Over Memorial Weekend California's Great America kicked off their all new Craft Beer festival "Red, White and Brews". This seems like it's a pilot for the rest of the chain and if it is, you are all going to have some amazing times drinking amazing beers at Cedar Fair parks in the very near future.
For a first year event it went off amazing.

Welcome to California's Great America on a beautiful late-spring day.
These chairs are empty now, they won't be for long. =)
A little introduction to Red, White and Brews from the park. Just to let you know what to expect.
As with other events in the chain, the tasting card is your absolute best bet.
All of the food and beer is in the area around Patriot, which makes it really nice to just sit and enjoy for awhile.
The booths match perfectly and are very inviting
Lots of music and fun as well including Dueling Pianos
One of these things is not like the other. =)
The San Jose Brew Bike is also there and is a lot of fun. Although Kristi may have just liked taking pics of the driver. =)
Some of the food.
For a first year event Red, White and Brews was amazing. We can only see it going up from here and wouldn't be surprised at all to see it expanded to more dates next year.
Just a couple of quick notes from the rest of the park.
Berserker was down.
Hope this isn't a sign of bad things ahead. Far too few of these left.
We finally rode Patriot and it was awesome!!
Last but not least, not a huge fan of "Coaster" shirts, but love this one. Also comes in black. May have to grab one on our next visit.
