More of a beer person than a wine person? Or not enough time to leave LA for Santa Ynez for this weekend’s Celebration of Harvest? Maybe BAM in Santa Monica is more your style.
Because truly even Wine Predators can not live on wine alone!
On Saturday, October 10, from 1-5PM the Beer, Art, & Music Festival or BAM Fest offers 100 brews from more than 40 local and national breweries alongside art from Indonesia, Malaysia, Argentina, Spain, Denmark, and Taiwan with music from local musicians and food from six food trucks to benefit 18th Street Arts Center, a non-profit artist residency center. Tickets are on sale now; at the door they are $50.
During the event, you might want to check out a Crash course in:
1:30pm – History of a Beer Style: IPA, Curator’s Lounge, Blue Bldg
Tomm Carroll and Carl Townshed
2:30pm – How to Properly Taste and Judge a Beer, Curator’s Lounge, Blue Bldg
Tomm Carroll, Glenn Payne and Carl Townshed
3:30pm Brilliant Dilletantes Exhibition Walk-through, Main Gallery
Goethe Institut Media Librarian Stefan Kloo covering context, history, and impact of 1980s German subcultures on broader German society.
If I wasn’t already lined up for Celebration of Harvest in Santa Ynez, followed by Neil Young at the Santa Barbara Bowl, I bet we’d be headed for Samo where it will be nice and cool on this hot fall weekend!
