Buellton’s 9th Annual Brew Fest Features Breweries, Food, and Music


The 9th annual Buellton Brew Fest will feature over 50 breweries, wineries, spirits and live entertainment in the heart of Santa Barbara Wine Country. Enjoy a great assortment of food trucks, lawn games, and performances from The Voice Finalist Will Breman, DJ Hectik, and Richie Rey on Saturday, May 2nd, 2020 from 12:30pm – 4:30pm.

This year’s brew fest will feature various breweries like local favorites, Firestone Walker Brewing Company and Figueroa Mountain Brewing Company, both whom have made their home in Buellton. Everyone in Santa Barbara County is familiar with Firestone’s 805 beer, named for the local area code. Named after the mountain seen from their family home in nearby Los Olivos, Fig Mountain opened in Buellton, California and set out to pay homage to the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley with handcrafted beer and hand-drawn artwork depicting the local landscape on their labels.  Other craft breweries from Santa Barbara County and beyond that will be at Brew Fest include Sierra Nevada, Solvang Brewing Company, Three Weavers, Topa Topa Brewing, Speakeasy, Institution Ales to name a few.

A finalist from the nationally acclaimed show The Voice on NBC, Will Breman learned to sing when he was just three years old. He was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome, a high-functioning form of autism, and his parents believed music would be helpful in his development. Will went on to attend college in Santa Barbara and stayed in town after graduation to pursue music. Will is currently a one-man-band soul musician and looper who creates various beats and loops them together to sound like multiple musicians.
