The Breast Fest

My dear Aunt and namesake Christine just passed away from breast cancer this April, so when I saw this event, I thought it fitting to give you all a heads up about it! Even though it sounds like the kind of event where you might see t-shirts, and they might be wet, The Breast Fest is actually an annual craft beer festival that helps raise funds to fight breast cancer.

The 8th Annual "Fermenting Change" Microbreweries Battling Breast Cancer Brewfest or the "Breast Fest," hosted by the Marin Brewing Company and Moylan's Brewery & Restaurant & Noonan's Bar and Grill is being held this Saturday, July 12th from 1-5pm in Larkspur, CA. ALL proceeds to benefit Charlotte Maxwell Complementary Clinic.

In the past eight years, the “Breweries Battling Breast Cancer” event has managed to donate over $100,000 for the clinic, in hopes of offering help to those needing but not having enough income for cancer services.

With offices in Oakland and San Francisco, CMCC is a state-licensed primary care clinic providing free complementary alternative medicine treatments (acupuncture, massage therapy, Chinese and Western herbs, therapeutic imagery), social services and educational workshops for low-income women with cancer.

The beer-tasting benefit offers a wonderful opportunity to sample and compare some of the finest locally brewed beers in a fun, sunny outdoor setting while listening to live music. Some of the breweries included in this year’s benefit are: Moylan’s, 21st Amendment, Iron Springs, Lagunitas, Magnolia Pub & Brewery, Bear Republic, Rubicon, Russian River, Third Street Ales Works, to name a few.

Admission for the event is $30 in advance (tickets sold until 5pm on July 11th) and $35 at the door. Advance tickets can be purchased at Marin Brewing Company or Moylan’s Brewery & Restaurant, Marin Brewing Company is located at:

Larkspur Landing Courtyard
