Sabor de Baja 2016
6:00 PM18:00

Sabor de Baja 2016

The fourth annual “Sabor de Baja,” will take place Wednesday, August 31, 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Rosarito Beach Hotel. This end of summer, white affair, is a friendly culinary competition among 20 of the best chefs of Baja, paired with the finest wines and artisanal beer producers.

Ticket includes access to all food and wine, live entertainment and a commemorative wine glass.

The intent of the Sabor de Baja is to promote gastronomy and tourism between the U.S. and Baja. Each attendee will be able to taste a pairing of the chefs creations together with the wine or beer producers. There are two main awards given that night: The first is decided by a panel of distinguished judges and the second is called the “People’s Choice” which is decided by popular voting from every attendee who submits a ballot.

VIP seating (limited quantity): guarantees a seat by the stage, entrance to the event 30 minutes before the general public, waiter service to your table, and a “goodie bag” with offerings from local vendors and restaurants.
$75 for members of Mi Casa Supper Club (max two per member)
$85 for non-members

General Tickets (no guaranteed seating, entrance at 6pm)
$60 for members of Mi Casa Supper Club (max two per member)

While this event is open to the public (21 & older - cover charge, see below), it's specifically geared for beer industry insiders from both sides of the border to share their knowledge of craft beer making in hopes of inspiring more cross-border collaboration.

Space permitting, this event is OPEN TO THE PUBLIC with a $10 cover charge at the door. There is NO COVER CHARGE for those who attend the BAJA BEER CRAFT 2015 Tasting Event earlier the same evening -- you'll need to show your hand-stamp from the earlier event for free entry to the after-party.
