The 8th Annual Pechanga Microbrew & Craft Beer Festival and Chili Cook-off returns to the Pechanga Grand Ballroom on Saturday, June 11th. It’s a benefit for Habitat for Humanity Inland Valley. One of the participating breweries is Los Angeles’ and Orange County’s Golden Road Brewing. Brewmaster Victor Novak taps the keg with a thirst-quenching preview.
In 2011, beer enthusiasts Meg Gill and Tony Yanow founded Golden Road Brewing to bring fresh beer to the local market in the most sustainable way possible. Golden Road is committed to engaging and supporting the growing community of socially-minded beer enthusiasts
Golden Road’s year-round offerings include Point the Way IPA, Golden Road Hefeweizen, Get Up Offa That Brown and Wolf Among Weeds IPA. Along with the core beers, Golden Road brewers are constantly experimenting with the freshest ingredients through a collection of rotating, seasonal and limited-edition brews including the Custom IPA Series, a line-up of diverse, hop-forward IPAs.
VIP tickets (with early access) are $65 and General Admission is $50. Designated Driver tickets are also available.
In addition to dozens of highly regarded craft beers to sample the Pechanga chefs are all in competition to wow the guests with their distinctive chili creations. There will be eight varieties of chili to enjoy and the crowd favorite (by popular vote) wins the trophy for “Best Chili at Pechanga.” You can be sure the highly competitive chefs at Pechanga are “in it to win it.” The defending chili champ from last year, Chef Marlene Moore of the Temptations Food Walk food court at Pechanga, encores to defend her coveted title.
