Saturday, October 22 marks the debut of Ye Scallywag!, a day-long music, craft beer, wine and food festival, to take place at Waterfront Park in San Diego, CA. Produced by premier music festival production company Synergy Global Entertainment (SGE) and Orange County, California's most successful and respected craft beer festival producer Brew Ha Ha Productions, the festival will feature over 100 craft beers and artisan wines, along with a full day of music.

Brew Ha Ha Productions' Cameron Collins explains, "Ye Scallywag! is just around the corner and we couldn't be more excited about it. We have some incredible breweries coming out, many who have brought home awards from this year's Great American Beer Festival (GABF), one of the most prestigious beer events in the US. We'll have a lot of world class beers at the event including RIIP Brewing out of Huntington Beach, CA who just won silver in the IPA Category, essentially making them the brewers of the #2 IPA in the world, along with Figueroa Mountain Brewing, who came home with a handful of medals. We'll also have class act wineries participating including Flora Springs, who really embody the essence of the event with their craft focus on wine. Not to mention the great bands who are playing, the amazing weather we're expecting, and our killer food pairing stage."

Sycuan Casino Executive Chef Paul Schwab will be hosting food pairing sessions throughout the course of the day for attendees to enjoy. With a theme of land, sea, and air, Chef Paul will be making stout braised short rib complete with Shropshire Blue cheese corn bread, Hudson cherries, and petite arugula; peppered applewood bacon wrapped shrimp accompanied with cucumber seaweed salad and sweet chili cream cheese; and peach BBQ duck cornmeal with fried peaches, tangerine lace, and drunken goat cheese. Each course will be paired with fine wine and beer selections from the festival's featured breweries and wineries. Sessions will take place in between music sets and will be limited to 50 participants per session. While additional patrons can watch and listen, only 50 people will be able to participate in the actual tastings, so early arrival is suggested.

During early entry tastings (from 11:00 AM-3:00 PM), and general admission tastings (from 12:00 PM-3:00 PM), Ye Scallywag! attendees will enjoy craft beer and wine samples from top breweries and wineries. Local food trucks and pop-up restaurants will also be on site selling a variety of delicious and unique food options throughout the day and evening. After 3:00 PM, liquor will be available for purchase at concessions, including Deep Eddy Vodka and Tequiponch. Additionally, several Ye Scallywag! brewers and wineries will offer drinks for purchase, with music continuing until 7:00 PM.

Live music will be on the BMW of Escondido Main Stage, with performances by NOFX, Bad Religion, Goldfinger, Against Me!, Reel Big Fish, and Wakrat. Music kicks off around 12:00 PM.
