Stone 19th Anniversary Celebration & Invitational Beer Festival
The Stone 19th Anniversary Celebration & Invitational Beer Festival is the largest craft beer festival in Southern California, taking over the entire Cal State San Marcos Campus on August 15th, 2015. What is great about this festival is that it’s not only a huge event for Stone and the craft beer community in general, but it is also Stone’s largest fundraising event of the year, with over $1.8M total raised through Stone’s Anniversary celebrations at the time of writing, and 100% of the proceeds going to wonderful charities like Surfrider Foundation, The Boys and Girls Club of San Marcos, The Palomar Family YMCA, and Fight ALD.
There are two different tasting sessions (11am-2pm and 3pm-6pm), featuring an incredible 240 beers from over 60 breweries! There are also a number of additional private tasting sessions with special limited production beers, presented by some incredible brewers including Greg Koch from Stone, Kim Lutz from Saint Archer, Peter Zien from Alesmith, and many more. The festival includes a Stone collaboration tent featuring many of their collaborative efforts, live music in multiple areas, a 19th Anniversary commemorative tasting glass, and more. The Stone 19th Anniversary Celebration & Invitational Beer Festival promises to be a momentous occasion not to be missed, find out more about on the Stone website at anniv.stonebrewing.com – we hope to see you there!
