Baja Craft Beer Event in Balboa Park


#1

This may be your opportunity to taste some of the craft beer (FN…stop reading here) without having to cross the border. The Mingei is having a Baja Beer Craft tasting on Friday, Nov 13th from 6 - 9 pm. $20 if you’re a member of the Mingei or $25 if you’re not.

I have no affiliation with either the Mingei (let my membership lapse a few years go) or any of the craft brewers in Baja.

Thanks for the link, DD. I had to drill down on the site, but at the moment the list of participating “craft” breweries is unpopulated.

I know that there are numerous small local breweries in Mexico, but didn’t realize there were many (if any) in Baja. Sounds interesting.

By the way, how come if a brewery is small, it’s “craft”, but not so for tiny wineries?? (As most who know me know, I don’t like the word “craft” for anything, but I guess it’s stuck in the case of beers.)


#3

I guess vintners like the sound of boutique better than craft?

There are actually quite a few craft beers coming out of Baja at the moment. The ones I’ve had have been quite nice

Dave and I might go to this, thank you for the link.
