Event Description:

The SAN DIEGO WINTER BREW FEST moves to the Fleet Science Center February 24th!

Does it get any better than drinking beer on a Saturday evening while sampling from some of the best microbreweries and cider houses in Southern California while listening to live local music? Well, yes, it does! The Fleet Science Center has been secured as the new venue for the 6th Annual San Diego Winter Brew Fest where attendees can sample from over 80 different local craft beers. And, February 24th marks the first day of MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibition. Now you can drink beer, listen to music, eat yummy food and interact with the hands-on exhibits.


About MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibition

This genius exhibit took 5 years to build to perfection. Check out the gadgets and props that were featured on the show. They will not be in a showcase - festival attendees can touch any of them. Check out the live demonstrations and feel free to participate! It’s rumored that cast members from the show will be at the event as well…

A few theories that you can test (while sampling microbrews) include: “Does toast always land butter-side down? What keeps you drier: running in the rain or walking through it? Can you really pull a tablecloth off of a fully set table without disturbing a dish?” (Fleet Science Center, 2018)


The VIP Experience

Attendees can enter the fest an hour before the crowds for just an additional $10 from the GA tickets. A special beer and cheese pairing starts at 6pm and, no lines for beer! VIP tickets are limited to 500 attendees. These tickets include unlimited 2-ounce pours from 6-10pm. Get your tickets fast as VIP always sells out!


General Admission

Take a Lyft to the festival! Although Balboa Park has free lots, you can’t leave your car there past midnight and you are not going to want to have to cut yourself off early with this many great brews. General admission runs from 7-10pm. Sample from over 30 breweries while listening to local favorites the Creepy Creeps. Bread & Cheese catering will be serving up some gourmet grilled cheeses and other foods to help soak up some of the yummy brews.
