The success of local brewing has mirrored the growth and focus on locally sustainable industries. The event director, Patrick Grube Jr., suggested, “Like good home cooking, these brews are more interesting and satisfying than the alternatives.”
The six local brewers are: Boulder Creek Brewery, Santa Cruz Ale Works, Santa Cruz Mountain Brewing, Seabright Brewing, Uncommon Brewing, Corralitos Brewing.
Sky Park boosts a very large kids area, a large skate park and also is very dog friendly.
