The Ventura Surf ‘n’ Suds Beer Festival on Saturday, May 20th, at San Buenaventura State Beach will be bigger than ever! Over 50 craft breweries, ciders and wine! Live entertainment by Synrgy Energy, Crosscut 805 Band and DJ Hecktik!

The “Beer Festival with a Surf Twist” is a favorite among craft beer lovers and those just getting their feet wet with craft beer! Plenty of food trucks, sunshine, restrooms and great vendors make Surf ‘n’ Suds a guest favorite!

Benefiting the Young and Brave Foundation this year, Surf ‘n’ Suds Beer Festival continues to rise in the ranks of beer festivals in California. “The biggest part of what we do is build community. Our foundation has global impact but that is a direct result of a community’s grass-root effort to support their individual families. Events like Surf ‘n’ Suds Beer Festival are huge part of what we do, the more people that know about who we are the more families we can help. We’re dedicated to making sure not one family fights alone, #LOVEbeatscancer,” said Matt Coulter, co-founder and executive director for The Young and Brave Foundation.

“Having The Young and Brave Foundation participate and supported by a local event like Surf ‘n’ Suds Beer Festivals is incredible. It takes a village to beat this disease, we’re so thankful for all the love and support,” added Nathaniel Curran, Co-Founder of The Young and Brave Foundation.

Local shapers, select vendors, and a great musical lineup add to the enjoyment of Surf ‘n’ Suds! Along with the high number of craft breweries on site, and an event that allows guest to have conversations with the breweries without worrying about large lines behind them, separate Surf ‘n’ Suds from other festivals.


Getting to Surf ‘n’ Suds safely is a top priority for them. Their transportation options include Jump on the Brew Bus pickups from Goleta, Santa Barbara, Carpinteria, Oxnard and Camarillo (www.surfbeerfest.com/how-to- get-here)! You can also hop on the Downtown Trolley, park in our free bicycle valet, or walk to our event! If you come up on Amtrak, we will have a shuttle ready for the 11:09 a.m. Amtrak drop off. If you come earlier, take a stroll down the beach to the event!
