Like others in the North Bay, the organizers behind Santa Rosa’s long-running Battle of the Brews have turned their attention to helping those devastated by last October’s wildfires. And they’re doing it the only way they know how: with a lot of beer. This weekend’s Sonoma County Fire Relief Beer Event
features dozens of craft brewers and food vendors and benefits ongoing fire relief and recovery efforts. The beer flows on Saturday, April 7, at Sonoma County Fairgrounds, 1350 Bennett Valley Road, Santa Rosa. VIP hours, noon to 3pm; main event, 3pm to 7pm. $50 and up. firereliefbeerevent.com.
