If you love beer and baseball, Padres Beerfest is definitely a must. This pregame happy hour gathers thousands of fans at Petco Park for beer tasting. You can feast on delectable beer specials, hang out with like-minded folks, enjoy live music, and end the night with the finest game by the San Diego Padres baseball team. The festival gathers thousands of people together, including baseball fans and regular partygoers.

Beer Selection & Entertainment

The main highlight of the event is definitely the beer selection from the best local breweries and distilleries. Walk around the venue and treat your taste buds to a delicious brew from Karl Strauss, AleSmith, Four Corners, Ballast Point, and more. Musicians from the area will be performing on the park's stage, while you enjoy the $5 beer specials. The drinks can get more expensive, up to $18.

Baseball Game and Beerfest Schedule

The San Diego Padres baseball season stretches for nearly half a year. The games are typically scheduled for Fridays, mostly once a month, between April and September. This year's matches take place on April 26th, June 7th, August 2nd, and September 6th. You'll have a chance to see the San Diego Padres in a heated battle against the Philadelphia Phillies, Colorado Rockies, Arizona Diamondbacks, and SF Giants. The games begin at 6:40 pm, but the pre-game party kicks off several hours before that, at 4:30 pm, and ends with the first pitch of the night.


The festival takes place at Gallagher Square in the Park at the Park, just north of Petco Park. You can easily reach the event grounds by catching a bus, because Petco Park is closely located to several bus stops. Consider also hopping on a trolley and getting off at the 12th Street & Imperial stop. Another option is to take a Lyft or use another taxi service.

Tickets & Admission

A great thing about the festival is that you don't have to buy a separate ticket for the Beerfest, as it's already included in the baseball game admission. The cost of the tickets ranges from $27 to $165 and varies depending on the game.
