Do You Even Beer Cup, Bro?

All San Diegans have grown to love and respect PB’s Beachfest – after 20 years of live music, delicious beer and food, surfing competitions and more, it epitomizes everything we live in San Diego for!

Yet we are equally excited about the recently added Beer Cup, which kicks the festival off a whole day early (thank you)!

Going down Friday, October 6th, the 2nd Annual Beachfest Beer Cup has become our hood’s favorite beer tasting competition, ever!

This exclusive tasting competition pulls out the finest of the fine from breweries like Karl Strauss Brewing Co., Mike Hess Brewery, Belching Beaver Brewery, Coronado Brewing Co., and more.

There will be music and food available for purchase, and you can catch a sneak peak at the San Diego Craft Beer Garden for Saturday’s festival on October 7th.


…You should probably come participate – you know, for the good of the breweries, right!?

How to do so? Snag your tickets here, and show up at the PB Shore Club for a night of breezy brewy vibes from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Tickets include beer tasters at all participating breweries and a chance to vote for the People’s Choice Award.

  • Amplified Ale Works
  • Abnormal Beer Co.
  • Karl Strauss Brewing Co.
  • Mike Hess Brewery
  • Belching Beaver Brewery
