The winter seasonal beers and festive holiday releases have begun to line store shelves, and you can sample over 200 different holiday, seasonal, and special beers and ciders at Saturday’s BevMo! Holiday Beer Fest at the Golden Road Brewery campus.
Admission to the event is $45 and would appear to include unlimited pours from over 100 breweries between 1pm and 5:30pm. There are also a $60 VIP tickets available that get you in the door an hour early for some special tastings and snacks.
The whole celebration goes down at the Golden Road Brewery in Atwater Village, and apart from the lack of public transportation options serving the brewery it is becoming a very popular spot for beer events (and should prove even more popular when their dedicated event and meetings space opens next month).
A wide variety of breweries from Southern California and around the world will be pouring beers, including local favorites The Bruery, Hangar 24, and Firestone Walker (though most of the LA-based brewers are not on the official list) and international heavy hitters like Corsendonk, Unibroue, and St Feuillien.
