Last Saturday was Heroes Brew Fest, and it was the best beer festival I’ve been to so far this year!
The weather was great, the location was spacious, and there were so many adults in costumes that it was like Halloween in July.
This was my first year attending Heroes Brew Fest, and I know some who attended in previous years were disappointed to see it moved from the downtown center of the Comic Con buzz to a few miles away in Point Loma. But after experiencing the Comic Con crowds for a few days, I welcomed the calmer location.
Besides drinking great craft beer while rubbing elbows with adults dressed like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, there were plenty of other activities to enjoy. There was lawn bowling, cornhole, life-sized Jenga, and an epic DJ playing 90s tunes. I enjoyed the latter quite a bit. He even played the Fresh Prince theme song at one point! But I digress.
My favorite beers of the day were Phantom Carriage’s strawberry Berliner weisse, Mission Brewery’s Hard Root Beer, and Monkey Paw Brewing Company’s Sweet Georgia Brown. I also had some amazing potato tacos from Famoso, one of the many food trucks at the event.
And this post wouldn’t be complete without a picture of me with a minion, right? This guy cracked me up. Next year I’ll definitely be dressing up.
Cheers to a successful day of drinking great beer and people watching, all while supporting the Warrior Foundation – Freedom Station. Heroes Brew Fest is the perfect beer festival to attend during Comic Con weekend to get a break from the crowds while still enjoying some nerdy costumes and quirkiness. I can’t wait until next year!
I received a complimentary ticket to Heroes Brew Fest, but of course, all opinions are my own.
