This year’s festival promises to be the biggest and best festival yet and will be held at a brand new location at The Port Pavilion on the Broadway Pier. The indoor/outdoor event will feature live music and 60 different breweries serving up to 120 varieties of beer.
The event is a cancer-fighting fundraiser and has raised over $550,000 to date. Inside the festival will be food items and munchies for sale, along with a selection of fine wines for purchase by the glass.
Staffed by volunteers with all proceeds benefiting local cancer charities, The San Diego Festival of Beer is the largest fundraiser of San Diego Professionals Against Cancer.
This group of local professionals decided to throw a new kind of fundraiser in 1993 when the local beer scene was just only beginning and there were no other festivals in town. 700 people showed up downtown at the Embarcadero to drink craft beers for a great cause after the newly reformed group asked some of their friends at the breweries to donate some beer.
Over Half a Million Dollars Have Been Raised
Ever since the first edition, the festival has grown every year, drawing more than 4,000 San Diegans. 300 volunteers help run the event and to date, over half a million dollars have been raised and donated to local charities like Cancer Angels and Rady Children’s Hospital. The festival aims to be the biggest and best until now, inviting everybody to get together with their friends and raise a pint for a great cause.
