Ye Scallywag, Punk Rock and Beer in San Diego!

Costume SuperCentre Canada

This past Saturday 91X hosted Ye Scallywag Festival,  and it was by far one of the best I’ve been to in some time.  I arrived at the event, held at image5the Waterfront Park just before noon and I couldn’t believe how big it was.

Tents of different beer, wine, and cider houses lined the park as far as the eye could see and at the end of it all was the stage where the magic was going to happen.

The first band to grace the stage was the Bombpops and they were fantastic! After listening to their set, I stopped by some places that were unfamiliar to me (and some that were).

First stop, Revolt Wine. Yes, I said wine. Their wines are produced in Napa and they operate out of San Diego. Be advised, they don’t have tasting rooms. Instead, they travel around the country, throwing events and partnering with the music community. I was pleasantly surprised with how nice their wine was. A great drink on such a hot day.  Special thanks to the owner, Heather, for chatting with me!

Next stop, STOK cold brew coffee. I know, it isn’t an alcoholic beverage, but hey, we all need some caffeine too!  I had the vanilla and although it wasn’t as strong as I would have liked, the flavors were quite good. And you can buy them at most grocery stores!

After that, I had to get some cider, so I decided to try 2Towns Ciderhouse. man, was this good cider!  I tried their rhubarb cider and it was crisp and not too sweet, which is just the way I like it!  They are from Portland and I found hat San Diego county alone is their 3rd highest selling location! Oregon first and Washington second.  That speaks volumes about their product!

Finally, after going to other great breweries, I decided to end my drinking with some chocolate. SoRich Chocolates is a local artisan chocolate company that is known for pairing chocolate with craft beer and wine. I tried their pumpkin truffle filling AND their cucumber melon. I knew the pumpkin would be good but wasn’t too sure about the cucumber melon. After tasting it, it took all of my willpower not to push Toni, the confectioner, out of the way and continue to stuff my face!

There were so many great craft beers to choose from and so little time to hit them all. From Coronado Brewery to Sierra Nevada, beer fans had their pick of some fantastic beverages!

I grabbed a water and made my way back to the stage, where I spent the rest of the day.

fullsizerender1Reel Big Fish was announced and they came out to (and played) “The Final Countdown,” which if you have seen them in concert before, you knew was coming. They sped through a couple covers by Offspring, Mighty Mighty Bosstones, and of course, some of their big hits.

Booze lines ended at around 3pm, so that meant when Against Me! Came on the stage, the crowd was much larger. And tipsy. They had a great set and barely spoke, so you got more music.

Ah, Goldfinger. Always a fun band to watch perform. Lead singer John Feldmann walked out onto stage to “Let is Go.” I kid you not. MxPx’s Mike Herrera and Rancid’s Brandon Steineckert joined him and they played some of the classics like “Here in Your Bedroom” and “Superman”. Although there were some technical difficulties in the beginning, they ended on a high note!

Finally, it was time for the last two bands. You knew this crowd came to see them and they did not disappoint. Bad Religion came on stage and if you have seen them in the past, nothing has changed… except for their age. The mosh pits were getting bigger and bigger as the crowd grew larger and larger. “Sorrow” started to play and the crowd went wild!  It was amazing!

NOFX!!!!  They played a little less and made more inappropriate jokes about about themselves and each other. But that did not take away from their performance. They played some new songs and I was so glad they did. They were definitely a hit with the crowd. The only downside to their set was that the crowd was super rowdy and I got slammed into the fence around the sound stage. But I expected a couple bruises to be had by the end of the night.

Aside from the occasional idiot drunk and getting slammed into the sound booth by wannabe be moshers… I had a blast!  This festival was very nostalgic for me as I listened to a lot of this in middle school and high school and honestly, I didn’t want the night to end.

I can’t wait for the next Ye Scallywag Festival!
