Santa Barbara Brewing Company will be open for all World Cup games.


Santa Barbara locals have the opportunity to take their 2014 World Cup experience to a whole new level.

Presidio Sports and Santa Barbara Brewing Company are running a World Cup contest much like the NCAA Basketball Tournament, where each participant fills out a bracket predicting the winners of each match. It’s free to play, and the champion will receive a pair of tickets to see Jurassic 5 at the Santa Barbara County Bowl.

Additional prizes include a $100 gift card to Brew Co., an official World Cup jersey, and, exclusively for the top female,  a gift package from Spa del Mar valued at $125.


The World Cup begins on Thursday, June 12, unleashing one of the world’s favorite sporting events. Thirty-two countries will be vying for the championship, including the United State and Mexico.

Santa Barbara Brewing Company and the Lounge will be open for all World Cup games, including those that begin at 9 a.m. The fun begins with a kickoff party in the Lounge during the first game of the tournament between host Brazil and Croatia at 12:30 p.m. on June 12.

The Jurassic 5 concert is scheduled for Sunday, July 13, the same day as the World Cup final. The tickets will be handed out during halftime of the championship game at the Brew Co., with the winner then headed to the Bowl after the game.

The contest uses ESPN’s platform, so participants can use their ESPN or Facebook profile to login and play.
