Starting off is the 5th Annual International Craft Beer Festival – a beer aficionado’s dream that boasts more than 70 types of beer from 15 breweries in Mexico and around the world. Participating breweries include the famous and soon-to-be-famous: San Diego’s own Stone Brewing Company, Port Brewing Company, Tsingtao, Paulaner, Bear Republic, Carlsberg, Baja Brewing Company, and Cerveceria Tijuana (Tijuana’s own, award-winning micro-brewery). This three-day event (lasting Friday July 17 through Sunday, July 19) will be held at the Tijuana Caliente Casino and Race Track – not only giving beer lovers a chance to sample brews, but also bet on live greyhound races. Attendees to the 5th Annual International Craft Beer Festival will also be entertained with live rock music and local singers, while sampling a variety of food from some of Tijuana’s finents restaurants. The Festival hours are Friday from 7:00pm to 1:00am, Saturday from 12:00pm to 12:00am (noon to midnight), and Sunday from 12:00pm to 5:00pm. Tickets are $5 ($60 pesos) per person, and include a threesome of your choice of beers.
