DLBA Hosts Beer and Wine Festival Following Red Bull Flugtag
2013-09-19 · By Editor
The Downtown Long Beach Associates (DLBA) tap into the culinary culture of Downtown Long Beach – and a few microbrew kegs — with the first ever Promenade Beer and Wine Festival on Saturday, September 21 from 5-10 p.m. on the Promenade between 1st and 3rd Streets. Scheduled to follow Red Bull’s Flutag, occurring the same day at the Pine Avenue Pier, the Promenade Beer and Wine Festival will welcome local foodies and visitors alike.
The event will celebrate the growth of wine bars and craft beer brewed, sold and savored in Long Beach as well as the diverse culinary options emerging in the city’s core. Nearly twenty local eateries will each be paired with a brewery and a winery or wine bar and offer food and drink pairings ranging from traditional gourmet to edgy and experimental.
Through a partnership with Beachwood BBQ and Brewing, District Wine, and Wine Down Lounge, breweries and wineries from across California are registering to participate in this unique convergence of brewer masters, vintners, and restaurateurs. The event will also feature live music from Paperplanes, Fathers & Suns, California Lions, and Moonsville Collective, as well as painting lessons from Brushstrokes and Beverages and a bike valet.
Pre-sale tickets for the Promenade Beer & Wine Festival are on sale now for $25 and will be available for $30 at the gate. The ticket price includes unlimited 3oz beer & wine tastings, 10 food samplers, and a souvenir tasting glass. Guests must be 21 and over to enter the event.
