Taste of Brews’ upscale Twilight Tasting event marks its triumphant return to the spectacular Lyon Air Museum on Saturday, March 7 for a remarkable evening featuring unlimited tastes of premium craft beers, hard ciders, wines and culinary delights all benefiting charity. Please visit http://www.twilighttasting.com for tickets and information.
Twilight Tasting’s “all-inclusive” boarding pass provides first-class access to the stunning WWII-era museum where attendees are issued a “ration card” checklist (similar to those distributed during the big war) to help locate more than two dozen sampling vendors arranged under the wings of rare operational aircraft, adjacent to riveted metal fuselages, amidst vintage military vehicles and atop the “Twilight Observation Deck” with fabulous views overlooking the entire venue. Vintage posters, galvanized trash cans and custom “pour out” buckets with industrial oil funnels add to the theme while fatigue-clad Navy service members volunteer bartend.
Twilight Tasting ushers in spring with the latest award-winning and limited edition offerings from extraordinary craft breweries. Several OC breweries are in the Twilight mix including Beach City and Four Sons (Huntington Beach) and Barley Forge (Costa Mesa); bringing a new energy and enthusiasm to the local craft beer scene. Not to be outdone Valiant (Orange), Bootleggers (Fullerton), Phantom Ales (Anaheim) and Left Coast (San Clemente) bring a different vibe to Twilight along with some amazing locally brewed craft beer.
San Diego County provides Coronado, Karl Strauss, Stone and Mission Brewery while Hangar 24 (Redlands) and Absolution (Torrance) represent the IE and South Bay. The eclectic Twilight lineup also features Firestone Walker (Paso Robles), Drakes (San Leandro), Einstok (Iceland), Lagunitas (Petaluma), Sierra Nevada (Chico) and Goose Island (Chicago, IL). The rapidly growing hard cider community is represented by Reverend Nat’s (Portland, OR), Wood Chuck (Middlebury, VT) and Phantom Ales.
Eateries providing culinary delights include BBQ Tri Tip from Stonefire Grill (Huntington Beach), Blackened Tilapia Tacos from Rubio’s (Costa Mesa/Santa Ana), Chicken Mole from Diego’s Downtown (Santa Ana) and desserts from Nothing Bundt Cakes (Newport/Costa Mesa) and Paradise Bakery (Mission Viejo) with more restaurants and bakeries to be announced soon.
