Sample Craft Brews and Watch the Horse Races at the California Gold Rush Beer Festival, May 23

May 7, 2015 by Brian Champlin

When we think about relaxing with a great drink and enjoying a day at the track, the first thought that arises might be the Mint Julep (and all those hats at the Kentucky Derby). But you know what? Craft beer works just fine.

With that in mind, be sure to check out the California Gold Rush Beer Festival coming to Santa Anita Park on May 23. Take in a day at the races enjoying the sunny weather and sipping on delicious brews from local area vendors.


Your $35 pass gets you…

  • General admission to the track
  • Ten (10) 3oz. Beer Tastings
  • One (1) 12oz. Serving of your favorite beer
  • Complimentary Racing Program
  • Wagering Tip Sheet
  • Souvenir acrylic pint glass

PLUS: I spotted a deal on Goldstar that gets you a ticket for just $20 (plus fees), so you’ll be able to save a few extra dollars for your wages.

The California Gold Rush Beer festival starts at 12:00pm on Saturday, May 23 at Santa Anita Park, 285 W Huntington Dr, Arcadia, CA 91007.
