2016 Burbank, CA Beerfest & Street Fair
Are you passionate about craft beer? Do you dream of hop-blasted IPAs, crisp lagers, heavyweight stouts, fiendish Belgian-style ales, and everything in between? If so, it’s time to crack out those calendars and reserve yourself a guestroom or suite at the Hotel Amarano for an autumn Burbank festival that’ll be right up your alley!
The 2nd annual Burbank Beerfest and Street Fair hits downtown Burbank on Saturday, October 15, and it’s a sudsy soiree not to be missed. The Street Fair part of the proceedings, which is completely free to attend, runs from noon to 7:30PM, featuring live music and various vendors. Within that window, meanwhile, the Beerfest consists of two different sessions of all-out craft-beer appreciation: from noon to 3PM and from 4 to 7PM.
A Burbank Bounty of Craft Beer
Taking center stage during those three-hour sessions? How about more than 85 different craft beers from the local area and the Golden State at large (a genuine global hub of microbrewing), plus fine breweries much farther afield? Whatever your palate—and maybe you’re pretty much “come one, come all” in terms of beer—you’ll find more than a few brews to rock your world.
Your $45 Beerfest ticket arms you with a tasting glass, your trusty vessel for sampling 3-oz. quaffs of diverse beers. Discuss the finer points of each brew—color, mouthfeel, etc.—with your fellow imbibers, or simply drift happily through a universe of flavors, marveling all the while at the dedication and creativity of some of the world’s most talented craft brewers.
The Burbank Beerfest raises money for two worthy organizations: the Downtown Burbank Partnership, a non-profit supporting the neighborhood’s economic and cultural vitality, and the Gen Giammanco Foundation, which provides financial assistance to deserving student athletes and school athletic programs.
Bring the Whole Gang
The Burbank Beerfest and Street Fair isn’t simply a super-convenient and super-fun way to explore the big, beautiful world of 21st-century craft beer. It’s also a great excuse to get out and enjoy the gorgeous October weather in gorgeous downtown Burbank. Even if some in your party aren’t beer connoisseurs—or you’ve wisely enlisted a designated driver to accompany you to the event—the Street Fair (which, to repeat, is free to enter) will keep them happy and entertained while you roll up your sleeves and do some serious microbrew homework.
You won’t find more convenient luxury accommodations for the Burbank Beerfest and Street Fair than the Hotel Amarano. We’d be overjoyed to host you for one heck of a beer-lover’s field trip!
