HB Beer Festival Brings the Best for Craft Beer Enthusiasts

The Huntington Beach Beer Festival took place at the Meadowlark Golf Club this weekend where hundreds of locals gathered for some tasty brew in support of Wrech Check Charities. This event is held in collaboration of Rockstar Beer Productions and many breweries, including regional and local, to raise funds for a non-profit that conducts research and promotes family empowerment for people with rett sydrome.

Vendors were set up for VIP guests who had a one-hour early access into the festival to start their beer-tasting. Incase anyone got hungry, delicious food was available for purchase from food trucks including Chinese Gourmet, Fresh Seafood, Baby’s Burgers, Konestruction and HomeRun Sliders. Free beer, live music and food was all anyone who is a beer lover could ask for.

After 7 p.m. it seemed like the lines just got longer and longer for anyone to grab a taste of their favorite IPA. A mix of older and younger crowds came walking downhill ready for some beer and anyone who wasn’t wearing a pretzel necklace was apparently missing out on the trend.IMG_0772

 

Live music was provided by Alien Ant Farm, Eyes Set To Kill and Red Not Chili Peppers. Red Not Chili Peppers not only had the sound of the original band stars but had the crowd going wild for hit songs including “Under The Bridge.” Stone IPA had their beer lovers indulge in some of their favorites from the highest ABV and malty selection the thunderstruck IPA to Delicious IPA and one of my favorites Arrogant Bastard.

 

The Coronado Brewing company had two selections and one of them being their Idiot IPA, their version of a malty and slight hop of an Indian Pale Ale. Left Coast Brewery from San Clemente brought their version of IPA and most commonly known, Trestles IPA. Golden Road Brewery and Reel Brew Company from Los Angeles were among the breweries offering their prime selections of beers.

Out of state breweries were also among the choices including Epic Brewing Co., Portland Cider Co. and Ninkasi Brewing Company.
