    Padres Hall of Famer Trevor Hoffman Finds his Dream Team
    Sierra Nevada
    The deadline for the 2010 Sierra Nevada Beer Camp is Friday, July 9.

    Your job: Decide to get out of town and fast. Our job: Help you find where you're headed. This week, Worth the Drive takes us to...

    Beer Camp:California beer company Sierra Nevada is holding a contest to find the participants for 2010 camp. Make that camps.

    Dates: There are two sessions: September 1-2 and September 2-3.

    Location: Sierra Nevada HQ in Chico.

    Deal: In short, tell Sierra Nevada, via video, why you deserve to learn the art of brewmastery. There are entries already up on the site that are impressive. There's a look at one man's homebrewery; other images show fans out and about with their favorite brews. Get creative in the singing of your suds.

    Camp culture: You'll learn the what-fors of fermenting and hops and body. You'll see the innerworkings of Sierra-Nevada-dom. You'll get to make your own foamy concoction with co-campers, and you'll get to name your beer, too, along with your co-campers.

    Contest deadline: Friday, July 9
