Peter B’s Brewpub, a Monterey, Calif.-based craft brewery, hosted its 3rd Annual Monterey Beer Garden. The event took place Sept. 28 at Custom House Plaza. Beer aficionados and foodies enjoyed an afternoon of unlimited beer tasting from craft breweries in the area and a barbeque lunch prepared by Portola Hotel & Spa’s executive chef, Jason Giles.
This year’s participating breweries included Peter B’s Brewpub as well as Stone Brewing Co., Escondido, Calif.; Lagunitas Brewing Co., Petaluma, Calif.; Boulder Creek Brewing Co., Boulder Creek, Calif.; Seabright Brewery, Santa Cruz, Calif.; Drake’s Brewing, San Leandro, Calif.; Uncommon Brewers, Santa Cruz, Calif.; Hermitage Brewery, San Jose, Calif.; and many more. Guests socialized with the local brewers pouring their respective brews and watched a live performance by Rosewood and Rust, an acoustic duo featuring John Sherry and Lara Price, as well as listened to a live broadcast by 102.1 KRML.
Proceeds from the 3rd Annual Monterey Beer Garden benefited Save Our Shores, a nonprofit marine conservation organization that has protected and promoted the ecological integrity of the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary for the last 30 years.
