Where else to grab a beer than the Vine 2 Wine Classic! Did I just read that right, you ask? Beer at a wine event? You absolutely read that correctly. In the past, Circle of Hope’s Vine 2 Wine Classic has had a beer garden, which started out with 3 beers in 2011, then 6 beers in 2012. Last year, the 2013’s Vine 2 Wine Classic brought out 12 different beers to taste in the Moe Hafizi Beer Garden at CALARTS, which was a great success, and one we didn’t think we could top! Well, 2014 Circle of Hope Inc. and the Vine 2 Wine Classic committee is introducing our Barley 2 Brew section that will join our amazing Vine 2 Wine wineries in the main gallery, again at CALARTS this year. Here you will find 30 different Craft Brews, which will offer 60 plus different tastings for your pleasure, encompassing 60 feet of beer bliss. We are very excited to team up with Simon & Shannon Mee, owners of the Newhall Refinery Gastro Pub and the Egg Plantation, to provide us with a great line up of beers to taste. Here is a list of who will be there as of this article release:
Alaskan Brewing Company, Anderson Valley Brewing Company, Angel City Brewery, Deschutes Brewery, Figueroa Mountain Brewing Co., Firestone Walker Brewing Co., Golden Road Brewery, Kinetic Brewing Company, Stone Brewing Company, and SCV’s very own local Wolf Creek Brewing Company.
Do you prefer an American Pale Ale like Stone Pale Ale or a Robust Porter like Deschutes Black Butte, or does your taste lie somewhere in between? If you’d like to learn more about the many styles of craft beer being produced this is a great opportunity to sample a vast variety of beers and decide for yourself. If you’re a beer aficionado you won’t want to miss this event. The Vine 2 Wine Classic is August 16th at CALARTS from 6:30 – 10:30 p.m.
One low price gets you unlimited tastings of hundreds of amazing wines and beers. If that’s not enough, we’ll have wonderful tastings of signature foods from our local restaurants and caters. Those of you with a sweet tooth – have no fear; our great bakeries and confectioneries will have something very special for you.
Local crooner Jimmy Carnelli and his band will be providing the entertainment again this year. If you want to work off some of your food or libations, you can cut a rug on the Vine 2 Wine Classic dance floor!
If you haven’t attended the Circle of Hopes Vine 2 Wine Classic, you don’t want to miss it this year. Several guests from last year commented that they had no idea how large this event was.
Come out and spend the evening with us, you will have a great evening inside CALARTS in the Main Gallery. Tell your friends about it!
