The Original San Diego Beer Festival Celebrates 25 Years

The original San Diego beer festival is celebrating its 25th year, and beyond its claim as the city’s first brew fest, it also differentiates itself by donating 100% of the proceeds back to charities.

San Diego's Original Beer Fest Celebrates 25 Years

San Diego Festival of Beer is hosted each year by San Diego Professionals Against Cancer  and has donated more than $723,000 directly to cancer-fighting organizations since its inception in 1994.

Benefactors of the proceeds include Rady’s Children Hospital, Cancer Angels, The Seany Foundation, and many others.

Completely volunteer-based, San Diego Festival of Beer will draw an anticipated 1,500 attendees to the city’s Broadway Pier featuring at least 50 breweries pouring 120 varieties of craft beer.
