Celebrate a New Year with the Biggest Toast of All

The opening toast at the SF Beer Week Opening Gala  (Feb. 9) is as much an annual tradition as the Gala itself. Each year, Jay Brooks, co-founder of SF Beer Week and nationally recognized craft beer writer and historian (Brookston Beer Bulletin), raises a glass to kick off this event and all the SF Beer Week festivities. 

This humble gathering first held years ago has become the must-attend industry event, with brewers and brewery owners hob-knobbing and pouring their best releases. 

As we celebrate a new year, it seems there’s never been a more important time to unite as a community. The past year has brought trials and tribulations unlike any before, both personally and broadly speaking, but there has been one constant — the camaraderie of the craft beer industry.

We are ready to toast a new year, and we would love to have you join us for our biggest toast of all. Join over 100 local and regional craft breweries, industry friends and fellow craft beer lovers for this region’s most important craft beer event of the year. Get your Opening Gala tickets now.
