The Beer Garden: A curated tasting trail through California’s native plants | SOLD OUT

Santa Barbara Botanic Garden
March 11, 2023
11:30AM - 4:00PM

As the Garden’s main fundraising event of the year, the Beer Garden supports core programs in environmental education, conservation and research, and native plant horticulture. Surrounded by the natural beauty of Mission Canyon, 400 ticket holders are invited to explore the Garden’s 5.5 miles of walking trails while enjoying one-of-a-kind beers uniquely paired with California native plants. Guests can engage with our beer curator and expert docents to learn more about the selection of beers and the Garden’s living collection. Acoustic music performances, nature education tables, and paired finger foods supplied by area restaurants add to this multi-sensory, outdoor experience.

Even if you cannot attend this event, you can still support the Garden by participating in our silent auction.
