Some of the awesome breweries at the festival will be Dale Bros (of course), Hangar 24, Lagunitas Brewing, Ballast Point and Dr. Jekyll’s. For those who don't drink beer, there are options such as Galleano Winery, 101 Cider House, Joseph Filippi Winery and Reverend Nat’s Hard Cider. For the designated driver there will be craft soda by Dale Bros and Alosta.
Don’t you worry about not having delicious food to go with your beer; there will be amazing gourmet food vendors. Some of the vendors will be Mesquite BBQ, The Lobos Truck, Big Easy Sandwich and The Grilled Cheese Truck. Live music will be provided by Upstream, a California based band that plays reggae, soca, ska and junkaroo.
