The first dinner kicks off with guest brewers, Calicraft Brewing. Calicraft brews beer with a sense of place. They take unexpected, California-grown ingredients, like starthistle honey, Cluster hops, and anise hyssop, and use them as a point of inspiration. They like to think of their beer as the best of California, in a bottle. Calicraft brewers will be present at the picnic and selling their beer for purchase at the event.
