Brews and baseball is the name of the game Friday as Petco Park hosts its summer BeerFest ahead of the Padres vs. Diamondbacks match-up in downtown San Diego.
The San Diego Padres BeerFest begins with the first pour at 5 p.m. The crisp, sudsy lineup includes two samples from nearly 20 local and national breweries including Ballast Point Brewing Co. (pouring Calm Before the Storm and Grapfruit Sculpin), Pizza Port (tapping Chronic and Swamis IPA) and Heml’s Brewing Co. (pouring Batten Down Brown and OG Wheat), among many others.
All beers are $5 and must be purchased with “Friar Funds” included in BeerFest ticket packages. A $60 Field Box package includes one Field Box ticket to the ball game and four Friar Funds good for four beers at the fest. A $40 Right Field Lower Reserved package includes one Right Field Lower Reserved ticket to the game and four Friar Funds good for four brews.
If you can’t make it to Friday’s Padres BeerFest, it’s not a complete strike out.
Petco Park will host two more BeerFests in the coming months: one on July 24 and another on Sept. 4. Ticket packages to those events will also include entry into the ballgame and Friar Funds good for four brews at the BeerFest. Score.
