GSN Alert: Celebrate Cinco De Mayo with Buellton’s Virtual Brew Fest on May 1st

This year, Buellton is bringing their annual Brewfest to the comfort of people’s homes. On May 1st, 2021 Buellton Brew Fest @ Home will be a 3-hour virtual beer festival experience with guided tastings, live music, special segments and giveaways.  

With a Cinco de Mayo theme, attendees will receive a 13-pack alcohol box delivered right to their front doors that includes craft beers, ciders, micheladas, margaritas and more, from 13 different companies. Breweries participating include two of Buellton’s very own, Figueroa Mountain Brewing and Firestone Walker Brewing Co., each sampling products with a Cinco de Mayo twist.  Figueroa Mountain will feature their Mexican Lager, Agua Santa, and Firestone Walker Brewing Co. will feature their 805 Cerveza. Buellton’s own Dorwood Distillery will also include some small batch tequila as well to make your own Margarita! 

Other companies participating are Angel City Brewing, Belching Beaver, Calidad Beer, Cayman Jack Margarita, Cerveceria del Pueblo, SLO Brew, Solvang Brewing, Tio Rodrigo Michelada, Hard Frescos and more. 

On May 1st from 12:30-3:30pm, guests will get to hear from the participating companies as they walk them through each tasting and enjoy music from local bands and DJ Hecktik (a Brew Fest favorite). Guests will receive a link to login and watch the live event.  For those unable to watch live, attendees can enjoy it at their own convenience anytime they’d like after the 1st via a recorded version. The 13-pack is enough to enjoy with 1-2 people, or you can order multiple tickets and have a watch party with roommates or family members. 

Tickets are $70 for CA residents and $80 for out of state residents (includes shipping). The only states the festival is allowed to ship to are:  California, Nevada, Oregon, Arizona, and Washington.  In addition to the samples from the participating vendors, each of the festival boxes will also include a souvenir glass and gift items from the vendors and sponsors.

100% of the proceeds from this event will benefit the Buellton Chamber of Commerce. The Buellton Chamber of Commerce is a non-profit 501c(6) organization, founded in 1956.
