Did we mention the event will also draw attention to the brewers?
Peter Hoey has become a phenom of collaboration beers in a whirlwind brewing schedule that saw him make beers at nine breweries, eight of them regional. The beers will pay homage to Sacramento Brewing Co., an influential craft brewery from 1994 until it closed in 2009. All nine beers are Sacramento Brewing recipes and will be served from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Saturday, March 5, during Sacramento Beer Week at Rubicon Brewing, 2004 Capitol Ave. Read Blair Anthony Roberts story here.
