By popular demand, Islander Ladies Club is bringing back Coronado’s only beer festival for another year of fun and fundraising at the Ferry Landing. Beer by the Bay is set for Saturday, October 8th from 1-6pm, with a special VIP hour from 12-1pm. The event will feature unlimited beer tastings from more than 15 of San Diego’s best craft brewers; live music from favorite island talent including Matt Heinecke and Ron Wheeler; tasty local fare from Lil Piggy’s, Spiro’s, Candelas, and Village Pizzeria; beer pong, a raffle, and plenty of fun in the sun.
This year, wine tastings from local wineries and a VIP tent have been added to the festivities. VIP ticket holders receive select pours from Coronado Brewing Company, light snacks, a lounge area, and early access to the event. Most importantly, Beer by the Bay will honor fallen Navy SEAL Charles H. Keating IV by donating to One More Wave, and will also benefit Coronado’s Wampler Foundation and Coronado Schools Foundation.

One More Wave
One More Wave is a local, non-profit organization that was dear to the heart of Coronado’s own, Charles H. Keating, IV. He actively participated in this organization by helping wounded or disabled veterans get back in the water. The mission of One More Wave is to give these veterans access to surfing by providing them with custom-shaped surf boards, stand up paddle boards, hand planes, and wetsuits. This enables riders to achieve therapy through the ocean. For more information, visit onemorewave.net.
The Wampler Foundation was founded in 2002 by Steve and Elizabeth Wampler. They wanted to provide a way for children with disabilities to be active participants in programs and activities centered around the great outdoors. They have enabled thousands of kids with physical disabilities, and often economic limitations, to experience the joys and camaraderie of programs that push each child to discover how capable they really are. Camp WAMP provides an experience like every other able-bodied child. The Wampler Foundation introduces the outdoors of the high Sierras with education based on the boy scouts, wilderness survival courses, and the Sierra club’s conservation of nature.
