Perfect for all your East Bay BABSocialites or anyone else!!!
The Bay Area Craft Beer Festival in downtown Martinez began in 2010 to highlight the art and flavor of craft beer in Martinez and surrounding communities. BABS attended last year and the event scored a 90 for good selection of beer and location,(and the weather was warm.)
Produced by Main Street Martinez, the festival draws 1,000-2,000 people to enjoy beer from over 30 microbreweries, live music, and food from local restaurants.
The event is held at Waterfront Park on North Court St., a short walking distance from the Martinez Amtrak Station and free downtown parking.
Tickets: are $35 in advance, online or $45 at the door.
