outside during sunlight hours. West Coast Brew Fest is back on May 17 and will be giving us all a quick hit of some of the best breweries our fine sliver of the United States has to offer. Featuring breweries from California, Oregon and Washington, WCBF is the first brew fest to celebrate the contributions the West Coast has made to the micro brew industry. This year's lineup includes Firestone Walker, Anchor, Ninkasi, New Belgium, Lagunitas, Ballast Point, 21st Amendment, Lost Cost, New Glory and many more. And fortunately, attendees don't have to prioritize. This is a tokenless tasting, meaning it's all you can drink (though please, don't drink all you can drink).
The event will also have food (expect barbecue, sausages, Mexican food and teriyaki), live bands and craft vendors. Guests are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets if they want to get comfortable while sipping their beers. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Robla Education Foundation, which supports communities in improving their schools. For more information about this event, see here.
