San Francisco , CA - The Breastfest

"The Breastfest is a unique fundraiser in that it is 100% organized by volunteers and 100% of all proceeds go directly to low-income women who are battling cancer right now. These women are our mothers, grandmothers, sisters, aunts, friends and cousins, and they are truly grateful for your support. We raise funds by selling tickets to the beer festival, which includes endless eats and bottomless cups at no additional charge. The Breastfest features over 80 Breweries from across the West Coast and beyond, several local wineries, live music, raffle and food tastings from a variety of vendors. It's a good time for a great cause!"

Milwaukee, WI - Milwaukee Firkin Craft Beer Fest 

"We think it high time that Milwaukee craft beers got their own fest. After all, it was beer that made Milwaukee famous worldwide not cryptosporidium. Ok, we're famous for two things now. Well in case you haven't noticed, Brew Town got its mojo back with brands like Sprecher, Lakefront, Chameleon and Milwaukee Brewing and at brewpubs such as Water Street, Stonefly, Rockbottom, and St. Francis. The folks at these places are serious about their beer and we think it's time to celebrate the ales of their labor. Milwaukee Firkin Craft Beer Fest is a celebration of Milwaukee beer, past, present and future. We know our beer is great now but the future looks pretty firkin bright from where we are sitting. After all, we're from Milwaukee and we ought to know…yah der hey! This fest is going to be a big firkin deal!"

Chico, CA - Beer Camp Across America Northwest Edition

"Beer Camp Across America will feature seven stops-in cities with thriving craft beer cultures-moving geographically west to east, much like the craft movement has historically spread. Each tour stop will feature that city's local and surrounding regional brewers. The festivals will appropriately begin and end at Sierra Nevada's two brewing locations, kicking off in Chico where it took root in 1980, and culminating in Mills River, NC for the grand opening of its East Coast brewery. Each festival will feature up to two beers per brewery, food vendors, and live music by the MarchFourth Marching Band spectacle. Tickets are now on sale at www.SierraNevada.com/BeerCamp and are limited to 5,000 per venue. Tickets cost $65 for general admission, which includes a tasting glass and unlimited tastings (in most locations, see the website for full details). A designated driver ticket is available for $30. Ticket prices are exclusive of taxes and fees, which will vary according to location. In conjunction with the festivals, Sierra Nevada has partnered with a dozen exceptional craft breweries to create 12 different beers for one mixed 12-pack - including 10 bottles and two cans - another first in the craft beer world. The Beer Camp Across America 12-pack will be available throughout the U.S. this summer, and the dozen brewing partners will join selective legs of the festival tour."

Several more stops will be in July including San Diego (July 20), Denver (July 25), and Chicago July 27). For complete schedule information, tickets, and beer information visit Sierra Nevada's Beer Camp Across America's webpage.
