    Title says it all!

    There's too much going on to make event listing for everything, but fortunately there's a helpful website to aid in your planning:


    Haven't made firm plans yet but I've always had a good time at the Toronado's events. City Beer Store, Speakeasy, Beer Rev as well. Festivals tend to be too chaotic for my operating system, and dinners/pairings too meat-centric. I love 'meet-the-brewer' nights and there's even a trivia night which looks promising. Who knows, I might run into some of ya'll...

    So all that said, those who are going, those who are in town (or coming in from out of town), what are you hoping to catch?

    I'm in town. Most interested in 'Tion night, though I may be out of town (grumble grumble), DIPA Fest, Kern night at Gourmet Haus, and the epic Sierra night at Beer Rev. Maybe Midnight Sun at City Beer, also.

    I'd check Toronado's web page. if it hasn't been updated yet, it likely will be soon.

    Yeah, not updated yet. All they have up is a Lagunitas/New Belgium night on the 14th and the barleywine fest.

    'Tion night last year at Toronado, while packed, was the highlight of my beer week. Just got to figure out how to be at Toronado for that and City Beer Store for Alpine at the same time.

    Between those two and the 20 tap bruery takeover at harry's, tough decisions.

    Bistro Double IPA Fest and the Toronado BW Fest. Been a tradition and ain't no stopping me now. Tough during the week for me to make something unless it's REALLY local. Bring it!

    They haven't announced any yet, but they've alluded to at least something. It's clear that opening the Clement store has occupied a whole lot of attention of late.
