A weeklong celebration of Davis’ beer culture, highlighting and promoting the community’s thriving craft beer culture begins Monday and continues through Sunday, Aug. 25. The inaugural Davis Beer Week, organized by de Vere’s Irish Pub and Sudwerk Brewery, will take place at various venues in and around downtown Davis.

This seven-day citywide festival aims to attract beer tourism, foster knowledge of regional brewing heritage and serve as a showcase for great beers, restaurants, pubs and other businesses with ties to the craft beer community.

Capping off the week will be the first Bike & Brew Fest on Saturday, Aug. 24, featuring entertainment, food, wine and beer, with proceeds benefiting the U.S. Bicycling Hall of Fame.

During the week, de Vere’s Irish Pub and other venues around town will offer a variety of intriguing tastings of selected domestic and international beers, plus special meal deals featuring selected beers or beer-and-food pairings. Dining locations include Bistro 33, Our House, Uncle Vito’s, Dos Coyotes and Jack’s Urban Eats.

The Bike & Brew fest is a family-friendly event running from 3:30 to 8 p.m. in Central Park, Fourth and C streets. Besides beer, wine, and food, the festival will include live music and an expansive kids’ zone for the young ones to play.

More than 50 domestic and international breweries will participate. American brews include Berryessa Gap Brewery of Winters, Blue Moon, Grand Teton, Lagunitas, Sam Adams, Sierra Nevada and Sudwerk of Davis. Internationals include Affligem, Stella, Guinness, Morreti and Carlsberg. Wine vendors include Artesa, Bogle, Napa Cellars and Rodney Strong.

Ticket prices to the Bike & Brew Fest range from $10 (“designated driver”) to $60 (“VIP tickets,” while available). Tickets include access to the event and the music, a glass for beer and wine tasting, and food from local vendors.
