Last October, The Fillmore held the first of its seasonal beer festivals that it is dubbing “Craft Sessions.” The “Summer Sessional” version of the festival will be held from 5-9 p.m. on Saturday, July 11, promising a mix of local and national craft breweries and an old school hip hop playlist.
Local food trucks will be parked out back as well, selling a variety of dishes. As for the beer, expect homegrown favorites like NoDa, Birdsong, Sycamore, Unknown, Wicked Weed and Fonta Flora, plus larger brands like Stone Brewing, Founders Brewing, Bell’s Brewery and Lagunitas. There will be a few one-offs as well, such as Unknown Brewing’s Opening Act IPA and Birdsong Brewing’s cask of Higher Ground IPA with jalapeños in it. I’ll have more on some of these special beers next week, but all told there will be 40 breweries in attendance (you can see the full list on the Facebook event page).
Tickets for the event can be purchased at the box office or at Salud Beer Shop for $35 (or $40 at the door). They can also be purchased online, where a service fee and tax brings them to $41.98 each.
