Taste of Brews coming to Riverside Saturday

Remember a few weeks back when there were 11 Inland Empire breweries represented at Craft Brewing Company’s second anniversary?

Was Lake Elsinore a bit too far to drive for ya?

Is Riverside a little closer?

Many of those breweries are scheduled to be at the Taste of Brews Saturday (June 2) at White Park, 3901 Market St., in downtown Riverside, alongside about twenty other brewers.

The event runs until 4 p.m., with general admission at 1 p.m. and V.I.P. admission at noon.

Inland Empire breweries which are scheduled to attend include: Chino’s I & I Brewing, Temecula’s Black Market Brewing Co., Riverside’s Packinghouse Brewing Co.,  Redlands’ Hangar 24 Craft Brewery, Riverside’s Inland Empire Brewing Company, Moreno Valley’s Kat Daddy Breweries, Riverside’s The Big Cheese Pizza Co. & Brewery, Lake Elsinore’s Craft Brewing Company, Temecula’s Weins Brewing Company and Corona’s Main Street Brewery.

As well as the breweries, the Riverside Homebrew Crew will be represented.

In addition to unlimited beer samples, your admission ticket includes food samples from select local restaurants (while they last), water, snacks and musical entertainment.

Local restaurants serving up samples include Mi Tortilla Mexican Grill, The Salted Pig, Killarney’s Restaurant and Irish Pub, The Beach Sports Grill and Bar, Gram’s Mission Bar-B-Q and Sushi Kawa.

For food truck fans, the BACON MANia and Steel City Sandwich trucks are scheduled to be there. Unfortunately, you’ve gotta pay extra for their food.

Tickets are $32.50 (plus $2.78 service fee) for general admission, $42.50 (plus $3.33 service fee) for V.I.P. admission. If you use the promo code “IE5,” you’ll shave $5 off the above prices.

If you purchase more than six tickets, the price drops to $26.50 (plus $2.45 service fee) per general admission ticket and $34.50 (plus $2.89 service fee) for V.I.P. admission.
