Where to Celebrate Stockton Beer Week in Stockton, California

Visit Stockton

Celebrate Stockton Beer Week Friday, July 7 through Sunday, July 16. Guest blogger Lauren Sage highlights her favorite places to celebrate to Stockton Beer Week 2017!

Hey guys! For those that may not know me, I'm Lauren and I've been working at the Abbey for five years and have been blogging about beer for the last four. It's been amazing to see how Stockton Beer Week has grown and expanded each year with the help of Visit Stockton and all of the unique establishments here throughout town. It's a busy week for us industry folk, but I'm going to try and sneak away to spend some time at the following events through the rest of the week. Hope to see you there!

Tuesday 7/11- Donut and Beer Pairing at the Abbey

Here at the Abbey, we're hosting a collaborative event with Trail Coffee Roasters this evening. We've picked four beers and are pairing them with their specialty donuts. All of these donuts will be baked to pair with the brews and all are absolutely astounding! I feel this is one of the more unique events, and not one to be missed out on. Starts at 5pm until the pairing is sold out!


Wednesday 7/12-Learn to Brew at Channel Brewing

I think it's great that Stockton has a new brewery and it's great to see the support they have already. If you have always wanted to learn how to brew and/or check out Channel Brewing. This is an awesome event to learn more. Best part? Once it's done, you'll get a pint on the house when it's ready to pour. The event is from 7-9pm, check it out!


Thursday 7/13- Cycle for Shandies

This collaborative event between the San Joaquin Bike Coalition and newer restaurant, BellaVista Cucina Italiana seems like it would be a lot of fun. It includes a low impact ride around downtown Stockton, and ends back at the restaurant. They will have a guest bartender, Alissa, who is one of my personal favorite tenders (and people!), and is serving up specialty shandy cocktails. Bikes and beers? Yes, please! Event starts at 6:30.


Friday 7/14- Meet the Brewer at Taps Barrel House

If you've never met Steve or Barri Altimari, the owners and brewer from HighWater Brewing. You've truly missed out on a great time. They are so kind and funny. You can have the chance to meet them, drink their beers paired with cheeses at Taps Barrel House this evening starting at 6pm.


Saturday 7/15- Beer Week Alley at the Stockmarket

The Stockmarket has been an essential part of Stockton summers for the past couple of years. Now, it gets to be a part of Stockton Beer Week! Stop by the vendor and food fair for all things beery, from food to accessories. The event time is 9am-3pm. Beat the heat and enjoy the crowd!


Sunday 7/16- Beer Brunch at Cast Iron

Come fight your beer week hangover with the crew at Cast Iron Trading as they prepare to launch a weekly brunch starting this week. This brunch is designed to have beer related items and pairings. The food is always good but the crowd is even better. Check this one out for sure! Starts at 10am.


Stockton Beer Week is always a great time and has the best variety of people coming out to these events. Have fun, check out new places but most of all--be safe and responsible. Cheers!
