The 5th Annual SaltDog Classic will be held on Sunday, Oct. 20 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Encinitas Community Park. The community festival will feature a lineup of talented musicians including Taken By Canadians, Shane Hall, Creature and the Woods, and more, as well as over 10 San Diego craft breweries, local vendors, and plenty of outdoor fun. Participating breweries include Culture Brewing Co., Growler Hour, Mason Ale Works, and Pizza Port Brewing Co., among others. “We are honored to provide such an eclectic and tastefully curated list of craft brewers and would like to give a howl out to our friends, Chris and Matt with Growler Hour, for putting this team of craft brew enthusiasts together!” said event founder Elan Saltman.

The SaltDog Classic also serves as a fundraiser for local nonprofits. This year’s silent auction and live raffle will benefit Rancho Coastal Humane Society. Past beneficiaries include Rollin’ From the Heart, Operation Amped, and WILDCOAST. For more information and tickets go to
