Sacramento Brew Bike is launching Saturday, May 17. Riders will be able to book individual seats or the entire bike contraption for two-hour excursions to local breweries. Read an interview with the Chris Ferren-Cirino who owns the vehicle with his wife Sarah, both UC Davis alums. Chris saw a brew bike in Portland, Oregon, and was inspired to bring the idea to Sacramento.

Also for beer lovers, the West Coast Brew Fest is taking place Saturday from 1-5 p.m. in Miller’s Park along the Sacramento River. More than 60 breweries will be represented at the annual event.
