Taste of Brews, Southern California’s premier beer-tasting festival, has added Dana Point to its 2011 schedule. Lantern Bay Park, a spectacular venue overlooking Dana Point Harbor, plays host to an “Oktoberfest” themed event on Saturday, October 15. Dana Point follows Taste of Brews’ inaugural event which takes place on Saturday, August 20 at Lighthouse Park in Long Beach. More information, including additional dates and locations along with customized tasting opportunities, is available at www.tasteofbrews.com.
A refreshing new approach to beer tasting, Taste of Brews pays homage to the passion and excitement that today’s full-flavored craft beers are generating among consumers while providing an exciting platform to introduce new styles. More than 50 of today’s hottest brands will sample pilsners, ales, lagers, bocks, seasonal and specialty brews. Several local restaurants and gastropubs will sample “beer appropriate” cuisine as part of the day’s activities.
Lantern Bay Park will be transformed into a fall festival featuring Oktoberfest, an Oom Pah band, lederhosen-clad staff, German beers and the colors and flavors of autumn. General admission attendees will sample among dozens of brands. Premium VIP packages take the tasting experience to a heightened level with demonstrations from legendary brewmasters, private reserves, a “Belgian-themed” lounge area and other upscale amenities. All guests will be treated to live musical entertainment and a dynamic Master of Ceremonies (MC).
