Craft Beer Week kicks off every year with the Rooted in Nature Craft Beer Festival! Stop by to explore an array of rich artisanal craft brews, each one inspired by the connection their ingredients have to the earth and nature. Attendees can enjoy amazing guest breweries, unlimited pours, beer games, live music, food trucks, a silent auction, fun family park, vendors, artists, and more! The festival’s proceeds benefit the Santa Rosa Plateau Nature Education Foundation, and the event is a fantastic way to support the local community while enjoying some delicious food, brews and company.
Two of our favorite things come together during the Brew Masters Golf Tournament: beer and golf! It doesn’t get much better than practicing your swing while sampling a smorgasbord of local brews. You don’t have to be an expert golfer to participate— this event is all about having fun, making new connections, and tasting the freshest flavors in the valley. The Brew Masters Golf Tournament acts as the finale to Craft Beer Week every year, a festive sendoff with plenty of action.
