Our Story of Beer
Each brewery represents a different story and dream. This year we are lucky to be pouring unlimited 4oz beer tastings from 24 California breweries. All of our breweries will share rare and specialty beers, and many of them will be accompanied by special brewery VIPs including brewmasters, brewery owners, and representatives. Learn more about Beer VIPs on our Beer VIPs page
Beer Art Pairings
In addition, some of the breweries have decided to take on the challenge of pairing their beer with art. They have chosen to partner with artists from the Sacramento region to come with up with new ways for you to experience their beer. Check our Art page for a list of the pairings.
Beer Art Lounges
What happens when you give breweries an entire alcove space to tell their story? You get Beer Art Lounges. The first of their kind in Sacramento, 21st Amendment Brewing Company and Firestone Walker Brewing Company have taken on the challenge to build their own unique space within the Art of Beer.
21st Amendment Brewing Company - 21A Lounge
Named after the brewpub in San Francisco, this 1930s style lounge is complete with lighting, furniture, accent rug and Beer VIPs Brewmaster Shaun O'Sullivan and Regional Rep Quinn Gardner. The lounge features concept drawings that show the evolution of how their beer labels are made. Enjoy this setting with a rare beer straight from the brewpub, snagged exclusively for this event.
Firestone Walker Brewing Company - Taproom Lounge
Inspired by their main Taproom in Paso Robles, CA, the lounge will feature photographs from the brewery (pictured right), Firestone paraphernalia, and an artistic arrangement of barrels used in the actual production of their beer. Pair this setting with rare beers and the company of Regional Rep Justin Laffoday and you have the Paso Robles experience right in Sacramento.
