Coffee-slash-beer town

In the last few years, craft coffee and beer have exploded in Sacramento and so, fittingly, there’s an event centered around combinations of the two beverages. The fourth Sacramento Coffee Beerfest will feature more than 20 brewers and their best coffee-infused beer from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. on November 10 at the Brickhouse Gallery & Art Complex (2837 36th Street). The mash-up originally stuck to obvious pairings like porters and stouts, said Scott Scoville, co-founder of Beers in Sac, but no longer: Two Rivers Cider Co. and New Glory Craft Brewery have worked coffee into a cider and a saison, respectively. But to prevent a “wrecking” of palettes with a bombardment of coffee flavors, Scoville said food will be available from Masa Guiseria and Cali Love Food Truck, and each brewery will also bring a straight-down-the-middle beer for contrast. Tickets ($30) for this quintessentially Sacramentan drinking event can be purchased at
