HessFest XI - Walnut Creek

2313 Oak Grove Rd, Walnut Creek, CA 94598, USA


Making its Northern California debut, Mike Hess Brewing presents HessFest XI!

HessFest XI is on like Donkey Kong!! Join us August 8th as we celebrate 11 years of Great Beer, No Exceptions while we raise money and awareness for two awesome organizations: MIB Agents (a foundation focused on pediatric osteosarcoma) and Dogs for Diabetics.

We're expanding our premises and taking over 40,000 square feet of empty lot next to MHB Walnut Creek in The Orchards shopping center and will have a stage set-up for three bands, a free cornhole tournament, 20 different beers, homemade root beer, great food and so much more! 

Family-friendly. Dog-friendly. Grab your blanket and lawn chairs, and head to MHB Walnut Creek for a celebration to wind up summer, featuring live music from The Samples (all the way from Boulder, Colorado), Walnut Creek/Bay Area locals Stewart Patrick opening and the return of, Carly Thomas!  And, unlike so many festivals, MHB donates 100% of the net proceeds to our two charity foundations - you can have a great time while doing good.
