Surf ‘n’ Suds Beer Festival is Back in 2021!

The eighth annual Surf ‘n’ Suds Beer Festival in Carpinteria, Presented by Booze League, will take place Saturday, August 14th, 2021.

The “Beer Festival with a Surf Twist” has the best of both worlds at the Carpinteria State Beach in Carpinteria from 11:30 a.m. / 12:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.

We will follow all CDC and Local Health Department Guidelines and your safety is our top priority!

This is the largest craft beer festival on the Central Coast, with over 70 craft breweries, ciders, seltzers, kombucha, and wineries!

Live music by Cornerstone Reggae, Kali Sol, and DJ Hecktik!

We have a huge variety of food trucks and vendors, lawn games, including mega-sized beer pong, and plenty of places to sit in the shade!

We are right next to the beach and there are campsites available at the Carpinteria State Beach (book now, or campsites will sell out).

Make sure you get to Surf ‘n’ Suds safely! Amtrak drops off right at our front gate, and Jump on the Brew Bus can pick you up at Figueroa Mountain Brewing in Santa Barbara (11 a.m.), and M Special in Goleta (10:30 a.m.)!
