Saturday, October 16, Downtown Burbank will host a Fall Street Fair and Craft Beer Festival. The family-friendly street fair is free to the public and will feature vendors, art, and live music from noon until 7:30 pm. Pets are welcome, but almost everything else is not, like baggy clothes and camel packs. What is a camel pack anyways? There will be food trucks, but we recommend Mama Hongs Vietnamese Kitchen, Octopus Japanese Restaurant, or California Fiesta Tamale House in the Burbank Town Center mall.
To participate in the beer tasting, you will need a ticket to gain entry into the sampling blocks, or “beer zones.” There will be two sessions to avoid overcrowding.
Session 1: Noon – 3pm Check in on the corner of San Fernando Blvd and Orange Grove at Check in 1.
Session 2: 4pm – 7pm check in on the the corner of San Fernando Blvd and E. Olive Ave at Check in 2.
You can look forward to 85 Beers on Tap, including Angel City Brewery, Firestone, Island Brewing Company, Eagle Rock Brewing, Goose Island, Stone Brewing Co., and an assortment of hard ciders. Tickets for each session are $40 plus a $4.25 processing fee from Eventbrite. There are a lot of parking structures nearby, and there will be a shuttle. But the shuttle picks up at the Burbank Police Station, so you better have a sober driver. Although they will have to buy a “Designated Driver” ticket for $10 that only gets them water and the pleasure of your drunk-ass company, so take Uber if you can’t handle your shit.
