Capitol Beer Fest, Fall Addition

Real Estate Agent with eXp Realty of California, Inc. (lic. #01878277) DRE# 00949880

Our last Capitol Beer Fest was held the week before California was locked down due to the pandemic and we had to postpone it this spring, but we are back.  It is the number one fundraiser for Runnin for Rhett, the local charity that I support.  We are dedicated to getting our community to Move Into Life.  Twice a year we send coaches to local schools to train kids to run, what for many, is their first 5k.  It is all free; the training, the race, a t-shirt and their medal.  We also fund raise to give one thousand kids that need them, a pair of running shoes.

Run Because You Can Race 2019

Capitol Beer Fest will be a fun event with over 100 different brewers offering selections of their different beers and hard ciders.  Make sure to visit our local Elk Grove brewer, Dreaming Dog.  They have been a big supporter of our local Runnin for Rhett Meetup at their place for years. We meet there for one of our weekly runs every Monday and they treat us just great.

There will also be a great selection of food trucks to purchase some great food.  I am looking forward to Bacon Mania, Drewski's and Nash Proper for some tasty treats for me to try.

We also will have plenty of music to enjoy; one live band and three DJ's.

It will be fun!  The weather is supposed to be perfect and the proceeds from Capitol Beer Fest supports kids Moving into Life.  I hope to see you out there.


(Note-proof of vaccination or recent negative Covid test required)

If you can't make this event, we will be back to our normal spring dates next year.

Move Into Life!

Go Rhett!

I think we were lucky.  First, to get our last beer fest in before California locked everything down and then second, to be able to get this one in.  It is such a big fundraiser for Runnin for Rhett, Joan Cox.  Hopefully, yours will be back neck year too.

Hi Ron and Alexandra Seigel.  It is really nice to be back on track again.  We will be doing it again in March, if all goes well so the next article will not be too far away. 🙂


It is generally a very good event and most of the attendees are very good-natured, Wanda Kubat-Nerdin - Wanda Can! As for me, I doubt I will even have a taste.  My shift starts at 545 AM and ends about 6 PM.  It is a long day, but well worth it.  Hopefully, one day your area will have a great celebration too.

Hi Wendy Rulnick and thank you very much.  The founders of Runnin for Rhett, Randy and Beth Seevers, have a goal of getting a pair of shoes for every kid that runs in the race, but that can be 3-4 thousand kids.  They are good at reaching their goals so maybe one day we will get there.  Our fundraiser for the shoes is Sacramento's Big Day of Giving.

What a wonderful event, Ray, and a wonderful program to support. Beer drinkers will be in heaven; kids will get moving. A win-win, if you ask me.

It sounds like a very fun event and I would definitely need a designated driver because I would want at least a taste of most of the beers, haha.

Hello Raymond - I have never been much of a beer drinker but this post has me starting to hum along to "99 Bottles of Beer. . .".

Good Morning, Kathy Streib.  It was Saturday.  The weather was great and the event went very smoothly.  We did not sell out, as we usually do, but it was very well attended and we did raise a lot of money for the kids in our community.  It was a really long day, though.


Thank you, I think it was definitely a win-win, Nina Hollander, Broker and the event was a big success.   You never really know in our current environment how it will all turn out.

If you are every here during the event, Brian England, I will make sure you get to taste all the beers on the menu, right after you help me at the gate for an hour. 🤣  When beer drinkers line up to get into an event, it is all hands on deck.  We can't keep the customer waiting!  We had a small setback and could not open up for VIP at 12.  We opened at 12:04.  It turns out VIP is very good at checking the time and there were small rumblings.  Everything else ran like clockwork, though.  


I think we may have a new theme song, Michael Jacobs.  We could use you on the marketing committee!  😉  It is kind of funny, my tastes are running back to the old fashioned beers I grew up on, like Miller Light and Bud Light.  Boy, do I get a ribbing from all my friends.

Hi Roy Kelley.  We had our last festival the week before California closed down and had to postpone it from March to October to be able to have this one.  We required proof of vaccination so we hope we were careful and healthy.  I hope you are doing well and have a great week!
