Raise your glass and say "cheers!" Strangebrew Beerfest is back for another round on Saturday, Nov. 10 at 6 p.m. at the Eureka Theater ($35).
The annual festival, now in its 11th year, is a fundraiser for the ongoing restoration of the historic Eureka Theater. So what makes it strange? Here's the hops: Local breweries and cider makers are tasked with creating wild, wacky drinks all vying for awards and glory. This year, Humboldt Cider Co., Mad River Brewing Co., Six Rivers Brewery, Eel River Brewery, Redwood Curtain Brewery, The Booth, Founders and the Humboldt Homebrewers will challenge your wild side with unusual offerings. But don't fear the beers. This is the most fun you've had trying something new since, well, Strangebrew 10.
The Point's Classic Cover Contest will keep things rocking and sloshing all night. The station celebrates its 12th anniversary this year so wish the team a happy birthday. And when the time comes to steady yourself, step outside the theater for real-deal barbecue served up by Southside Mike's, along with great eats from Humboldt Hot Dogs. Be sure to line up a designated driver, dial up a car service or book a room at the Eureka Inn (within stumbling distance of the theater).
Grab a fistful of pretzels, your pals and your sea legs, and come out to the theater for a night of fermented fun. It's going down.
