A unique beer festival is bubbling up on the Westside. This Saturday, March 29, Tap, Cheer & Give will pair locally produced craft brew with cause-supporting brands like TOMS to create an afternoon of tastings and entertainment.
Held at Santa Monica's startup community hub Cross Campus, from 2-6pm, the event will feature 20 beers on tap and 5 cause-supporting brands. Everyone receives a 5oz souvenir glass to sample a stellar lineup of craft beer from local breweries including Golden Road, Ladyface and Venice Duck Brewery. If Venice Duck Brewery has its Dowgtown Duck IPA on tap, it is not to be missed. The guys behind Venice Duck also own Melody Bar & Grill, which will be in attendance, along with Abbot Kinney’s Pork Belly’s Sandwich Shop. (See below for the full list of breweries and vendors.) Home-brewed sodas, coffee and herbal teas can be sampled too. And for the ultimate beer nerds, 20-minute crash courses on beer and how to evaluate them will be held by experts including Tomm Carroll, beer judge and writer for The Celebrator and Beer Paper LA.
“On top of all that tasting, attendees will also get the chance to purchase some seriously cool gear from the brands featured at the event and by doing so, support the non-profit causes that these companies give back to. For example, for every pair of sunglasses bought from SOLO Eyewear funds are donated to provide eye care for people in need. Or with every purchase of a tasty organic nut bar from This Bar Saves Lives, a life-saving packet of food is delivered to a child in need. In addition, every attendee is able to select one of the five causes represented at the event to which 10% of their ticket price will be donated.” - Tap, Cheer & Give
Tickets are $40 online and $45 at the door, and attendees can select one of the five causes to donate 10 percent of their ticket price.
