From creative mind that brought you 100 Eats 100 Days and Pigout, Bobby Navarro, has teamed up with some great restaurants, awesome breweries, and talented artists to bring to Costa Mesa the world’s first one day beer garden!

“The Art of Beer” made possible by TravelCostaMesa

WHO: Up to 25 of the most celebrated Breweries, up to 15 of beer-friendly eateries, and artists galore.

WHAT: Beer, Art, Food, and Music Festival

WHEN: Saturday, June 8, 2013 3-7pm

WHERE: TeWinkle Park in Costa Mesa. Parking in Lot G at OC Fair & Event Center

DETAILS:

Saturday, June 8th, there is sure to be music in the air, and it won’t stop there.  Bobby Navarro of 100eats.com is brewing up an innovative event masterpiece in conjunction with Evan Price of Noble Ale Works and Leonard Chan of The Iron Press.  This creation will challenge your perception on how to enjoy craft beer in an inspiring, artistic environment.

The best breweries from the West Coast will be paired with some of Orange County’s best local restaurants – purposefully paired to heighten your experience. While you wash down your savory dish with a cold brew, take in the sights and sounds of one of Orange County’s most beautiful recreation areas, TeWinkle Park in Costa Mesa.  Breweries will be represented throughout the park alongside life-size art installations, eye-capturing floral displays, live art, music and more.

FOR ONE, ALL-INCLUSIVE TICKET PRICE, you have the opportunity to try food and drink to your heart’s desire – and unlike some events, PARKING IS INCLUDED.  To upgrade your experience, choose a VIP ticket, a luxurious lounging experience including exclusive bottled beer samplings and a service professional to replenish your glass with more delicious bottled offerings.  Bring a few extra dollars! There are opportunities to purchase some of the one-of-a-kind art pieces and floral décor that will be displayed, with the proceeds supporting Inspire Artistic Minds

Inspire Artistic Minds (IAM) is a federally recognized 501(c)3 nonprofit, dedicated to furthering the education of culinary and visual artists, kids and adults alike.  Your support helps strengthen education in small business establishments, supports the local economy and creates a cultural influx by giving passionate individuals the opportunity to be inspired through experience.
