Also, you have your tickets to the kickoff event that’s just over a week away, right? If not, click here.
Pechanga Resort and Casino in Temecula is hosting its ninth annual Microbrew and Craft Beer Festival from 1-5 p.m. Saturday (June 10) in Pechanga’s Grand Ballroom.
In addition to unlimited samplings of brews from about two dozen local (and not-so-local) breweries, participants can listen to live music and taste chili from the Pechanga chefs’ chili cook-off.
The massive LA Beer Week downtown kickoff is just about a week away and the official beer — dubbed Unity but brewed by a different brewery every year — will be released Friday at more than 20 county locations.
It is, not surprisingly, an IPA also available in El Segundo Brewing’s hallmark 22-ounce bombers.

Mount Baldy’s annual Battle of the Brews returns this Sunday (June 4), and from what we hear, it almost didn’t happen.
Taste of Brews Inland Empire makes its return to Riverside on Saturday (May 20).
The event is set for noon to 5 p.m. at White Park, 3901 Market St.
One of the biggest beer events in Southern California takes place Saturday (May 20): The Hangar 24 AirFest & 9th Anniversary Celebration.
Simply head to Pomona tomorrow (May 6), where the San Gabriel Valley Chapter of the National Latino Peace Officers Association is hosting a Fiesta and Craft Beer Festival at the Phillips Mansion.
Tucked away in a tiny Torrance Boulevard storefront next to a laundromat and barber shop sits Little Shop of Mary, which makes incredible bahn mi sandwiches for just $7 apiece.
Quite often on Saturday I’ll stop by and take one with me to a local brewery — Strand and Smog City are five minutes away — because those Vietnamese sandwiches complement craft beer perfectly.
Check it out Saturday at Scholb Brewing when they will have the lemongrass chicken, sesame beef and (a personal favorite) slow roasted pork.
You will never eat a Lee’s again.
Not often enough, but you’ll get your chance Saturday (April 29).
