The first South Bay KraftBrew festival was organized by Naglee Park Garage and hosted in an old hall near San Jose State University. We went there on the advice of our friend Peter, who blogs about the South Bay beer scene. Brewers represented included Allagash, Anderson Valley, Flying Dog, Ommegang, North Coast, Port, Tied House, Bear Republic, Lost Coast, Russian River, Telegraph, and several Belgian breweries.
The event was free admission and pay-as-you-go, with tastes going for $2-$3, and food ranging up to $8. Like many such events, they had a ticket system where you had to buy tickets and then use the tickets to get the food.
Not on the face of it an enticing proposition, but in fact we got what we wanted to eat and drink for $20/person... a reasonable deal.
