Bay Area Breweries Launch Chocolate & Beer Festival Today at Craneway Pavilion

The Craneway Pavilion—at historic Ford Point in Richmond , CA—will host the 3rd Annual Chocolate & Beer Festival on Saturday, February 11 from 2-6PM . Spotlighting Bay Area confectioners and brew masters, the event will feature gourmet treats, artisan beers and live music throughout the afternoon. The festival benefits the Children’s Learning Center (CLC, ) in Alameda, CA.

CLC, a 501(c)(3) and 509(a)(2) charity, provides a comprehensive alternative educational program for children who, because of intense behavioral, social, emotional and educational challenges, are temporarily unable to succeed in the public school system. By developing a positive attitude toward learning, developing and strengthening self-esteem, teaching them essential academic and social skills, and successfully returning them to the public schools, CLC strives to enable them to reach their full potential in society.

Entry to the Chocolate and Beer Festival is $30 in advance of the event, and $40 at the door. Admission includes entry and four chocolate/four beer tickets. Additional tasting tickets (attendees must be 21+ to enjoy Festival brews) will be available on-site. People traveling to the Festival via BART can board a free shuttle at the Richmond station for transport to the Craneway.

Chocolatiers participating this year are Coco Delice, Galaxy Desserts, Bittersweet Cafe, Jade, Madecasse, Theo, Alter Eco and Anything Chocolate 4U. The brewers are Drakes Brewing, Anchor Steam, Moylan’s Brewing Company, Lost Coast, Trumer, Marin Brewing Company, Triple Rock, Linden Street and Elevation 66. Musical performances will include The Emperor’s Jazz, Beam and 21st Century.

Located at 1414 Harbour Way South in the Marina district of Richmond, Craneway Pavilion is a world-class and sustainably designed 45,000 square-foot event, concert and production facility located on 25 waterfront acres. It offers awe-inspiring panoramic views of the waterfront, the San Francisco skyline and surrounding environs. As state-of-the-art as it is historic, Craneway is part of the award-winning, iconic Ford Assembly Building, designed in 1932 by legendary industrial architect Albert Kahn ; an adjoining 20,000 square-foot open-air patio seamlessly blends indoor and outdoor spaces. Craneway’s atmosphere and amenities set the stage for special occasions, meetings and cultural events—of every size and every stripe—as unforgettable as San Francisco itself.
