Ales 'N' Rails Ugly Christmas Sweater Party And Beer Tasting

The San Diego Model Railroad Museum knows that lurking in the depths of many people’s closets is a colorful, abundantly adorned, cheesy, and downright hideous holiday sweater which, were it not for Ales 'n' Rails Ugly Christmas Sweater Party, would probably never see the light of day.

Beer lovers join us with your ugly Christmas sweater and hop aboard to combine some of your favorite things: Ales, Rails, and Ugly Christmas Sweaters Friday, December 15 from 6 to 9 p.m. and celebrate National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day!

This event is not simply an excuse to parade humiliatingly-unfashionable seasonal knitwear; it’s a light-hearted and enjoyable fundraising event with a serious aim to fund our unique exhibits, public programs, and the overall operations of our wonderful museum.

Enjoy unlimited tastings from local craft brews including Mike Hess Brewing, Pizza Port Brewing Company, Benchmark Brewing, and Rock Bottom Brewery La Jolla.

So, wear your sweater, torment your friends, assault their eyes, and join us for the most “hop-n-ing” event of the season.

One day, one nation, millions of ugly Christmas sweaters. It’s National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day: Will you wear one?

Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 at the door.

The event will include live music, food, raffles, a silent auction and of course an ugly sweater contest!

Dates and times of events are subject to change without notice. Always check the event organizer's website for the most updated schedule before attending.
