April 8: Brew Brawl in Santa Rosa

The West Coast’s best breweries are once again presenting their top beers for the 21st annual Battle of the Brews. The day starts with the revered Craft Cup, a juried tasting event that also features the Sandwich Showdown, in which local chefs compete to make the tastiest concoctions between two slices of bread. The battle’s main event is a People’s Choice competition where you get to decide whose suds are studs. Presented by the Active 20-30 Club of Santa Rosa, the event also benefits kids in need. Raise a glass on Saturday, April 8, at Sonoma County Fairgrounds’ Grace Pavilion, 1350 Bennett Valley Road, Santa Rosa. 1pm. $50–$95. battleofthebrews.com.
