Craft beer festival at Dale Bros to benefit the Claremont Educational Foundation

In celebration of Dale Bros Brewery’s 11th anniversary, the Upland-based brewers will host the “Brews and Bros Craft Beer Festival” next week with proceeds benefiting the Claremont Educational Foundation (CEF). The event, to be held Saturday, January 25 from 1 to 5 p.m., will feature 25 local breweries and more than 50 brews, as well as live music provided by local bands Powerflex 5 and The Dogs.

This family-friendly event will include a vintage trailer show and food from local restaurants and vendors, kids games and craft sodas. General admission tickets are $40 per person, anyone under 21 or designated driver tickets are $10, children 12 and under are free. VIP admission is $50 per person, which includes a keepsake glass, preferred parking and a “meet the brewer” special event. 

CEF provides financial support to the Claremont Unified School District throughout the year to enhance educational opportunities for students. Last year, CEF gifted more than $210,000 to CUSD with all funds raised through a community-wide effort with partners like Dale Bros.

“CEF is very excited by the opportunity to partner with Dale Bros Brewery,” CEF Board President Richard Chute said. “The Dale brothers, Curt and Andy, and their staff are committed to the community and often host fundraisers supporting local nonprofits at the brewery. It’s just how they do business. They do well by doing good and we are truly fortunate to work with them on their biggest event of the year.”  

In addition to raising much-needed funds for CEF, the event will also feature a “Brew Crew Tipping Competition” to raise donations for other local nonprofits. Claremonters and other locals will be pouring beer for the craft breweries to garner tips for their favorite local charity. The pourer with the largest dollar amount of tips will get bragging rights on stage at the end of the afternoon. All tips raised from the event will be donated to CEF or to the chosen charities.
