Your family recently planned a trip to Yosemite National Park and you realize that your team has a game while you are on vacation? Have no fear, South Gate Brewing Company has the Sunday Ticket!
South Gate Brewing Company, established in 2013, is located at the southern entrance to Yosemite in Oakhurst. This is a bit of a drive if your family is staying in Yosemite Valley, but we promise that you will not be disapointed with their award-winning craft beer, delicious food and large screen televisions. There’s nothing like a hot pizza to complement your pint on game day and SGBC offers delicious, artisanal brick oven pizza. If pizza isn’t your thing, don’t worry, they have a wide selection on their menu.
As far as their beer goes, it can be described with one word; AMAZING! They have an extremely popular, crisp, refreshing, golden ale called Gold Diggin’ Blond. They also won a gold medal in the Ninth Annual San Diego International Beer Festival for their Oaktown Brown. This English style brown ale is made with pecans, chocolate malts and British English East Kent Golding hops. The distinct brown sugar and pecan in the nose and on the palate are reminiscent of pecan pie. You can learn more about these beers, along with the many other varietals they offer, here: southgatebrewco.com/the-tap.
If you have yet to make hotel reservations, Oakhurst is a great town to post up during your getaway. In addition to the local brewery, there are many advantages to staying in this mountain community, located in the center of California. If you are traveling from the south, you’ll pass right through this small town. There are many reasonably priced hotels and restaurants in the area and the gate to Yosemite is only 14 miles away. We also suggest that you visit nearby Bass Lake.
If you are a football fan, you already know what the Sunday Ticket is. For those that may not know, the NFL Sunday Ticket is an out-of-market sports package that broadcasts NFL regular season games unavailable on local affiliates. Basically, we assure you that your game will be available to watch if you visit South Gate Brewing Company on a game day.
