Turns out dining at The Wynn steakhouse is the most expensive way possible to consume Gardein. $34 for a reheated frozen patty. Still tasted good! (at The Country Club)

if you have never been to the LA Vegan Beer and Food Fest, let’s just say it’s the best vegan event on the planet if you’re a fan of beer, food, music and all around awesomeness in general. ticket price includes UNLIMITED BEER from a slew of craft breweries handpicked by Tony’s Darts Away, band performances curated by Nic Adler, owner of The Roxy, and access to the best of the best vegan food vendors that Los Angeles has to offer, selected by me. 

a limited amount of non-drinking tickets are available on the cheap for the food fans and designated drivers…and for a little extra you can get a VIP ticket which includes early entry to the fest and access to our comfy VIP lounges with special VIP beers. 

for tickets, go here now. and like i said, be fast! tickets do not include the price of food.

for photos of last year’s fest taken by attendees, click here. and watch this snazzy video put together by wesawit.

oh and i’m including my photos from last year below, although i was too busy running around to take very many. to give you an idea of how amazing it was, we had over 30 vegan vendors (think seabirds, doomies, frankenstand, sage etc) and over 30 craft breweries (think golden road, stone, anchor, drakes and loads more). this year is going to be even bigger and better with an upgraded beer list and even more food. wowie!

hope to see you all there, and watch this space for updates on beer, musical acts, and food.
