The 2nd Annual Ready Set Growl Beer Festival sponsored by Whole Foods Tap Room is the largest of it's kind in California. The Ready Set Growl Beer Festival is staged in conjuction with the Santa Rosa Marathon for not only runner's to enjoy, but anyone who loves some of the best craft breweries in the world! The Ready Set Growl festival features all festival paid ticket holders the best swag: custom t-shirt, 32 oz custom Growler, unlimited tastes of over 40 breweries and free food samples from great Sonoma County vendors. To be unique we had Heady Topper beer in limited release at the inaugural festival. This #1 rated beer in the U.S.A had never been distributed outside of Vermont! This year we will again plan on bringing an out of state highly rated or rare beer to the festival for a select serving!
