Beer & Baseball

Saturday, July 15, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. - Brewers and ballplayers have always gone together, especially in Sacramento. With a team sponsored by a major brewery, the bases may not have been the only thing loaded.

No beer will be served at this event, but we will feature a special guest appearance by Dinger, the Sacramento River Cats mascot!
