Award-Winning Beers from Sacramento-Area Breweries

Sacramento is a craft beer town, so it comes as no surprise that its local breweries took more than two dozen medals during the California State Fair Commercial Beer Competition. This year, nearly 20 breweries from throughout the greater Sacramento area took awards, edging out thousands of entries in more than 60 categories!

Best of all, more than 30 California breweries will be pouring during Brewfest 2019. The event will be held Saturday, July 20 from 3 – 6 p.m. at the Miller Lite Racetrack Grandstand. Tickets (which include entry to the fair) are $35 in advance, or $45 for VIP tickets, which will get you in an hour earlier!
