About

It’s the largest Beer Festival ever in California!

It’s an experiential, hands-on Exposition for beer lovers!

Two days of tasting, learning and fun for craft beer lovers, home brewers, the craft beer industry, retailers and everyone interested in the exciting craft beer movement in California!

Learn everything from beer styles, how to pair the right food with the right beer, to how to age beers at home, how to homebrew, host your own tasting and even how to start a brewery. Wander around an exciting Expo Hall to share a pint with your favorite brewer, learn what goes into your beer from local hop farmers, watch (and taste) award winning chefs pair culinary art with your favorite beers and experience the culture and community of California’s craft beer industry. Demo’s, exhibits and of course beer samples from around the state.

On Saturday afternoon is the California Craft Brewers Showcase Beer Festival! More than 150 California breweries will be arranged geographically in front of the Capitol. Taste beers you will never see outside of the brewery. Unique and coveted beers from every corner of the state. Admission allows for unlimited sampling.

Tickets are available for just the Expo, just the Beer Festival or both!

Learn what you’re drinking. Taste what California is brewing.

PLUS:

  • Meet and talk to California’s leading brewers.
  • A “job fair” to learn about working in the craft brewing industry
  • Taste beers from all over the state, many of which are only sold at the brewery
