2017 Brewery List to be announced soon!
The SF Beer Week Opening Gala is the largest, most anticipated, and prestigious annual gathering of the Northern California craft beer community. It’s the kick off party for SF Beer Week, commencing a nine-day marathon of beer dinners, tastings, tap takeovers and educational events that occur all over the Bay Area.
This massive kick-off to SF Beer Week takes place on Friday, February 10, from 6-10:30pm** at the Pier 48 in San Francisco (5pm for VIP). Over 120 breweries are expected from throughout Northern California -- especially Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Solano and Sonoma counties -- serving the most creative and compelling beers the region has to offer.
Attendees will receive a commemorative glass and enjoy unlimited samples of new, rare and classic beers. Expect mouth-puckering sours alongside subtle funk, hop bombs both cloudy and clear, brawny barrel-aged brews, and a wide range of beer styles traditional and experimental -- all the creativity and innovation that had made Northern California one of the best beer producing regions in the world.
In addition to great beer, some of the best local food vendors in the Bay Area will be on site, serving up delicious options for purchase. (And rest assured, bathrooms will be plentiful!)
The Gala is one of the most memorable beer events of the year. Get your tickets now. NO TICKETS AT THE DOOR.
