SAN DIEGO, CA (March 7, 2023) - Pucks & Pints, one of the most anticipated charity sports and beer events held in San Diego is back for a fifth year! The festivities kick off on April 8th, 2023, at Pechanga Arena San Diego. This epic hockey-focused day includes a Brewers’ Hockey Game, Beer and BBQ festival at Modern Times featuring Phil’s BBQ and local craft beers, and entrance to the San Diego Gulls vs. Calgary Wranglers hockey game.
“Pucks & Pints originated with colleagues in the brewing industry from Societe Brewing, Stone Brewing, and Thorn Brewing, all long-time hockey players, combining their passion for craft brewing and hockey to provide charitable good.” Todd Webster from Thorn Brewing explains. “What has transpired with the event's growth in a short time is amazing. This year marks our 5th Pucks & Pints event, and with our new partnership with Modern Times Brewing, the excitement and energy has grown to an entirely new level,” Webster continues. “The brewing community and our sponsors continue to rally to elevate the celebration of hockey, craft beer, and charity, with even more brewery involvement, delicious food donated by Phil's BBQ, and exciting action from the San Diego Gulls. All of this effort culminates in raising awareness and supporting our worthy charities that are so critical to the communities of San Diego.”
All of the proceeds from the event support four local charities, Emilio Nares Foundation, Boys & Girls Clubs of San Diego, ResQue Ranch, and the San Diego Brewers Guild.
"As a local hockey player and a long-time Craft Beer professional/enthusiast, I couldn't be more excited about our involvement in this event.” Justin Brunda from Modern Times states. “With our Modern Times Lomaland taproom being across the street from Pechanga Arena, we thought it was a great opportunity to share some of our resources and space, support our local community and share in this effort with our San Diego Beer brothers and sisters."
Tickets for Pucks & Pints are only $60 and include the brewers’ hockey game, BBQ and beer at Modern Times on Kurtz St, and the Gulls vs. Calgary Wranglers hockey game.
