The region's top chefs and restaurants will serve delectable tacos and attendees can enjoy Lucha Libre style wrestling, lawn games, contests, and more. Beer tastings will vary by city according to local alcohol laws and restrictions.

Dexter Holland of The Offspring said, "Tacos and craft beer are two of The Offspring's favorite things! We're excited to be bringing Sabroso to new cities in 2018! See you at the shows!"

"Sabroso offers craft beer from some of the best, top-awarded breweries in the nation and pairs them with some of the tastiest tacos in the region. It's truly an experience unlike anything seen before," Sabroso co-producer Cameron Collins of Brew Ha Ha Productions said. "The festival will offer everything from savory carne asada and carnitas to delicious fresh fish tacos, and of course, craft beer favorites like IPAs, pale ales, stouts, lagers and more!"

During VIP early entry tastings (from Noon — 4:00 P.M.), and general admission tastings (from 1:00 P.M. — 4:00 P.M.), craft beer lovers who are 21+ can sample over 100 craft beers from the finest breweries in the nation.

At last year's sold out Sabroso Craft Beer, Taco & Music Festival powered by Gringo Bandito at Doheny State Beach in Dana Point, CA, 8,500 attendees gathered under the California sunshine for an afternoon of complimentary craft beer tasting with over 40 of the best breweries from Southern California and beyond, gourmet street tacos and more. Lucha Libre style wrestlers competed throughout the day as the waves of the Pacific crashed behind their beachside ring, and professional eaters, including world champion Takeru Kobayashi, took to the stage before The Offspring's performance for the 7th Annual Gringo Bandito Chronic Tacos Challenge. While runner-up Molly Schuyller, European champion Jesse Pynnönen, and others devoured tacos at an astonishing pace, Kobayashi stole the show by downing 159 tacos in 10 minutes — shattering his own 2015 record of 144 tacos.

The festival producers encourage attendees to drink responsibly.

About Gringo Bandito

Gringo Bandito was started in 2004 by Dexter Holland, singer for the multi-platinum punk rock band The Offspring, more as a hobby than a business. "I just thought it would be cool to have a hot sauce," says Holland. "I gave away the first batch as Christmas presents to my friends." The response to this new hot sauce was so overwhelming that Holland decided to put it out commercially. Sales were modest at first, and the hot sauce was distributed only in Holland's native Southern California. "It has always been a DIY operation for sure," Holland says. "It started small but it has just kept on growing." After several years and over a million bottles later, Gringo Bandito hot sauce has garnered a worldwide audience and a loyal following. "We're not the most well-known hot sauce out there," says Holland, "but once people try it, they're hooked." Gringo Bandito is now sold in Australia, Japan, Canada, Finland, Switzerland, UK, Poland, Germany, Belgium, Hungary and coast to coast in the US and can be found in the top 10 on's highest customer rated hot sauces amongst 5000+ other products.
