DESCRIPTION The Third Annual MVCBF, bringing together local food, local beer, local music will be on April 1, 2012! Come for the beer, stay for the food. Come for the food, stay for the beer. Either way you need to be here. Most beer festivals are all about standing in line to get your taster and then go and stand in another line for another taster. Food is almost always an afterthought. However, that’s not how we do things at the MVCBF Fest. We believe beer AND food are natural partners and we offer a wide variety of both. Our food vendors are all chefs who bring their “A” game to the table. It’s part of our unique identity that we refuse to lose. Add to that, 3 fantastic bands and a partnership with Fresh Start Surgical Gifts and Wounded Warrior Homes, and you have a spectacular day of food, beer and fun for a great cause. 

A bit about our new partner: Wounded Warrior Homes is a 501(c)3, non-profit organization that serves medically discharged, single men and women of our armed forces with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Our mission is to provide affordable housing, hands-on resources, and a defined path for each member to transition from active-duty military service to independent living as a veteran of foreign wars.

We have some great changes for the upcoming Festival. There will be a VIP hour from 1pm to 2pm. This is where you get to taste some special brews that will be brought out in limited supply. The layout of the festival has also changed, to include seating, more room for lines, additional restroom facilities, plus just more room to mingle and enjoy what the brewers and chefs do best. This year there will also be an after party, poolside at the Reef Lounge. Limited tickets are available to the public. Basically, we listened to your feedback from last year and changed some things as we continue to try to put on the best festival possible to showcase local brewers, local chefs and local bands. 

Several Breweries have already confirmed. Mission, the Beer Company, Lightning, Ballast Point, Green Flash, Oggi's and Stone are all coming. Our chef line-up is also coming together with Hanis Cavin/Carnitas Snack Shack, Eron Baker/Baker Shake Foods, Miles Stillwell/Courtyard by Marriott, Alex Carballo/Stone World Bistro, Tyson Blake/O'briens Pub/Bailey BBQ, Karl Prohaska/Handlery Hotel, Jason Long/Bangin Burgers, Teegan Smith/Crown Point Catering, Jeff Rossman/Terra, Rich Sweeney/R Gang Eatery, Brad Lyons/Slater's 50/50 and Antonio Friscia/Gajin Noodles & Sake House are all on board. Tickets will be $45 on the day of the event for regular admission.

We are offering a few levels of tickets this year: 

General Admission: This ticket will get you into the festival with unlimited tastings of food and beverage. The festival will open to General Admission ticketholders at 2PM.

Designated Driver: This ticket will get you into the festival with unlimited tastings of food only. DD ticketholders will receive complimentary bottled water. 

VIP Admission: This ticket will get you into the festival 1 hour earlier than all other attendees and is limited to 200. VIP Hour will run from 1PM to 2PM. 

The fun will continue long after the festival is over! There will be a band at the Reef Lounge until 8PM. The outdoor kitchen will be up and running, with a full bar to accommodate all of your needs. 

Parking will not be available on site. We encourage you to take the trolley as we are less than 1 mile from the Fashion Valley station. We are working out off-site parking arrangements in Hotel Circle and will keep you posted.
