Twisted Tasting 2019 at the Santa Cruz Civic Auditorium
San Francisco Beer Week notifications continue today with a highlight of the Twisted Tasting of 2019 in Santa Cruz. One of those Beer Week events that would draw a massive following even if it weren’t placed inside of an entire week (or, remember, 10 days) of other such events, the Twisted Tasting is a beer, spirit, cider, and food tasting unlike any other.
While many of the events happening throughout Beer Week focus on a specific brewery or a specific style of beer, a few dare to go beyond. The Twisted Tasting is one of these events, and it eschews categorization or definition in favor of a cosmic array of flavors, styles, and other wonders.
Brewers, distillers, cooking savants, and cider makers have pulled out all the stops in preparation for the Twisted Tasting. Attendees will have the chance to taste some truly one-of-a-kind beverages and snacks, many of which will never be created again. The Twisted Tasting, in other words, caters to those searching for an unreproducible experience, something that will become one of the stories we tell to our friends years after it has past as proof that we were there, that we lived.
One of the highlights of the Twisted Tasting is a series of unique surprises that the event hosts put on, things that have nothing to do with beer but will also compliment your beverage consumption in a very unexpected way. While we can’t say much more about these surprises at this time, it should be enough for us to say that when they are unveiled you will not regret the somewhat steep ticket price for admittance.
The Twisted Tasting will be held at the Santa Cruz Civic Auditorium, located along 307 Church Street in Santa Cruz. Yes, it is a little bit of a hike from downtown San Francisco, but the trip is one well worth making.
Tickets for the Twisted Tasting are currently priced at $85 per person. They are going fast though, so if you are interested in making sure you get to be a part of one of the most hotly anticipated beer events of the year get your ticket ASAP!
