Beer Country recently had an opportunity to chat with Joseph Tucker, RateBeer Executive Director, about the upcoming RateBeer Best Awards & Beer Festival. The two day event will take place on Saturday, January 30th and Sunday, January 31st.

The Awards banquet will be held at the Hyatt Vineyard Creek Hotel and Spa in Downtown Santa Rosa, on the 30th. Owners and brewers from over forty of the most prestigious breweries will be traveling from places as far as China to attend. This will be a VIP event limited to five hundred attendees.

The following day the RateBeer Best festivities move to a private hangar, at the Charles M. Schulz Sonoma County Airport. Tucker is expecting 2,000 attendees at this beer festival, which will welcome many of the award winning breweries to pour their beer in California, for the first time.
