Green Flash Brewing Co is hosting Treasure Chest Beer + Food Fest 2017 – the brewery’s largest and most anticipated rare beer and food-pairing event of the year. This year, the event is moving to Green Flash’s rare beer production facility, Cellar 3 located in Poway and they will add live music as well as a homebrewer competition to the day’s offerings.
For the 7th year in a row, Treasure Chest Fest benefits local breast cancer charity: Susan G Komen San Diego, and all proceeds from ticket sales are donated to the charity. The ‘fest is now a San Diego tradition - an exceptional celebration of craft beer and food including hands-on culinary demos.
This year, the ‘fest will be taking over the entire parking lot, tasting room, and production facility of Cellar 3 in Poway - allowing attendees the opportunity to sample from an exceptional lineup of their rare, specialty, one-off, and barrel aged beers from Green Flash, Cellar 3, and Alpine Beer Company. Green Flash has hand-selected some of their favorite local restaurants to develop (and donate) thoughtful food pairings to go with each beer.
The event also marks the national release of the brewery’s popular Treasure Chest beer –an IPA with passion fruit.
Brewmaster, Erik Jensen and the crew will be on site for an interactive Q & A session, hosted by SD Beer Talk Radio. The popular craft beer podcast will be broadcasting live from the fest. There will be live music this year and a Treasure Chest Homebrew Contest. Yup, you've heard it here. Green Flash hosting their first-ever Treasure Chest Homebrew Contest. The brewery is inviting local homebrewers to enter their best IPA brew, which will be reviewed by an expert panel of judges. The contest winner will get the chance to brew with the Green Flash team on the pilot system, and have their winning IPA served in the Mira Mesa tasting room.
This year’s fest will feature lots of cool-down space (shade, misters, etc) as well as a variety of fun activities and games options including a dunk tank (where you can dunk a brewer), caricature illustrations by Jorge Pacheco Caricature and more.
