The Davis Beer and Cider Festival, also known as the Beer Fest or Brew Fest, is an annual event in late May or early June at Sudwerk. It is put on by Citizens Who Care and all proceeds go toward that organization. The event features a boatload of breweries from the region (and some from far and wide) , live music, brewery tours, food, raffles, and so on. The first Beer Fest was held in 2005.
