Danksauce for your domepiece

You are invited to experience the glorious, lupulin-fueled majesty of our 5th Annual Festival of Dankness. This August 24th, an armada of the world's most powerful beer sorcerers will descend upon San Diego's beautiful Waterfront Park bearing gifts of unparalleled hop-centric wonderment. Stunning displays of exotic hops, cutting edge brewing approaches, and awe-inspiring mastery of alpha acids will abound, and the list of participating breweries is nothing short of spectacular.

We've carefully curated the festival list to include breweries we feel are truly and uniquely radical, and the beers on offer will be some of the singularly delicious and inventive in the world. There will be a cadre of amazing brewers in attendance, so in addition to insanely tasty beers and awesome waterfront views of downtown San Diego, you'll have an opportunity to high-five, compliment, and pick the brains of some of the brewing industry's best and brightest.

We'll have some super choice food trucks on hand to sate your epicurean desires (including vegan options), a bunch of convenient water stations, and more sexy merch than you can shake a stick at.

All profits from this day of delicious frivolity will go to BikeSD, a non-profit at the forefront of making San Diego a better, more sustainable place to ride.

Ride Your Bike

The kind folks at BikeSD will be running a bike valet right in front of the festival! Ride your bike right up to the front, and someone else will do the hard work of keeping it safe for you.

Trolley & Amtrak

This is a map of the trolley. What’s super rad is that there is a stop right in front of Waterfront Park, making this option one of the most convenient transportation options. Coming from North County? Take the Amtrak into Santa Fe Depot. Huzzah!
