What is Beer City?

Beer City Festivals allows you to taste the best craft beer from Northern California and beyond. You’ll find great beer, munch on tasty food, and hear great music.

Many Beer City events start with a half marathon/10k/5k. This isn’t always the case, but who doesn’t want to work up a thirst while taking in the sights on a local running trail.

Oh, and we’re a family, furry family event, so click on the specific festival you’re curious about and get all the details.


Where can I find out more about a festival?

Click on the specific festival you’re curious about and all of your questions will be answered.

How can I be involved?

Beer City offers a lot of different ways to be involved before, during, and after a festival. We encourage you to visit our beer partners in their taprooms with the Beer City Passport and our Ambassadors are always showing up in fun places. There’s always something going in on Beer City.

Is there always a running event with a festival?

Not always. There also isn’t always a festival on the day of a running event. We love the craft brewing and the running communities. Sometimes they overlap. Sometimes they don’t.

Do you have a newsletter?

No we don’t. But we post the latest news on instagram and Facebook.


Do you have a question about an event? Maybe you’re a brewer and want be part of a festival. We also love city inquiries on how to host their own Beer City Festival.
