A message from  LAX Coastal Area Chamber of Commerce’s President Christina Davis.

For the second year in a row, the LAX Coastal Area Chamber of Commerce in conjunction with Tony Palermo, Owner of Tony P’s Dockside Grill, and Hornblower Cruises & Events  with promotional partners the LAX Coastal Young Professionals and Venice Paparazzi successfully pulled off the highly anticipated Cruise ‘n’ Brews 2014 on Saturday, August 9 from 12-4PM on the Hornblower Cruises & Events ‘Entertainer’, a 550-passenger yacht. Guests brought with them general excitement and a passion for tasting craft beer, making the stroll through Marina del Rey Harbor festive and picturesque.

Pleased with the turnout and overall event atmosphere, Christina Davis, President/CEO of the LAX Coastal Chamber remarked “this year’s event was a success for many reasons. From the short amount of time it took to check in our guests to the addition of the Venice Paparazzi photo booth and live DJ, guests had more ways to engage with each other. Of course we are always searching for ways to improve the event and already have begun brainstorming ways of improving the event for next year.”

For only $55 attendees accessed beer from as many breweries as they desired and were encouraged to meet each other and even compare notes about the many beers they tasted.
