  1. Spread the Word: Share this event with your friends, family, and fellow craft beer enthusiasts. Encourage them to join us in this important cause and make a difference together.
  2. Dress Appropriately: Remember to wear comfortable clothing and closed-toe shoes suitable for beach clean-up activities. Don’t forget to apply sunscreen and stay hydrated!
  3. Have Fun: While the primary purpose of the event is to clean up the beach, it’s also an opportunity to meet like-minded individuals, make new friends, and enjoy a day at the beautiful La Jolla Shores.
  4. Post-clean-up Cheers: If you have the time, head over with team CBC to say cheers to a great beach clean-up in honor of World Oceans Day. Not only will Salty Crew Blonde Ale be on special at Shore Rider La Jolla, but Dough Momma’s will also be offering pizza by the slice that can be paired with your favorite brew.
