Battle of the Brews #4
July 9 @ 2:00 pm - 6:30 pm
We’ve inviting 16 Southern Californian breweries to join us 2 at a time Sunday afternoons through the spring and summer at the Notch for some friendly competition. Head up the chair lift to enjoy a flight of beer and you be the judge! Our bartenders will give you a scorecard for notes. After you try all six, you hand in your scorecard with your choice for the brewery best in show. The winner advances through the single elimination bracket in their quest to be the champion of the 2016 Battle of the Brews.
In it’s debut year, the Battle of the Brews became a summertime favorite. With the yuccas blooming, the best beers in the area, live music and a view from the patio from 7,800ft, how could it not be?
The hike from the bottom takes an hour or less for the ‘pros’ and for us cruisers it’s more like an hour and a half.
Ride the lift up and take your time walking down in the evening or hoof it up knowing that you’ll have a nice leisurely ride down to cap off the night.
Whether you plan to ride the lift up or down its a good idea to redeem your package when you first arrive. If you decide to use the lift up proceed then to the lift. If your planning on riding down then pick your path up and start hiking
With this option you have the most versatility for your evening. The chair lift ride is approximately 20 min. Once you arrive at the Notch we suggest hiking to the top of Lift #4 to the Devil’s Backbone trail head. It’s only a couple miles round trip and offers views on both the high desert and the LA Basin. Of course you could always sit back and enjoy the music and socialize at the Notch all evening.
