Elk Grove Brewfest Returns After 2-Year Hiatus
Sacramento based event promoter, “Beers In Sac,” is returning to the festival scene after a two-year halt in public gatherings due to Covid-19 restrictions with “Elk Grove Brewfest,” at Elk Grove Park located at 9950 Elk Grove-Florin Rd on Friday April 15.
In partnership with The City of Elk Grove, Beers In Sac will also join forces with City of Refuge Sacramento, a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering the lives of those living in marginalized communities. Moreover, proceeds will assist COR in offering services that help with homelessness; at-risk youth; domestic violence; human trafficking and workforce development.
“We are proud to partner with an amazing local non-profit as the beneficiary,” Misty Alafranji, Co-Owner of Beers In Sac said, “These types of donations help keep City of Refuge programs alive and much needed housing needs supported.”
“They have a true heart for people and for authentic transformation, and provide the tools and programs to help make that transformation possible.–Misty Alafranji, Co-Owner of Beers In Sac
Since 2016, Beers In Sac has been bringing people together throughout the Sacramento region and beyond through their passion for craft beer. To that end, in the midst of a rapidly growing movement, they saw the value in creating Elk Grove Brewfest.
“The Craft Beer Scene in Elk Grove (and greater Sacramento) was booming in 2016! Beers In Sac wanted to create a local event to celebrate that! What better way to throw a community event than to have it support a great cause, and another way to give back to the community.”-Misty Alafranji, Co-Owner of Beers in Sac
Craft beer enthusiasts and wine aficionados alike will enjoy a bigger and better venue this year. Importantly, the event will showcase over 60+ breweries, cideries and wineries. At the same time, a plethora of some of the region’s best food trucks, pop-up’s, and retail vendors will line the park’s perimeter. Additionally, there will be two stages set up, multiple DJ’s and live performances.
“We’ve added additional vendors; a gorgeous new space in partnership with The City of Elk Grove; more music; a special VIP area and lounge; more sponsors and more activities! This year will be like no other at Elk Grove Brewfest!–-Misty Alafranji, Co-Owner of Beers in Sac
Festival goers can expect a vast lineup of well-known NorCal breweries to be in attendance such as: Sierra Nevada; Federation Brewing; Firestone Walker Brewing Company , Device Brewing Company, and Alaro Craft Brewery to name a few. In addition, Elk Grove’s very own Tilted Mash Brewing; Flatland Brewing Company, Waterman Brewing; Hungry Pecker Brewing Company and the city’s newest addition: Dust Bowl Brewing Company have all been confirmed.
