The L.A. Beer Float Showdown returns for LA Beer Week, and this year, five top chefs are collaborating with five top California breweries to develop imaginative beer floats. Every attendee is a judge, voting on “flavor,” “originality” and “presentation,” and the winning team not only gets glory, they also walk away with $500.
The five teams:
The event is on October 15 at Eagle Rock Brewery from 1 p.m. – 4 p.m., rain or shine, and General Admission Tickets cost $35 per person, including tax. VIP tickets are available through Thrillist for $45, which tacks on an early session that lasts from 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m and involves all-you-care-to-eat Filipino-style roast pig, lumpia and pancit from Neri’s Curbside Cravings, temporarily bottomless glasses of Revolution, Manifesto and Solidarity from Eagle Rock Brewery, and a chance to hang with the chefs and brewery participants from 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
After 1 p.m., Neri’s will stick around to sell their old school and new school Filipino food, and Eagle Rock Brewery is selling beer.
25% of event proceeds will go to Share Our Strength, which is a charitable organization working to eliminate childhood hunger.
*Attendees must be 21 or over.
*Parking is limited on Roswell Street, and since the event is taking over the Eagle Rock Brewery parking lot, your best bet is to park a block away on Fletcher Drive, east of San Fernando Road. Click Here For a Map.
