Boardwalk Bites & Brews Food Festival

Boardwalk Bites & Brews

Saturday, September 29, 2018

Our newest food festival celebrates everyone's favorite Boardwalk foods paired with the Bay Area's best craft beers!

Local brewers have been challenged to select (or brew up) a beer that best complements a Boardwalk menu item.

With foods ranging from lobster tacos and garlic fries to deep-fried Oreos and chocolate-covered bacon, the intriguing combinations offer a little something for everyone.

Beer Tasting


  • Absolutely no event Passports or Beer Taste Tickets will be issued without a valid 21+ driver's license. Each guest planning to beer taste must be present with ID at the time of redemption or onsite purchase. 
  • IDs WILL BE CHECKED and "21+ tasting wristbands" will be provided at Boardwalk ticket booths.
  • Breweries subject to change.
  • Beer tastes available while supplies last, purchase passport ahead!
  • All beer tastes must be purchased online or at a Boardwalk ticket booth—no sales at the beer tasting booths.
  • Event T-shirts, hats, and other pre-purchased items will be provided at the event.
  • All Passports include a "Best Pairing" ballot to be given to the brewery that paired one of their beers with their specific Boardwalk food the best! The winning brewery will receive $500—so cast your vote wisely!
  • Please don't drink and drive. Use Uber, Lyft, taxi, or contact a sober driver.
