Typically the month of October is reserved for brewfests all over the world, but in Sacramento we celebrate beer year-round. With the explosion of the farm-to-fork movement in the city coupled with the nationwide resurgence of craft breweries, Sacramento is a destination for beer lovers. More than 60 local breweries operate in and around the city, and many of them source their ingredients locally, ensuring unique flavor profiles and truly local beers.

Sacramento has a long history as a beer town. Before Prohibition, Sacramento breweries took advantage of the region's agricultural bounty, making Sacramento the largest beer production spot west of the Mississippi. Today's Sacramento beer scene is vibrant, from tours of hop yards owned by local brewers to beer dinners, brew bike tours, multiple beer festivals, the Farm-to-Fork Celebration and craft brew tasting rooms.

Looking for an off-site idea? How about incorporating a beer-related festival or activity in your Sacramento conference itinerary. Your delegates will love you for it.
