Hoist a Stein for Brain Cancer Research at BraveCort Brew Fest 10/10

Sep 28

BCBF_FBtimeline_470x470_holdyourbeer7_sizedHave you ever wanted to try your hand at a Masskrugstemmen—a beer stein-holding competition? Here’s your chance, and it’s for a great cause! Guests, beer fans, and party-goers all have the opportunity to sample the region’s best brews and food, try their hand at a beer stein-holding competition, and dance the night away at BraveCort Foundation’s second annual Brew Fest & Masskrugstemmen on October 10 in La Jolla.

The BraveCort Brew Fest is taking over the La Jolla Art & Wine Festival Wine & Beer Garden location for an event-packed evening benefiting pediatric brain cancer research in San Diego. Did you know that every day 13 children in the U.S. are diagnosed with a brain tumor? The BraveCort Foundation, in partnership with Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure, will donate all proceeds from the event to pediatric brain cancer research within the San Diego region.

San Diego-based URBN St. Brewing Co. will produce a specialty BraveCort Brew to honor BraveCort founders Brian and Andrea’s son, Cort, who passed from a rare form of brain cancer. This year’s ceremonious brew will be a BraveCort Imperial Stout 11.1%.

Guests can also expect to taste unlimited craft breweries from local favorites, including:

  • Ballast Point Brewing Co.
  • Bay City Brewing
  • Coronado Brewing Co.
  • Fat Cat Beer Co.
  • La Jolla Brewing Co.
  • New English Brewery Co.
  • Rock Bottom Brewery
  • Saint Archer Brewing Co.
  • Stone Brewing Co.
  • URBN St. Brewing Co.

General admission is $40, and includes unlimited tastings, food and live entertainment. To purchase tickets please visit!tickets/mainPage.
