Beginning at 12:01 am on Friday, February 1st, tickets to the limited Firestone Walker Invitational Beer Festival in Paso Robles will go on sale. Last year, the event sold out in record time, leaving many beer lovers high and dry for a calendar year. This time around, things are expected to be even more intense, so passionate drinkers may want to stay up late to try to snag one of the $75 tickets. The June 1st event will feature over 40 breweries from around the world and food from two dozen of Central Coast California's best eateries. Brewers and owners will also be in attendance, answering questions and sipping some of the best beer in the world.
