Hop Culture is headed to the West Coast! On April 22nd, 2018, come meet the brewers and try unlimited pours from some of the best breweries in the country. We’ll have food, beer, music, and exclusive merch and glassware from designer Sam Taylor. Proceeds benefit City Slicker Farms, a food justice organization in Oakland.
When is this happening?
The festival runs over two sessions on Sunday, April 22nd, 2018.
Is there an age limit?
All attendees must be at least 21 years old with a valid ID. Please no children or strollers.
What do I get with my ticket?
The General Admission ticket gets you access to the festival for one session. Upon entering, you’ll receive a limited-edition taster designed by Sam Taylor, and a brochure that includes a map of the festival.
The Designated Driver ticket gets you access to the festival for one session, but you won’t be able to drink! Upon entering, you’ll receive a ticket that’s redeemable for a complimentary t-shirt from our merch stand.
Where are the proceeds going?
Proceeds from Juicy Brews WestFest benefit City Slicker Farms, which works to support high-yield urban farms and community gardens because healthy, affordable food is a universal human right.
Will there be food?
We’ll have food available from the venue, in addition to at least one food truck and maybe even an ice cream truck. Vegan options available.

When is last call?
Brewers will be instructed to stop serving beer 10 minutes before the end of each session.
Who will be pouring the beer?
At all of our Juicy Brews festivals we work to make sure that a representative from the brewer is on hand to pour beer, answer questions, and goof off. Typically this is the head brewer or founder.
Which beers will be served?
The beers at the fest are extremely fresh and limited release, so it’s hard to predict brewing schedules well in advance. However, we’ll release the beer lists in the week leading up to the fest as they become available.
Are the beers the same at both sessions?
Typically yes. Any differences will be very minimal.
Will there be enough beer?
We bring enough beer to our festivals that the majority of breweries will be pouring beer for the entire fest. However, due to their popularity, some breweries will kick their kegs before last call, typically within the last 45 minutes. We do our best to avoid this, but we also want to avoid wasting beer.
Is there a map?
Yes. You’ll receive a layout of the festival upon entering.
Will you have merchandise?
Absolutely. Our tasters, tekus, shirts, pins, and stickers are designed by London-based Sam Taylor.
Will I be able to leave my coat/backpack anywhere?
We’ll have a complimentary coat check.
How do I apply for media passes?
Send an email to Kenny at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the name of your publication or account and your estimated reach.
Please DO NOT open any cans or bottles during the festivals. For legal reasons, they will be confiscated.
It’s a beer fest and we want everyone to have a good time, but anyone that’s visibly intoxicated and acting like a clown will be asked to leave.
Tickets are non-refundable and subject to applicable taxes and fees, as well as changes. All sales are final, no exceptions!
We look forward to seeing you on April 22nd!
