Put your toes in the sand with a drink in your hand at the only local beer festival on the beach… And with the people who started the infamous Over The Line sport (seriously, “over-the-line” is a registered trademark of the Old Mission Beach Athletic Club).

The organization will host its first-ever Craft Beer Festival on Saturday, May 20th in conjunction with the first rounds of OTL at Mariner’s Point on May 20-21—because nothing gets you warmed up for bat like a cold one!
Players are invited to bring their bats, balls and most creative team names to the tournament, while spectators watch the games and enjoy local craft brews, cocktails, and bites for a cause.
On Saturday, May 20th, from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., sip craft beer from the top breweries, including many of San Diego’s own, and enjoy fare from local food trucks.
