Last night the team met at 19 Handles, a pub in Arden Arcade (formerly known as the Kilt Pub). This was the first official meeting of the 2016 West Coast Invitational planning committee.
There is a lot that goes into putting together any event, whether it is a one day professional conference or a multi-day Blues festival or, and afternoon of craft beer tasting.
Over the year's I've been blessed with volunteers and associates that did an amazing job helping to build the region's best brewer festivals including the world famous West Coast Brew Fest.
After 15 years of the WCBF, it was time for an evolution. We marked that evolution with the first annual West Coast Invitational.
It is a truly exciting time in the world of Craft Brew. The Sacramento region alone has 40 breweries with new ones starting all the time including the newest edition, Sactown Union Brewery.
We plan on bringing some incredible West Coast Brews to the WCI for you to savor. Stay tuned.
