2016 Brews & Bros. – A HUGE Success!

The 3rd annual Dale Bros. Craft Beer Festival was a huge success!  The event was sold out, the rain held out and people from near and far came to Cable Airport to sample a wide variety of craft beer, eat delicious food and listen to live reggae music by Upstream. Many thanks to all of our event sponsors who helped make this festival one of the “Top 42 Things To Do in LA”, as reported by welikela.com.  And most importantly, thank you to Dale Bros. Brewery for partnering with CEF and helping us to support public education in Claremont.  We greatly appreciate your dedication to the Foundation, and the community as a whole.  In addition, thank you Coates Cyclery for donating an awesome bike.  Congrats to winner Bill Grist!
