Does Dad love to unwind with a craft beer in hand and rock music on the stereo? This Father’s Day, bring him to Gene Simmons’ Rock & Brews restaurant in El Segundo to enjoy the second annual Local Craft Beer Festival from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Southern California breweries will open their taps with a portion of proceeds to benefit City Year Los Angeles.
Fathers and beer lovers can raise their glasses to participating breweries that include The Bruery, El Segundo Brewing, Bootlegger’s Brewery, Strand Brewing, Cismontane Brewing, Eagle Rock Brewery, Smog City Brewery, Figueroa Mountain Brewing, Golden Road, Hangar 24, Monkish, Port Town, TAPS, and more. A brewer or senior representative will be on site for each participating brewery. Each brewery will bring a selection of their beers featuring limited, seasonal and special releases.
Rock & Brews’ favorite menu selections will also be available to guests as part of a buffet, including the gluten-free Rock & Brews special pizza with house made tomato sauce, mozzarella and parmesan cheeses, meatballs, spicy pepperoni, Italian sausage, mushrooms, onions and black olives; our hand pulled pork sandwich with slow roasted, spice rubbed pork simmered in house made barbeque sauce on a fresh baked sesame bun; authentic Bavarian pretzel served with spicy-sweet mustard; Al’s Asian spicy wings with sweet and tangy sauce, finished with chopped cilantro; and purple rain chocolate drops that include chocolate filled beignets drizzled with raspberry sauce and served with a side of whipped cream for dipping. For an additional cost, guests can order from the two taco carts that will be on site.
The event is limited to those ages 21 and over. Tickets are $50 per person and include 8 four-ounce pours, a lunch buffet ticket and a commemorative beer glass to take home. Guests can purchase additional pours at an extra cost. Tickets are limited, and are expected to sell out quickly. Designated driver tickets will be available for $25 and include unlimited buffet and non-alcoholic drinks.
Rock & Brews is owned by Gene Simmons, Michael Zislis and Dave Furano, who designed the dining destination to resemble a backstage rock concert.
