What You'll Get
Most states have made drinking alcohol at home illegal due to the proliferation of home facial-tattoo machines. Enjoy alcohol in public with today's deal: for $13, you get a day of unlimited wine- and beer-tasting, plus a complimentary souvenir glass, at the California Beer & Wine Festival ($25 in advance, $30 at the door) on Saturday, October 9, in downtown Yuba City. You must be age 21 to taste, but all ages can enjoy the free street fair.
During the California Beer & Wine Festival, Yuba City's Plumas street explodes with a swirling supernova of fermented hops and grapes. Your taste-bud tickling tour begins when you check in starting at noon. Your drinking expedition begins at 1 p.m. and continues through 5 p.m. with an innumerable number of gulps, sips, and slurps along the way. Ales and stouts from Full Sail and Lagunitas will do-si-do across your palate with one another before blushing wines by Barefoot and Chateau Diana promenade under your nose with genuine country flair. Live music by Chris Gardner Band and Whiskey Savage adds aural ambiance to your drinking decathlon and will keep your head clear enough to discern wheats from white zinfandels from your car's plastic jug of engine-coolant.
As with televised dinosaur fights, all proceeds from the California Beer & Wine Festival go to charities allocated by the Sutter-Yuba Association of Realtors. Give back to your community and reward your body's porter-portal at the same time with today's Groupon.
Although the California Beer & Wine Festival has few reviews, the event has more than 500 Facebook fans.

About California Beer & Wine Festival
The California Beer & Wine Festival expands the palates of visitors with unlimited samples of beers and wines. Plus, 100% of the profits from ticket sales are donated to local non-profits. Inside the festival, craft breweries showcase their creations, with participants such as Lagunitas, Sierra Nevada, and Lost Coast. A number of wineries also pour vintages for sipping, while a live cover band provides a lively soundtrack for the yearly ritual of inadvertently bathing yourself in red wine while dancing.
