Beaverstock 2014 at Castoro Cellars

This was our first year at Beaverstock and long story short, it was absolutely perfect!

Now we’ll get to the long story.

Beaverstock is a two day event (Saturday and Sunday) packed with exceptional live music, beer, wine, food, and so much more. We had a friend in from Phoenix, another from Auburn, CA., and Annie’s mom came up to all join in the fun with us.

The best way I can describe the vibe is a combination of hippy, backyard BBQ, relaxed, no worries and no hurries, music extravaganza. Day one, which is the day we went, the main stage line-up was Proxima Parada, Moonshiner Collective, Eric Bibb, The Band of Heathens, and Allen Stone. There was a second stage which they added for entertainment between acts on the main stage.

Day two, which we did not attend, had Jill Knight, Zongo All Stars, Sean Hayes, Hot Buttered Rum, and Los Lobos. The first band started at 1pm and music went until 9pm both days. I may be mistaken (but I’m hardly ever wrong) but there is not another event like this on the Central Coast.

On top of the music there was disc golf and corn hole (if you don’t know what that is Google it), art, yoga, a kid’s area, the AMAZING food court area, Castoro Cellars wine, and beer from Firestone Walker, Toro Creek, BarrelHouse, and Molly Pitcher.

This event seriously could not have been any better. As if all this weren’t enough, Beaverstock 2014 is a benefit for the Templeton Education Foundation. All this fun packed into a good cause…well played.

I was super stoked to be able to bring Sammy (our almost 2 year old son) to the event. He did great and to see how they made it kid friendly was beyond what I expected walking in. There really isn’t much more for me to say, check out the pictures in the slideshow below.

I will close with a thank you to Castoro Cellars and the Udsen family for an amazing day in the Paso Robles/Templeton wine country!
