  • The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel, is bringing back its Culinary Cookout series and kicking it off with a beachside beer festival called Brews & Bites.
  • On February 19th, from 1 to 4 pm, attendees can sample beers from well-known local breweries such as the Bruery and Bottle Logic Brewery.
  • The festival will also offer a chance to try unique brews from innovative breweries while enjoying the beautiful Pacific Ocean views from the event’s location on the Dana Lawn. Beer enthusiasts are in for a treat at this fun afternoon event.

The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel, is set to ignite a culinary event this year, and its first event for 2023 is a beachside beer festival – Brews & Bites.

The event promises a cornucopia of brewers at the Dana Point resort on February 19th, from 1 to 4 p.m. Located on the resort’s Dana Lawn with breathtaking vistas of the Pacific Ocean, the festival will offer a myriad of renowned local breweries such as Placentia’s Bruery and Anaheim’s Bottle Logic Brewery. Beer lovers will also have the opportunity to relish exotic brews from far-flung innovators such as Bow & Arrow Brewing Co.,

New Mexico’s first Native American and women-owned brewery, and Peoples’ Republic of South Central, South Los Angeles’ first Black-owned craft brewery.

โ€œWe are not just a brewery but a beverage company. We are mostly doing beer, but we are also doing product development. We have a winery license, Iโ€™ve got a cider line coming out, we are doing some wine blending and making some mead, so we are doing many different projects.โ€

Peopleโ€™s Republic Co-founder and Director of production Samuel Chawinga

Other Breweries and Tickets

According to the LA Times, the Brews & Bites festival will host breweries from different parts of California, including Peoplesโ€™ Republic, JuneShine, and Baja Brewing Co. The festival, to be held on February 19th, will also feature the OC Local Taproom, which showcases independent breweries from Orange County, San Diego, and the Inland Empire.

Guests who purchase a $150 ticket can indulge in unlimited beer tastings, a keepsake glass, and an array of global street food options like wood-fired Bavarian pretzels, Korean corn dogs, New Delhi fish and chips, and tacos. Chawinga, one of the organizers, remarked that the food choices were carefully selected to complement the beer selection.

Festival of Lights
