The San Diego Brewers Guild's annual spring bookend event will take place on Saturday, May 6th from 1:00 to 4:00 PM. Join fellow craft beer aficionados in the heart of Vista Village to celebrate what sets San Diego beer apart from the rest - both its breweries and its enthusiasts, of course. You'll have the opportunity to sample over 100 beers from over 50 of our county's award-winning breweries, all while grooving to live musical performances and enjoying delicious eats from local food trucks. Proceeds from the event will benefit the San Diego Brewers Guild, a nonprofit whose mission is to promote awareness and increase the visibility of fresh, locally brewed beer through education and participation in community events.
Be sure to check back as we announce bands and breweries and for more #SDBeer updates follow us on Instagram @sdbrewers.
The Flower Fields
Mar 1 - May 14, 2017
For more than sixty years, Mother Nature has transformed the rolling hills of North San Diego County into one of the most spectacular and coordinated displays of natural color and beauty anywhere in the world. The nearly fifty acres of Giant Tecolote Ranunculus flowers that make up the Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch in Carlsbad, California, are in bloom for approximately six to eight weeks each year - from early March through early May - literally bringing the famous fields back to life. This annual burst of color, which has become part of the area’s local heritage, also is one of nature’s official ways of announcing the arrival of spring here in Southern California.
