The LA Beer Float Showdown will be at the Blue Palms Brewhouse in Hollywood, California on July 26. The Golden State Café and BottleRock LA are squaring off to give Los Angeles a taste of how beer can be used in this special desert pairing. The Golden State Café began serving North Coast Brewing Company’s Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout with Scoops ice cream and was soon followed by BottleRock combining Brewery Ommegang’s Ommegang Rouge with Milk ice cream.
The competition begins Sunday July 26 at 3:30 PM, with the entry fee including four 8 oz floats, two from each competitor. The attendees will then judge the floats on flavor, originality and presentation. Flavor combinations will be a closely guarded secret until the showdown begins.
Proceeds of this competition cover the cost of product with the majority of the money going to 826LA, a writing/tutoring charity.
Tickets cost $23 if you RSVP with firstname.lastname@example.org by July 25. Day-of admission is $28. In both cases, people pay in cash at the door. 21+ only. More information here.
