Davis BeerFest 2013

Man, I know it’s a bummer that they won’t even have any Coors, Bud or PBR. But there’s gonna be more than 100 other legit brews from more than 40 breweries, plus some good grub (like classy hotdogs and stuff) and performances by reggae-rock groups Massive Delicious and Zuhg, and surf rockers Lava Pups. It’s gonna be at Sudwerk Restaurant & Brewery at 2001 Second Street in Davis from 2 to 5 p.m. on Saturday, June 1. Tickets cost $38 in advance, $45 at the door and $10 for designated drivers.
