Getting Around

SF Travel

SF Travel is a one-stop shop for exploring the city of San Francisco and surrounding areas, and a great place to start planning. Check out SF Travel's Guide to Public Transportation, which includes info, links and transportation costs for many Bay Area and City services (BART, MUNI, Amtrak, etc.). Tips: For MUNI times and buses, go to 511.org or you can call 511.

When using BART -- a.k.a. the Bay Area Transit System -- you can't go wrong visiting the Beer by BART page, a fantastic resource for mapping out your craft beer stops.

If heading north for, ahem, a certain special beer release, or any of the many exciting events being planned up there, swing by our friends at Visit Santa Rosa for advance travel planning and scheduling your stay.

There are many tour companies serving the Bay Area, and one of our favorites is SF Adventure Travel, which is very active in the craft beer community. Do a search to find their special beer week tours once the schedule goes live.

Of course, we encourage having fun at SF Beer Week events throughout the Bay Area, but please be responsible and use public transit whenever possible. Here’s a list of transportation options to help get you around!

 A designated driver option for traveling throughout the Bay! Capitol Corridor trains run from Auburn/Sacramento all the way to San Jose, with convenient stops in Berkeley and Oakland. For travel between the East Bay and San Francisco, Capitol Corridor connects to BART at the Richmond and Oakland Coliseum stations, and there's a dedicated Capitol Corridor bus for travel between the Emeryville Station and the Transbay Temporary Terminal in downtown San Francisco. With free wi-fi, spacious seats, and a Cafe Car for refueling, plan your travels at capitolcorridor.org.
