What You Need to Know about the Summit Beer Festival

In less than 10 days, 160 breweries from across California will be lined up in front of the state Capitol in Sacramento. With that many beers to choose from, it might seem easy to get lost in just one “region” of the festival. How much time could you spend with Los Angeles breweries, Northern California breweries, San Diego breweries or Central California breweries?  We put together a list of four tips to help you explore and experience every part of the Summit Beer Festival:

  1. Bring a buddy! Everything is better with a friend, especially drinking beer. Make sure you grab a ticket online here before a line forms at the door.
  2. Plan your route! Check out the festival map and start planning out your “must visit” brewery booths.
  3. Prepare a list! With 500+ beers to try, you’re going to have to prioritize. You can also download our app the Google Play and Apple stores and save the beers you want to try again.

Pair that beer with food! Plan on taking a break for food at one of our 8 food trucks at the festival! Including:
