3rd Annual Bakersfield Craft Beer Festival Comes to CSUB

The 3rd Annual Bakersfield Craft Beer Festival will be held from noon to 5:00 p.m. on May 23rd at the California State University, Bakersfield (CSUB) Amphitheatre. The Craft Beer Festival was created by Imbibe Wine & Spirits Merchant and Moo Creamery. The Craft Beer Festival will donate a portion of the proceeds to the Benefit Bakersfield Foundation, a nonprofit organization that donates to Kern County-based organizations focused on providing child and family services, and the CSUB Alumni Association, which provides local graduates opportunities for mentorship and leadership in Kern County and beyond.

“The CSUB Alumni Association is very grateful for the vital support to our program that the Bakersfield Craft Beer Festival has provided in the past,” says Sarah Hendrick, Director of the Office of Alumni Relations. “It allows us to develop meaningful programs and events that give alumni opportunities to volunteer, participate and support the advancement of CSUB. Our goal is to motivate all CSUB alumni to make their affiliation with their alma mater a lifetime commitment, while promoting the educational and career excellence of all alumni and the University. We look forward to continuing our partnership with the Bakersfield Craft Beer Festival for years to come.”
