Surf ‘n’ Suds Beer Fest

The Surf ‘n’ Suds Beer Fest is a beer festival put on by Trek Bikes of Ventura is an even you don’t want to miss. Although you’ve already missed the one in Ventura, you have a chance to attend the event come August 15th, 2015 if you get your tickets now. Trust me, you won’t want to miss it. I know, because I was at the one in Ventura and it was AWESOME.

Thanks to my friend Andres over at DEEP Surf Mag, I was able to get a VIP ticket at a discounted rate, so I was in a lot earlier than everyone else. With over 60 craft breweries and wineries, surfboard shapers and food trucks, the VIP ticket price is worth it because there’s so much to see!

When you walk in you get your wristband, your tasting glass, a list of the breweries and a little golf pencil so you can mark off the ones you’ve tried, and remember the ones you loved! I thought this was probably the coolest part, because I’ve been to other beer fests and they haven’t done that!

But beyond the adorable list, you’ll do a whole lot of fun stuff like….

1. Meet New Friends

Mostly the ones that work there if you’re going in as “media” like I was.

2. Catch up with old Pals

Randomly run into your boyfriend’s sister and have an awesome time sharing beers!

3. Check out Awesome Surf Equipment You Didn’t Know Existed

From Westside Boards. Strongly considering buying one of these.

4. Play Beer Pong

With a volleyball and giant red trashcans. Or lurk in the back like me and take pictures instead of playing.

5. Have Random People Approach You

And ask you to take a photo of them, then run off and don’t give you any contact info so you can share it with them.

6. Order Messy Ribs

And take a terrible picture of them because you’re already buzzing it from all of those IPA samples you had.

7. Be Invited Behind the Table

…of The Bloody Cure because you’re trying to eat previously mentioned ribs and getting the BBQ sauce all over your shirt because you can’t hold a camera, a beer, and eat ribs while standing…while buzzed. And because they feel bad that you’re struggling so hard.

8. Take Inappropriate Pictures

And laugh really hard at the fact that you put the Lagunitas Brewing Company’s red splatter on your leg as if Aunt Flow came into town unexpectedly. Yeah, so hilarious.

9. Rep the Brewery from Your City

And take some cutesy pics while you’re at it. Angel City Brewery in Downtown LA is where it’s at!
