The Legendary Boonville Beer Festival is upon us once again. Saturday, May 3rd is the day when the population of Boonville increases by about 1 million percent, as beer lovers descend on the tiny town to participate in the 18th Boonville Beer Festival, hosted by Anderson Valley Brewing Company. Once again, over 80 breweries will be pouring at the fest, with representation from local, Northern California breweries as well as a good amount of out-of-market breweries. Advance tickets are $40 (tickets are $55 at the door) and include unlimited samples of delicious beer. If you’re interested in camping, get there early, as the camp ground fills up pretty quickly.
This is a beer fest that everyone should attend at least once in their life, and camping is a necessity (bonus points for being able to attend the legendary Brewer’s Camp). If you’ve never been, there is no better time than the present. But bring some sunscreen and water; looks like it’ll be a hot one in Boonville this weekend.
Ticket information and a line-up of the breweries attending can be found here.
