Taste of Brews Joins 2011 Long Beach Sea Festival at Lighthouse Park

Taste of Brews™, an upscale tasting experience, is heading to Lighthouse Park in Long Beach on Saturday, August 20, 2011. An official event of the Long Beach SeaFest™, Southern California’s premier beer-tasting festival features dozens of seasonal, craft and micro-brews paired alongside “traditional” libations from top breweries. Several affordable sponsorship and exhibitor options are available. More information, including additional dates/locations and customized tastings, is available at www.tasteofbrews.com.

A refreshing new approach to beer tasting, Taste of Brews pays homage to the passion and excitement that today’s full-flavored craft beers are generating among consumers while providing an exciting platform to introduce new styles. General admission attendees will sample among dozens of brands and savor local cuisine. Premium VIP packages take the tasting experience to a heightened level with demonstrations from legendary brewmasters, private reserves, a lounge area and other upscale amenities.

Taste of Brews infuses each of its events with seasonally-themed atmosphere and complementary entertainment to showcase the latest craft beer offerings. Lighthouse Park’s unique venue near Aquarium of the Pacific and iconic Queen Mary features cool ocean breezes and classic surf music during the dog days of summer. A number of popular brewpubs and restaurants are nearby including Rock Bottom Brewery, Yard House and Tequila Jacks. Lighthouse Park is freeway close to Northwest Orange County and Southwest LA County.

The Long Beach SeaFest presented by The Port of Long Beach is a three-month celebration of the Southern California experience highlighted in a series of beach, ocean and summer-fun events. First staged 50 years ago with a mere handful of events, Sea Festival showcases Long Beach, the Aquatic Capital of America, as a spectacular place to live in or visit and offers Southern California families – and countless thousands of visitors – an opportunity to turn a day at the beach into much more than just a dip in the ocean!

Taste of Brews is professionally produced by the proprietors of the Surf City USA Marathon and Boardfest. A comprehensive outreach campaign will be implemented to drive awareness for the festival and participating brews including a proven database of active So Cal residents, social networking, public relations and traditional advertising.
