The first-ever Long Beach Homebrew Festival put on by We Love Long Beach (We Love LB) will also serve as the nonprofit organization’s first ever fundraiser and draw attention to more than 20 local homebrewers from the greater Long Beach area, ready to gather to share their carefully crafted brews and compete for the votes of attendees this Saturday.
One of the main reasons Beer Belly owner Jimmy Han wanted to open a second location in Long Beach is because of the growing, tight-knit beer-loving community already here, but it’s not just about fitting in. Han plans to contribute to that growth, adding a welcome dimension to 3rd Street and Long Beach Boulevard.
For those looking to take things up a notch in the adult Halloween party category, or for those who want their children to sample more highbrow dental nightmares, Long Beach Creamery will be hosting “Tracee’s Wicked Treats Pop-Up,” dedicated to satisfying that sweet tooth with gobs of gourmet chocolate.
While the live bands from Music Tastes Good blasted their music around downtown Long Beach Saturday night, the taste buds of VIP holders at Padre Restaurant were exploding. They experienced a handful of uniquely created plates by Long Beach’s top chefs and even some international culinary artists in six savory (plus one sweet) courses.
