Read to soak up the salty air, sunshine and spectacular views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and San Francisco while enjoying local craft beer at one of the most memorable and unique festivals in the country?
BREWS ON THE BAY returns Saturday, Sept. 16, for its 14th year on the S.S. Jeremiah O’Brien, an historic World War II merchant marine ship docked at Pier 45 -- and this year, more San Francisco breweries will be participating than ever.
Produced by the San Francisco Brewers Guild, this event is one of the Bay Area's most intimate beer festivals -- one the brewers themselves look forward to. 
Local brewers will be out in force, serving unlimited pours of their latest and greatest IPAs, farmhouse ales, session beers, barrel-aged sours, imperial stouts, and many other beer styles, with over 70 beers set to flow.

This is our 14th year aboard the S.S. Jeremiah O’Brien, an historic landmark from the World War II Merchant Marine era ship, and appropriately, a portion of festival proceeds benefits the National Liberty Ship Memorial. This 2017 installment of Brews on the Bay will be our biggest and best yet, so we hope you can join us!
