this is the stuff from SF Beer Week that made it home with me at the end of the night.
these are some upcoming festivals and events that we plan on attending.
Beer with food pairing dinners are a great way to learn a lot about beer in an evening. usually these events are structured in a way that will leave you happy and full. if you’ve never been to one of these events here’s some things you can expect.
it’s all a blur. at least it is now. 10 days of SF Beer Week came and went. keep in mind that SFBW is surrounded by Strong Beer Month. there are a few things that we learned in the 3rd year of this event: it’s impossible to get to everything, it’s easy to get tired, and everyone wants to be part of it. the new thing this year were lines. long ones. every single place and event that we attended was packed. it didn’t matter that it was Monday or Tuesday the world was out wanting to try beer.
The East Bay-based craft beer radio company, The Brewing Network, is back for its 2nd Annual Winter Brews Festival to jump-start the local craft beer appreciation season.
With more than 30 world class breweries on tap, visitors will enjoy unlimited tastings from breweries such as the 21st Amendment, Gordon Biersch, Lagunitas, Magnolia, and Triple Rock. This Winter Brews Festival promises to expose beer lovers, new and experienced, to a variety of tasty beers, as well as raise awareness and funding for two local non-pro? ts; the Coral Reef Alliance and BAD RAP (Bay Area Doglovers Responsible About Pit bulls).
you know that sometimes the only way to get that cool glass or plate is to appropriate it by appropriation. and while the five finger discount seems like a good idea 5 pints into the night there are better ways to acquire loot. like at the Rogue Ales Public House Presidents day(s) garage sale. okay, so we don’t they don’t really have a garage but they do have a sale.
you cannot go to every single event. don’t even try. by the time this happens there will be over 250. decide what you think is the most fun you can have and do that. you will look at the list with the idea of all of this sounds fun. but the reality is that time will be your limiting factor.
Stu Stuart has a bunch of trips planned that will take you to all over the country of Belgium. some of the trips are centered around a festival like Zythos or Essen Christmas Beer Festival.
Join us at 5PM on Monday February 1 for the release of Beer School the beer. it’s pouring at 21st Amendment on 563 2nd St (between Brannon and Bryant) in San Francisco.
because there isn’t anything happening before SF beer week you might be interested in this Sunday afternoon event being held at Ace’s located in the Tenderknob. join the regulars in choosing the best homemade Chili in their 4th annual event. and if the chili doesn’t fill you up there will be free BBQ to go with that.
