Description: Taste of Brews has evolved into a massive celebration of the Inland Empire’s ever-growing and influential craft beer industry.  The unusual venue, home to the Koroneburg Renaissance Festival, adds a layer of excitement and intrigue with its eclectic buildings, statues, shops and assorted pathways, many of which host a “sampling” station.

While the IE is well-represented with standouts like Packinghouse, IE Brewing and Heroes (Riverside), Brew Rebellion (Yucaipa), Sons of Liberty (Norco), Wiens, Black Market & Refuge Brewery (Temecula), Hangar 24 (Redlands) and Craft Brewing Company (Lake Elsinore), a number or popular regional and national breweries are tucked amid the park’s nooks and crannies.  Attendees can sample from an extensive roster that features Sam Adams, Stone, Sierra Nevada, Karl Strauss, Firestone, Fireman’s, Lagunitas and Ace Hard Cider among others.
