The Globe Theatre on Broadway Street in LA is hosting the city's first-ever Stranger Things-themed beer festival straight out of the Upside Down (aka the show's spooky parallel universe)! And it's coming one month before Halloween! If you’ve already binge-watched all three seasons on Netflix and you’re a big fan of beer and waffles, this event has your name all over it. With your ticket, you can enjoy over 4 hours of epic Stranger Things fandom.
There are three areas in the Upside Down Beer Festival. Check out the first area, an awesome arcade room where you can challenge your friends to beat the high scores. Who knows? You might even steal the Dig Dug throne from Mad Max. The main area is decked out in everything 80s themed (of course). Then, there are fun themed beer gardens and a super-spooky basement where everything looks like you're in the Upside Down. Can somebody look for Hopper while you're there?
If this sounds like your kind of jam, piece together your best 80s outfit and get ready to dance. We’re talking neon, big hair, white sneakers, and all. Throughout the event, Supernatural Boys and DJ Eddy Fresh will be spinning the ultimate nostalgic throwback tunes. Arrive at 1 p.m. to start the party.
Now it's time to head over to the next part of the event, the food. If you get hungry, there will be tons of amazing options to choose from. After all, what’s an Upside Down Beer Festival without a mouth-watering plate full of Eggo waffles?
Take a seat and get ready to eat your fill, the on-site Waffle Shop would even make Eleven proud. According to Rock Star Beer Festivals, the festival's menus will offer sandwiches made with Eggos instead of bread and other delicious eats like a mouth-watering mac and cheese bread bowl. There will also be over twenty different types of beer to choose from all based on Stranger Things themes, including the frothy Eggo Waffle Porter.
This fan-focused pop-up beer festival is a dream come true. If you're feeling the vibe, you can check out the event page here. Don't keep this curiosity door locked!
