The Brew's on First Beer fest is taking a swing at a new twist on the ballpark and craft beer festival experience. Sample some beers that are sure to be a home run, while playing some ball at the park and tasting twists on ball park food prepared by some of the best local restaurants: Abreo Restaurant, Lucha Cantina and The Olympic Tavern.
A tailgating area will be available starting at noon with games, grilling and more. Bring your tailgate gear to pregame the fun.
Special beer releases will take place on the hour and the bases. Start at first base and head your way around the bases to home. Go out and hit/kick some balls on the field with a wiffle and kickball home run derby. There will be multiple ways to win prizes!
This is not just another beer event - this is an event for the (21+) kids in all of us.
