Saturday afternoon, October 20, 2012, was the first Hollywood On Tap beer festival benefiting The Blank Theatre Company. This fund raising event was held at Paramount Studios in Hollywood. The festival included more than 40 craft brews and included dozens of local craft brewers, several food trucks and live music. 100% of the proceeds went to benefit The Blank Theatre Company, a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization. Regular readers of this blog know that I have been attending many beer festivals sin the last several months; so of them have been going on for a while and a few of them have been first time events. If I did not know better, I would have thought this was an event that had been going on for a while. It was very well done.
They had just under 1,000 attendees which is very good for a first time event, and there were no obvious issues for anyone. The live music included a Who tribute band and a couple others along with a DJ. While the Who cover band was my favorite, it was pretty obvious everyone was enjoying all the music. As far as the beer was concerned, there were several award winners from the 2012 Great American Beer Festival held last week. I could go on, but looking at the photos will show you what a good time it was and how much fun people were having. I am really glad we went and I can not wait to see what happens should they have a 2nd Annual Hollywood On Tap. I sure hope that happens; I will be there if it does.
