For a number of reasons, it has always been the plan from the beginning for Jordan and Charlie to switch up the Beerwalk destinations. Jordan says, “We want to showcase the various communities throughout San Jose and the South Bay, and what better way of connecting businesses and residents and bringing people together than through the opportunity of trying good beer?”

Following the first two successful Beerwalks that took place in San Jose’s Japantown earlier this year in February and April, the decision to select downtown Campbell as the next featured destination was relatively straightforward once the Downtown Campbell Business Association let it be known of their support for a Beerwalk and that August was a good month for one. Plus, they already have been hosting their popular and ongoing Wine Walks, providing a level of built-in familiarity and infrastructure.

Of particular note is the support and participation of the South Bay brewing community. There will be two guided tours of the Campbell Brewing Company by brewmaster Jim Turturici at 3 p.m. and 5 p.m.

For all the information about the Campbell Beerwalk, including complete ticket information, go to the SJ Beerwalk website. Like the SJ Beerwalk Facebook page for the latest updates.

Look for future Beerwalks to take place every two months and either Willow Glen or The Alameda to serve as the next possible Beerwalk destination.
