Willow Glen beer event Saturday afternoon

Combining the Halloween season’s decorations with California’s burgeoning craft beer scene, a number of Willow Glen retailers are teaming up for a beer walk event this weekend.

Benefiting the Willow Glen Business Association and the Bay Area Brewers Guild, the gathering will feature more than 20 tasting locations and participation from at least 15 breweries from across the state.

Additionally, retail and dining locations along the Willow Glen business strip will be open, including boutique shops, art studios, and more.

Tickets, which are $35 in advance or $40 the day of the event, include samples, a collectable glass, and a beer passport to track your favorites along the way. Designated drivers do not need to purchase tickets. Some locations may welcome children and dogs, while others along the route may not.

The beer walk, set for Saturday, October 26, runs from 2 to 5 p.m. with check in opening at 1:30 p.m. Goosetown Lounge, 1072 Lincoln Ave. in San Jose’s Willow Glen neighborhood is hosting the check in.
