May 2, 2013
Oh May, what a wonderful month. The start of the summer movie season, home to Memorial Day, American Craft Beer Month, and the month with the fewest letters so people don’t exactly know if they should abbreviate it. May is also the month when the weather starts to warm up, people feel they need to start getting a tan, and would love to stand outside drinking beer while they are perfecting that tan. So, from that notion, the summer beer festival season gets into full swing. And do you know how happy we are that it’s beer festival season? Happier than a) a brick visiting the Great Wall of China, b) a geologist at a rock concert, c) an apple wearing Fruit of the Loom. (Take a guess in the comments section below if you so wish). And boy this season is going to be a doozy. You can go to our events page for a full list of where we are going to be, but here is a brief preview:
Sunset Celebration Weekend – This event is located in front of Sunset Magazine’s headquarters in Menlo Park, CA June 1st & 2nd. This festival features exhibitors and speakers covering beer, wine, food, home and garden. It is truly a feast for all of your senses.
Raley’s Field 7th Annual Brewfest – While this event is a little bit outside of the Bay Area (located in Sacramento), the trip will most definitely be worth it. On June 7th, not only do you get to walk around on the field which is home to the Oakland Athletics triple A affiliate, the Sacramento River Cats, you will get to sample beers from over 60 beer vendors.
Breastfest – Not only a Bay Area staple, but a fundraiser for a fantastic cause. Breastfest is one of the largest beer festivals at San Francisco’s Ft. Mason. On July 13th, you can sample beers from a multitude of local brewers while raising money for breast cancer treatment.
4th Annual Blues & Brews Festival – Located in Pleasant Hill on July 27th, participants can enjoy a day of beer tasting, delicious food and free music from six different bands. Just in case unlimited beer tastings isn’t music to your ears, they will also have music for your ears. What could be better?!
As previously mentioned, this is just a small sampling of where we will be this summer; so, check out our continuously updating events page for all our events.
In addition to these public festivals, we also love to participate in corporate events. If your company is having a picnic, get-together, shindig, hootenanny, or just a plain old meeting and you’d like to have some Strike beer for it, please check out our corporate events page.
Well, if you’re anything like me, that is about enough reading for one day. So with that I wish you a wonderful day and we hope to see you out at all our wonderful events this summer.
Cheers! - Drew
