Each year Slater’s 50/50 puts on a Brew Fest that brings together craft breweries and hosts them along with some of their fantastic food. Burgers and beer can’t get much better than that; but Slater’s doesn’t just make burgers they design delicious delicacies, with their signature 50% beef & 50% bacon patties they have no end to their creativity. Slater’s not only makes food they also have a great beer selection that caters to craft brews and popular domestics as well. Their Brew Fest is in a sense an homage to the breweries and community that have kept this place lively.

This years brew fest hosted some of the heavyweights in craft beer that came with styles like double IPA’s, porters & stouts, red ales, and sours. Many local breweries participated like Bootleggers, Rough Draft, Ballast Point, The Dudes’ Brewing Co., Figueroa Mountain, etc. This years fest also brought a brewery from Mexico, “Ensenada Brewing Company.” They brought their delicious artisanal brew, The Horchata Obscura. With such a brewery line-up and sample burgers flowing around the site, this event leaves the impression that Slater’s 50/50 Backyard Brew Fest is an event you cannot pass up.

The food Slater’s 50/50 puts out is no joke. They pack so much flavor and creativity that its difficult to have just one favorite. Slater’s also has a killer appetizer menu with items like mac & cheese, greens and sides that will leave you wanting to pile on the goodies. Every now and then a place comes along and sets the bar. Slater’s 50/50 happens to be one place that has put so much craft in their food and  beer that the bar they set is one to be met with high standards.
