Saturday, February 8 | Brewbies Festival: One great brewery giving its all is terrific on its own, but one great cause bringing numerous great breweries together to give their all for charity—including one-and-done beers that may never be poured anywhere else—is even better. Such is the case with this epic beer festival benefitting the Keep A Breast Foundation. | Bagby Beer Co., 601 South Coast Highway, Oceanside, VIP: 12-5 p.m., General Admission: 1-5 p.m.
Saturday, February 8 | Carnival of Caffeination: Modern Times Beer puts on stellar beer fests by leaning on the collective radness of their nationwide network of brewery friends. For this fete, they dip into the coffee-roaster portion of their rolodex to present scads of rare and delicious java and dark beers. Hinting at what to expect, this year’s event is dubbed “Pastry Palooza”! | Modern Times Beer, 3725 Greenwood Street, Lomaland, 12-4 x.m.
