The BeerFest Grand Tasting will be held in the Madonna Inn Meadows, which is a beautifully landscaped lawn, perfectly situated among scenic parks and breathtaking mountains in San Luis Obispo, California. As you sample the expansive selection of beers available, you can also behold the beautiful scenery the meadow offers.

It is also important to note that the Festival is a benefit event managed by Hospice of San Luis Obispo County. The Hospice of San Luis Obispo (SLO) County is a non-profit grief counseling organization that offers support to anyone who experienced a life-threatening illness or is grieving the death of a loved one. This organization has affected thousands of lives through its grief counseling, respite care, support groups, community outreach efforts, and its resources for individuals caring for loved ones. All Hospice SLO services are provided free of charge, but this is only possible through the donations they receive. As a result, the California Festival of Beers will be contributing 100% of the proceeds made during this event to this amazing organization.

When you attend the California Festival of Beers, you will not only have day full of enjoyment and pleasure, but your contributions will also make it possible for the beneficiaries of Hospice SLO to experience happiness and self-betterment through the wonderful services they receive.
