Beer, art & music collide at Karl Strauss’ B.A.M.! #2

The brewery hosts the event this Saturday to benefit the Rob Machado Foundation

This Saturday, August 23, Karl Strauss presents B.A.M.! #2, a free event in the Karl Strauss Tasting Room and Beer Garden in Pacific Beach starting at 5 p.m.

The series brings together live music, curated art, handcrafted beer and food, all to benefit the Rob Machado Foundation that supports charities dedicated to environmental programs worldwide.


Of course, it’s not a Karl Strauss party without their 20 beers on tap, plus small-batch beers and food supplied by the Drunken Grill food truck.

Art during the evening will be curated by Thumbprint Gallery, set to include two dozen hand-painted growlers for sale. While you’re imbibing, listen to beats by DJ Ori and a live performance by the Paul Cannon Band.

A raffle featuring prizes like a hand-painted acoustic guitar from Taylor Guitars, autographed Rob Machado gear and a private acoustic session by the Paul Cannon Band will donate 100% of proceeds to the cause.

This event has no admission cost. For more information, visit
