Dubbed simply The Festival 2014, the products of almost 100 breweries will be featured this weekend as a sort of preview for Brouwerij West, which will open next year at Crafted at the Port of Los Angeles.
Sadly, organizers have chosen for some reason to ignore most of the breweries in the burgeoning Los Angeles craft brew scene — only Torrance’s Monkish Brewing Co., will be present — but there are plenty from around the world.
Sounds like a good deal given that tickets to the event are at least $45.
Here’s more from the Burbank press release:
When patrons book a room at a Burbank hotel via www.visitburbank.com for a staycation on the night of October 18, they simply send their confirmation number and the name of the hotel to email@example.com. Complimentary tickets are valued at $55 each, for a total of $110, and will be available at the check-in booth when they arrive at the Biergarten.
In 2010 we perfected the recipe, winning a silver medal at the Great American Beer Festival in the Field/Pumpkin Beer category.
This holiday-inspired ale is brewed with real pumpkin and lots of spices for a delicious pumpkin pie flavor. A spicy finish balances this fresh, flavorful ale’s sweet start, while a combination of specialty malts adds a beautiful orange hue.
