This is a big deal that’s kind of difficult to describe even though it’s now in its ninth year. Organizers say SF Beer Week is a grassroots collection of over seven hundred events organized and hosted by over two hundred different breweries, restaurants, bars, and retail stores throughout San Francisco and the region. These curated events celebrate craft beer and the craft beer community. No one event, venue, or kind of beer defines it.
Events are hosted at a wide range of locations, and may cater to various beer tastes (hoppy, sweet and malty, sour, aged, cask-conditioned), food tastes (cheese pairings, dessert pairings, multi-course dinners), and entertainment interests (movies, games, sporting events).
It’s complicated, but oh so rewarding. Study the schedule – you can sort by the type of event you want to attend – and start making your plans today!
