Bakersfield's craft beer scene continues to grow but if you're not already in the know where do you go? The Active 20-30 Club has just the adventure for you with its “Meet Your Brewer” event on Feb. 22.
Eight local breweries — Lengthwise Brewing, Great Change, Dionysus, Crusader, Temblor, Kern River Brewing, Westlane Brewing and brand-new 2nd Phase — will take part in the annual gathering at Lengthwise's location at 7700 District Blvd.
Meet and chat with the creative folks behind your favorite local beers while sampling the brews before dinner provided by Lengthwise. "Meet Your Brewer" serves as a prelude to the upcoming Country & Craft Beer Festival, which returns April 4 to the Central Park at Mill Creek.
The Active 20-30 Club, which hosts both events, donates all proceeds raised to local children’s charities, last year donating $52,000.
Running from 6 to 9 p.m. Feb. 22, the event includes tastings, dinner and music by Freestyle Entertainment.
Tickets are $25, available at eventbrite.com.
