Art of Beer Invitational at McClellan Conference Center
Friday, January 25, 10am, McClellan Conference Center, $60-$80
What is art? Some would argue that it’s anything that makes you feel something—which puts beer solidly in the art category. That’s good news for the Art of Beer Invitational happening this weekend, an event spotlighting the many breweries of the state and country. A regular ticket grants you access to unlimited 4-ounce pours, while the VIP ticket grants early access at 5:30 p.m. and puts you on a whole other plane of beer. There’s not just beverages, though: You can see some curated artwork and participate in an auction. You can nosh on food tastings paired with your beverages of choice, or just go as a designated driver and mingle with brewers. 5411 Luce Avenue, artofbeerinvitational.com.
