Happy New Year, everyone; I have a feeling this is going to be a fun, beer-filled year. I would like to tell you about an upcoming craft beer event that will be held January 30, 2016. Laughs By Volume, presented by PINT Magazine will present a new twist on your typical local craft beer festival by including comedy from local comedians. Included in the price of admission is a souvenir PINT glass, three hours of unlimited tastings of at least 20 different brews, six comedy acts and an amateur comedy contest with a cash prize. So, if you get funnier the more you drink, you might want to enter the contest.
As far as the breweries represented, at this time they will have Santa Monica Brew Works, Absolution Brewing, The Good Beer Company, Hand-Brewed Beer, Fireman’s Brew, The Bruery, The Great Beer Company, Four Sons Brewing, Kinetic Brewing Company, Congregation Ale House and Pacific Plate Brewing.
Comedians scheduled to appear include Evan Wecksell, Sammy Obeid, Jason Love, Atsuko Okatsuka, Jonesy and Stevie Mack. These guys have been on everything from MTV to David Letterman so it should be pretty fun.
This event will be held over the course of three sessions on Saturday, January 30. The three-hour sessions will run from 1:00-4:00 PM, 5:00-8:00 PM and 9:00 until midnight for the final show. Something else a little different is that there will be assigned seating as well as standing room tickets; this means that each session will be limited to no more than 200 people. Tickets purchased online start at $27.50 for Standing Room Only (SRO) tickets and are $32.50 and $35.00 for assigned seats. As usual, I have a Discount Code for you, but it is only good for the assigned seating; however, you save 15% so it makes it a great deal.
Since there are three sessions and you have to choose which one you will attend, there are three Coupon Codes:
1:00 Show – CBG1PM
5:00 Show – CBG5PM
9:00 Show – CBG9PM
While I am not entirely sure how much food will be made available, I do know that everyone that purchases an online ticket for a seated spot will also receive a voucher for either a free hot dog or cheese nachos. The food vouchers are not available to standing room ticket purchasers and are not available when purchasing tickets at the door. Everyone attending Laughs By Volume will receive a gift bag with products, discounts and special offers from all the participating sponsors which is valued at over $100! There are limited Designated Driver tickets available at $10.00 each.
You can buy your tickets online at Eventbrite and get more details and updates by following their Facebook page.
Laughs By Volume will be held at LA Mother, located at 1627 N. Gower Street in Hollywood. This sounds like an interesting twist on craft beer events; I look forward to attending and I hope to see you there. For those wondering, I will be at the 1:00 show for sure. Cheers!
