“We know our fans have been clamoring for a return to normal, and bands have been dying to get back on stage..."
Mike Hess Brewing of San Diego will be celebrating their 11-year anniversary of bringing people together over great beer around great causes by hosting not one, but two block parties—HessFest XI—both in Northern California at their Walnut Creek location and in SoCal at the Imperial Beach Pier Plaza. The two events will be held on August 8th and 28th respectively. This year’s annual events are highly anticipated after having to cancel festivities last year due to the pandemic and mark the first time Hess has brought the celebration north. HessFest displays MHB’s commitment to their mission, not only gathering their community around craft beer, but also by raising funds for a few very special charities.
Net proceeds from ticket sales to HessFest Walnut Creek will be donated to Dogs for Diabetics and MIB Agents, while The Navy SEAL Foundation and Next Step Service Dogs will be the beneficiaries of the SoCal HessFest. Mike Hess Brewing has a long history of philanthropic efforts and community work and HessFest is just one way that the San Diego staple has contributed to the communities they call home. Since their launch in 2010, MHB has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for various non-profit organizations at dozens of events including St. Baldrick’s head-shaving, Rising Hope IPA with the Nat’l Pediatric Cancer Foundation, Cookies on Tap with the Girl Scouts of San Diego, and many others.
