About 2 month(s) ago by Hawthorn Suites by Wyndham Oakland/Alameda
2nd Annual Battlestar Classic BeerFest & Cornhole Tournament

When: Saturday, August 26, 10 AM - 5 PM

 

Where: USS Hornet - Sea, Air and Space Museum; 707 W Hornet Ave, Pier 3, Alameda

 

What: The CA Beer Society, Yelp, and the USS Hornet - Sea, Air and Space Museum are excited to announce the continuation of what will hopefully become an Alameda tradition. The 2nd Battlestar Classic Cornhole & Beer Festival will benefit the museum and allow participants to take part in the hilariously named game, which involves tossing a bag of corn kernels into holes in sloped boards.

 

In this ultimate tailgating experience, 64 teams consisting of players from all levels, from beginner to advanced, will compete with one another upon the Flight Deck of the Hornet. Champions will compete for the CA Beer Society Growler Trophies, with prizes also given out to second and third-place Cornhole- teams. The "King" and "Queen" of the contest will also name the Battlestar Classic Top Gun. As this event is the only one of its kind in the country, these positions and prizes are highly coveted!

 

Interested in competing? Players and teams register in advance online through the ticket site linked here. The registration fee supports the museum's restoration efforts and many programs, and members of all organizations would like to sincerely thank competitors.

 

 

 

Craft beer from local breweries will be offered, to be sipped while participants soak in the jaw-dropping skyline of San Francisco. As this is an all-ages event-activities will be offered for all members of the family, even the non-drinking ones. Food will be available for purchase, along with raffle tickets, whose sales benefit the museum and its mission.

 

A national and state historic landmark, the World War II-era aircraft carrier is also worth a visit in and of itself. Fortunately, tours are offered as part of the event. Find out about the ship's roles in aviation history and in the nation's defense during the World War. Also learn how it has expanded its mission to one that embraces space and science exploration. An important protagonist in the Apollo Program, the museum continues to link the past generations with the new, "inspiring them to meet the challenges they will face in the days to come."
