Wicks & West Coaster Summer Shindig

Jul 21

On Saturday August 2nd from 2-10 pm West Coaster Southern California Magazine and Wicks Brewing Company in Riverside will come together to host a Summer Shindig!  The highlight of the day is a collaboration beer release – with special glassware – plus a solid tap list of great beers from around the region.

At the Summer Shindig we will be releasing the Wicks & West Coaster Wit, brewed with tons of local produce including fresh strawberries and unique lemon strains from the UCR Citrus Varieties Farm. “We’re lucky to have access to some great local citrus, thanks to co-founder Ryan Wick having graduated from UCR,” said head brewer Brian “Herbie Homebrew” Herbertson.
