SF Beer Week
All week long at locations across the greater Bay Area.
Northern California’s beer community will converge in San Francisco for an outstanding week full of special releases, sour beer nights, IPA fests and countless beer pairing dinners. There will be literally dozens of events consecutively happening during this very special hop filled weekend. Fine food and drink is crucial to SF culture and beer is no exception. Restaurants, Bars, Brewpubs, cafés and hell probably even the library will be offering events and specials that highlight quality brews for this very beer gathering presented to you by the San Francisco Brewers Guild.
Still having trouble grasping the magnitude? Check out the SF Beer Week schedule of events.
If you want my advice – scour through the event listings, plan your week, grab your friends, pack into a car, head to The City, and prepare yourself for a week long extravaganza that will expose you to more quality beers than you ever thought possible (also be prepared to pee more than you ever thought possible).
