beer toastThis upcoming weekend will be quite eventful for beer lovers holding the two hottest tickets in the county.

First, Beerfest will take place at the Wells Fargo Center in Santa Rosa on Saturday, June 7. Sonoma County food purveyors will join 60+ breweries coming together to raise money for Face to Face Sonoma County Aids Network. Unlimited beer, beverages and food tastings with a souvenir glass are included in the price of admission. Tickets may still be purchased by clicking on the following link — http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/583673.

On Sunday June 8, Lagunitas Brewing Co. hosts its annual Beer Circus. This event is completely SOLD OUT and the brewery has stated that there will not be any tickets available the day of the event. Lagunitas has promised to post pictures on their website shortly after the day of the event. From personal experience I can tell you that those of you with tickets can count on a day jam packed with great beer, bearded women, acrobatic shows, music and strangely entertaining things to see and participate in all around you.

A ticket to either one of these events make this upcoming weekend something to look forward to. If you are fortunate enough to have a ticket for both, you surely will have a weekend to remember. As always I encourage all of those attending these events to have a great time and always designate a driver.
