Sorry, there are no upcoming dates. Check back soon.
This year the Battle of the Brews will continue the tradition of the Craft Cup, Sonoma County's largest and newest craft brew competition. Modeled after great beer and microbrew competitions from around the world the Craft Cup is bringing in dozens of renowned breweries and brewmasters to compete head to head in a juried competition. Industry leading judges will set out to name the true winner of the Battle of the Brews, the Craft Cup Best of Show, along category favorites and winners.
During the tasting event, we will also have the 'Wich Hunt, the Craft Cup Raffle, live music, brewing demonstrations and much more. This exclusive event is open only to sponsors and 1,000 ticket holders.
This ain't no pansy cook-off. The third annual 'Wich Hunt at Battle of the Brews is an iron-fisted sandwich brawl in which local chefs compete to construct the ultimate carbohydrate-protein-carbohydrate creation.
From Dagwoods to sliders, artisan BLT's, heroes, hoagies, banh mi, and beyond, the only constraint is being able to fit into the eager maws of our judges and fans. Oh, and taste incredible, because there will be no awards just for showing up. We're looking for off-the-charts, taste-bud exploding, meat-tastic (or alternative proteins), brain-bending creations that really showcase local talent.
Tickets to the 'Wich Hunt event are included in the Craft Cup tasting, and guests will be able to meet the competing chefs and taste their creations for them selves.
The Main Event begins at 4PM right where the Craft Cup VIP leaves off, and continues through 8PM. Up for grabs are the People’s Choice Awards for guests to vote on their favorite brewery or cidery amongst the 70+ that will be present, and their favorite food amongst 15 local restaurants. Live music will be on stage to keep things rocking, and patrons are invited to sample the afternoon away. Taps will be off at 7PM, but the music will continue through 8PM.
