Stockton Beer Week Brew Fest

As a kick off to Stockton Beer Week, Brew Fest gets the party started at the Stockton Arena on Saturday, July 14! Drink tasty beers from more than 30 breweries serving some of California’s most prolific craft names like Last Call Brewing Company from Oakdale, Altamont Beer Works from Livermore, Amador Brewing Company from Plymouth, and of course, local favorites like Channel Brewing and High Water from Stockton, to name a few!

With over 100 different beers available, guests will enjoy live music by local talented musician, David Atencio, food vendors such as nachos and pizza, and games!

The best part about this event is the price of admission. General admission tickets are just $35 in advance (price goes up to $45 the day of the event); VIP tickets are $45 in advance and get you in an hour early! VIP Passes will no be sold at the door. Of course, this is a 21-and-up event, and designated drivers can get their tickets for $10 for assisting their fellow friends with a safe ride home.
