When: Sat., April 11, 4-7 p.m. 2015
If you like riding bikes and drinking beer (though please, for safety’s sake, not both at the same time), this Brewfest ought to be right up your alley. Hosted by Sports Basement (2727 Milvia St.), Berkeley’s super-sized sporting goods retailer, the event will feature reps from six Bay Area breweries — Drake’s, 21st Amendment, Lagunitas, Strike Brewing, Anchor Brewing, and E.J. Phair — who will be on hand to pour unlimited samples of their beers for a mere $5 admission fee. All proceeds from tickets will benefit the nonprofit Bike East Bay, as will 10 percent of the proceeds from merchandise purchases made during the event. And to make sure no one has to drink on an empty stomach, the Taste of the World food trucks will be selling their usual array of internationally inspired fare.
