Westfield UTC’s 2nd annual Uncasked event coming up on Saturday, August 22 from 4 to 7 p.m. at Westfield UTC (4545 La Jolla Village Drive). The popular outdoor beer fest sold out last year, and this year’s event is set to be another uniquely San Diego experience, combining Westfield UTC’s beautiful outdoor setting with San Diego’s favorite craft breweries, including Karl Strauss Brewing Company, Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery, Rough Draft Brewing Company, Groundswell Brewing Company, Stone Brewing Company & Mother Earth Brew Co. Guests can try ten local brews while sampling unlimited bites from some of Westfield UTC’s favorite restaurants, including fresh California cuisine from Lemonade, savory grill items from Seasons 52 and comfort food from Tender Greens. To round out the afternoon’s festivities, guests will enjoy live music from Casey Turner and Nathan and Jessie, plus play fun beach games while they sip their suds.
100% percent of the proceeds from Uncasked will benefit the San Diego Brewers Guild, the local nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting awareness and increasing visibility of fresh, locally brewed beer. The SDBG is responsible for maintaining San Diego’s reputation as the “Capital of Craft,” and does this through its core annual events and public education. The proceeds from this tournament will help to sustain these initiatives, including San Diego Beer Week (SDBW), a weeklong celebration of all things San Diego craft beer held annually the first week of November (now in its 6th year), and the Rhythm & Brews Music and Craft Beer Festival, the bookend event to SDBW held annually in north San Diego county in the spring.
The event is expected to sell out again this year, so purchasing tickets in advance is highly recommended. Each $20 ticket includes a branded tasting mug, 10 tickets for pours, unlimited food and beach games. Tickets can be purchased here: https://ticketsauce.com/e/uncasked15.
