Unlike last year, 2013’s festival will be a two-day event.
Tickets for the VIP Brewer Takeover happening Friday, November 1 at the Port Pavilion on Broadway Pier are $75 – $78.62 with service fee – and include unlimited beer samples plus bites from local, craft beer-friendly restaurants from 6 – 9 p.m. Rock Bottom La Jolla Brewmaster and former Guild President Marty Mendiola, speaking after an SDBG executive board meeting last night, said that “we are working to get brewers to bring rare/extra delicious beers to the Friday night session to be a bit more special.”
Support the Guild with $104.49, and you’ll have a ticket to Friday’s big night as well as Premier Access to Saturday’s fest at the same location. This pass grants attendees entry one hour earlier than general admission purchasers, plus a commemorative tasting glass and 20 three-ounce samples, which is five more than GA.
Food will be available for purchase from local, craft-beer friendly restaurants and food trucks.
Premier Access tickets for Saturday 1 – 5 p.m. are $57.92.
General Admission tickets for Saturday 2 – 5 p.m. are $42.39.
Designated driver tickets for Friday are $50 – remember, food’s included – and $25 for Saturday. Early purchase is not required.
Local music will be featured throughout both days.
Mendiola also added that the Guild is again working with Chef Celebration and Dr. Bill Sysak to develop the Torrey Pines Beer Garden event on November 10, which closes out Beer Week and sells out quickly every year.
