The 2017 Carlsbad Brewfest is this Weekend!

The very popular 2017 Carlsbad Brewfest, sponsored by Harrah’s Resort Southern California, is just a little over a week away, on Saturday September 9. I suspect most beer, craft beer, and micro-brew lovers in the area already know this!

The Carlsbad Brewfest 2017 is being held at Holiday Park on Pio Pico near Carlsbad Village, just south of Carlsbad Village Drive and east of the 5 freeway, with beer tasting from Noon until 4:30. Beer lovers can select from 66 different beers from 33 of the area’s craft breweries.

In addition to beer tasting, the CarlsbadĀ  Brewfest will also offer music by the Oceanside Sound System (SKA punk sounds), as well as some tasty food and snacks to compliment your beer.

Given the nature of this event no one under the age of 21 will be admitted; they will be checking IDs at the entrance.

The Brewfest is planning for 1500 or so beer lovers, so you can expect some parking challenges. Other options include using a bicycle (they have places for locking up bikes), or take Lyft (use the special code CBREW).

Carlsbad Brewfest tickets can be purchase online for $50; they also offer a Designated Driver admission ticket at $10!
