Taste of Brews (Riverside)

Taste of Brews marks its triumphant return to Riverside’s White Park for the 6th Annual Taste of Brews Inland Empire Saturday, May 20, 2017 from noon to 4pm.


The IE’s premier tasting festival features unlimited samples of premium craft beers and hard ciders.Tickets are on-sale with proceeds benefiting Ocean Education Outreach and Make-A-Wish OC &IE, both 501(C)(3) non-profits.


Taste of Brews IE features more than three dozen craft breweries and hard ciders ranging from hometown favorites to regional standouts from San Diego, Orange County and Los Angeles. Participants include Sons of Liberty, Wicks, Black Market, Route 30, Heroes, 101 Cider House, Ballast Point, I & I, Packinghouse, Guinness, Sierra Nevada, The Mason Jar, 3 Iron and many more. A variety of food and snacks will be available for purchase. All attendees will be treated to live musical entertainment by the IE’s own Tomcats band.


One of the unique features of Taste of Brews IE is the participation of a number of smaller,micro-breweries that are not yet bottling or canning, nor distributing their offerings to retailers,”said event director Amanda Flores. “For craft beer aficionados, that’s what ‘tasting’ events are truly about, being among the first to discover an amazing style or flavor.”


Flores added, “We are very excited to return to White Park and showcase the depth and breadth of local craft breweries and cideries. Riverside is the perfect location to stage Taste of Brews and call attention to the passion and energy that craft beer is generating in the region.”

Riverside’s White Park is located at 3901 Market St. Close to downtown Riverside and the historic Mission Inn.

Taste of Brews ticket prices begin at $30 for 3 hour tasting tickets (1pm to 4pm) and $40 for 4 hour tasting tickets (noon to 4pm). Tickets include unlimited 4oz tastes, live entertainment and access to meals for purchase. All attendees must be age 21 and ID’s will be checked.
