things to to

Tyanne Penado is looking forward to Red, White & Brew.
He’s part of the Manteca-owned Black Orchid Brewery, an up and coming craft beer.
“We’ve done festivals throughout San Joaquin and Stanislaus counties,” Penado said. “This will be our first in Manteca.”
He along with Henry Penado, Joffre Roberts III, Joffre Roberts Jr. and Melinda Roberts are all part of the family business. Assistant brewer Russell Haynes is also part of this business endeavor – the group is currently in process of trying to open Orchid Brewery in Manteca.
“We’ve been craft brewing for years,” Penado added.
Red, White & Brew will take place on Saturday, Sept. 28, from noon to 4 p.m. at Manteca’s Promenade Shops at Orchard Valley, Union Road and the 120 Bypass.
This fifth annual wine and beerfest is presented by the San Joaquin Valley Brewfest Committee, with proceeds benefiting Give Every Child a Chance.
The local non-profit tutoring program services most of south San Joaquin County. Red, White & Brew is one of the biggest fundraisers for GECAC, according to Special Events Coordinator Samantha Worthington.
“We will feature several breweries and wineries from around the Central Valley and beyond. There will also be a variety of food and merchandise vendors (along) with games, music and more,” she said.
Black Orchid Brewery along with Delicato Family Vineyards will join the likes of Last Call Brewing (Oakdale), Indigeny Reserve (Sonora), Tioga-Sequoia (Fresno), Track 7 (Sacramento), Seismic Brewing Company (Santa Rosa), Drakes Brewery (San Leandro), Altamont Beer Works (Livermore), Mad River Brewing (Humboldt County), Eight Bridges Brewery (Livermore), Renegade Brewing (Denver), Truly Hard Selzer, Weibel Winery, Klinker Brick Winery, and more.
For those looking to get their grub on, Red, White & Brew will have a variety of food vendors – Taco Fiesta, The Rock Pizza Oven, Fagundes Catering, Nana Bear’s Mini Donuts and the Cajun Spot.
A deejay will help keep the event lively with music with games including Jumbo Jenga, beer pong, life size beer pong and the corn hole toss.
A photo booth along with other vendor booths – The California Mercantile, Julie Lackey, Keller Williams Realtor Padro Bautista, to name a few – and various sponsors (Leprino Foods, Golden Valley Federal Credit Union, Trueb & Becker Dental Group, Premier Community Credit Union), Port of Stockton, Black Oak Casino, Chicken Ranch Casino, Oak Valley Community Bank, San Joaquin County Irrigation District, United Rental, United Site Services and Valley Custom Carts) will also be part of Red, White & Brew.
