Punk In Drublic Festival is a multi-city music and craft beer festival created by NOFX frontman Fat Mike, coining the name from the band’s legendary 1994 album of the same name. The festival has something for everybody, from amazing music, a variety of food, and complimentary craft beer tastings throughout the day. Although the band lineup varies from city to city, festival-goers can expect to see performances by NOFX, Bad Religion, The Interrupters, Mad Caddies, and a variety of additional bands.
Punk in Drublic is a festival that certainly distinguishes itself from other festivals. Four hours of craft beer tasting from over 100 breweries is included with admission. After 4pm, a variety of cocktails, beer and non-alcoholic drinks will be available to purchase. Beer enthusiasts and NOFX fans can look forward to tasting the Punk in Drublic Happy Lager, a collaboration between Fat Mike and craft beer pioneers Stone Brewing that is only available at the festival markets. Additionally, every date will be headlined by punk legends NOFX and Bad Religion. These two Los Angeles bands have been around since 1983 and 1980, respectively, and continue to put on impressive, lively, and all-around incredible performances.
Those who are interested in enjoying a day of craft beers and performances by punk and hardcore legends should be aware that the festival is 21+.
