Crew and beer come together at the Crew Classic

Crew and beer come together at the Crew Classic

Peanut butter and jelly, burgers and fries, chips and dip…good things come in pairs. For most people, sports and beer are an equally classic combination. Throw in the sparkling San Diego coastline, and you’ve got a recipe for a great afternoon.

Fortunately for anyone visiting on March 31 or April 1, the San Diego Crew Classic is offering just that. The San Diego Brew & Crew party takes place from 12:00 – 3:00 pm on both Saturday and Sunday, featuring live music, fantastic views of beautiful Mission Bay, food trucks and, of course, San Diego craft beers. Your $40 admission ticket means you not only get to enjoy a live performance from Everest, the indie darlings once invited to open for Neil Young, attendees can sample libations from iconic San Diego brewers including Karl Strauss Brewing Company, Stone Brewing Co., Green Flash Brewing Company, Hess Brewing Company, Lightning Brewery, Julian Hard Cider and more.

While you are enjoying your beer, don’t forget to cheer on the more than 4,000 collegiate competitors rowing for victory. And maybe after the race, they just may join you for a beer. After all, it’s good for you!

So tell us in the comments below, what is your favorite beach drink/libation?

About Candice

Foodie, craft beer nerd, shopaholic, music geek, photographer and contemporary art fan could all be used to describe me. I’m a big proponent of highlighting San Diego’s hidden gems and local businesses and breaking stereotypes about our city. We’re more than just sunshine and beaches (though those are nice, too!). What would you do on your ideal San Diego Day? Eating and shopping around my favorite neighborhoods: Golden Hill, South Park, North Park, Little Italy and Hillcrest. Then popping into one of our great art museums and capping off the night with some live music and a a local beer at The Casbah. What is your favorite San Diego outdoor activity? Does shopping count as an outdoor activity? Or checking out the public art around town, like at Chicano Park? I do love visiting the La Jolla tide pools in the summer and ice skating at the outdoor rinks that go up each winter. Do you prefer burgers and beer or linguine and red wine? Let's get one thing straight here: San Diego craft beer goes with everything, not just burgers. Though it is really good with a burger. Latest music purchases for my iPod player are… I’m lucky to be married to a music journalist, so advance copies of the newest albums are constantly available to me for free. But I can’t seem to stop playing the new album by CHVRCHES, and San Diego band Rocket from the Crypt have been on repeat a lot lately.
