Stockton Beer Week: Come Experience the Best Craft Beer in Stockton, California

If you enjoy craft beer, California is a good place to get your fix! Home to more than 680 craft breweries, the Golden State isn’t just making great suds, it’s celebrating them. And in Stockton, California that’s exactly what we’ll be doing when a new seasonal batch of local brews takes center stage during Stockton Beer Week September 10-19, 2021!

Stockton Beer Week Brew Fest

As a kick off to Stockton Beer Week, Stockton Brew Fest gets the party started at Weber Point Events Center in Downtown Stockton on September 11th! Drink tasty beers from more than 30 breweries serving some of California’s most prolific craft names like Hopgrown Hops Brewing Company from Livermore, Tioga-Sequoia Brewing Company from Fresno, Sacrament Brewing from Sacramento, and many many more!

Guests will also enjoy live music by Kate Smash, Radical Times and Network, food trucks, art vendors curated by Goodstock Productions, and games!

The best part about this event is the price of admission. General admission tickets are just $40 in advance (price goes up to $50 the day of the event); VIP tickets are $50 in advance and get you in an hour early! VIP Passes will not be sold at the door. Of course, this is a 21-and-up event, and designated drivers can get their tickets for $15 for assisting their fellow friends with a safe ride home. Come hang out with us on September 11 from 12-1 (VIP hour) and then general admission begins at 1pm! Get ticket information here!
