This year’s Beer by the Bay is Saturday, September 23rd from 1-6pm, with a special VIP hour from 12-1pm. The event, expanded from previous years, features unlimited beer tastings from more than 20 of San Diego’s best craft brewers; unlimited wine tastings from select local wineries; a new home brewers section with tastings; live music from favorite island talent including Matt Heinecke and In Midlife Crisis; tasty local fare available for purchase; beer pong, a photo booth, raffle prizes, and plenty of fun in the sun.

The famed VIP tent is back again with exclusive pours from Coronado Brewing Company, light snacks, a lounge area, and early access to the event. Most importantly, Beer by the Bay will benefit Coronado’s Wampler Foundation and Coronado SAFE.

Wampler Foundation
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.

Coronado SAFE
It is the mission of Coronado SAFE to partner with parents and the community to develop and sustain healthy and responsible youth and families. Their mission in action is to provide on-campus enrichment programs for students pre-k through high-school, offer weekly, monthly, and annual parent education workshops, and host donation-based counseling support services for students and families in need. The programs are designed to help youth develop strong social-emotional, resiliency, stress management, and communication skills which actively help to prevent anxiety, depression, substance abuse, and suicide. Their workshops engage parents and the community in an open dialogue to reduce the stigma of these complex issues and they firmly believe that solutions can be found by working together.
