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. The event will take place on Friday, January 22, from 6-10pm, at the Pier 35 in San Francisco. It will feature 100+ breweries from Northern California, particularly Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Solano and Sonoma counties, and will serve some of the most creative and compelling beers the region has to offer (participating breweries TBA). Attendees will receive a commemorative glass and enjoy unlimited 4-oz samples of new, rare and classic beers. Expect mouth-puckering sour beers, hop bombs, barrel-aged brews, and a wide range of other beers that make Northern California one of the best beer producing regions in the world. In addition to great beer, we’ll also be featuring some of the best local food you can find in the Bay Area, from Whole Foods, Rosamunde Sausage Grill, Bacon Bacon and more (TBA), each serving up delicious options for purchase. The SF Beer Week Opening Gala will SELL OUT, so don’t hesitate to secure your tickets. It will be one of the most memorable beer events of the year. SF Beer Week and the Opening Gala is presented by the San Francisco Brewers Guild.
