Save the Date: SF Beer Week 2015
Every year since the San Francisco Brewers Guild launched one of the country’s first Beer Weeks (2009), the celebrated Bay Area institution has upped the ante in curating standout Northern California craft beer events featuring the 19 premier Guild breweries and additional select Northern California-based breweries. Today, SF Beer Week has evolved into a top international destination presenting some of the world’s finest beers at 600 events hosted by renowned breweries, acclaimed restaurants, bars, and retailers. SF Beer Week 2015 runs from February 6 – 15, 2015 with official events spanning the greater San Francisco Bay Area from Santa Cruz to Santa Rosa. Mark your calendars as SF Beer Week 2015 pulls out all the stops with its most ambitious roster of events to date!
SF Beer Week 2015 kicks-off the 10 days of festivities with the Opening Gala taking place at the newly renovated Fort Mason Center Herbst Pavilion, on February 6, 2015, where more than 3,000 craft beer enthusiasts will unite for the ultimate tasting celebration. 80+ Northern California breweries will be onsite at the Gala spotlighting the remarkable quality and innovative spirit flourishing in one of the foremost craft beer regions in the country. SF Beer Week’s official events will be announced in early December 2014, but beer geeks surely can start to get revved up for a slew of special beer releases, beer festivals, meet-the-brewer opportunities, beer dinners, tastings, lectures and panel discussions, homebrewing demonstrations, and educational events. Once again, the San Francisco Brewers Guild will also release its very own collaboration beer at the Gala, which will subsequently be available at tons of events throughout SF Beer Week.
Northern California is the birthplace of craft brewing. Over the years, the region’s singular entrepreneurial vision and access to bountiful local resources have instilled Northern California breweries the opportunity to set the global standard for exceptional brewing. SF Beer Week now serves as a preeminent model for the 80+ Beer Weeks that take place in every corner of the United States. With hundreds of participating venues banding together to relish the history, artistry and tremendous flavor of the region’s craft beer, the San Francisco Brewers Guild is thrilled to commemorate all things local alongside the Bay Area’s top purveyors in the beverage/restaurant/retail industries.

About San Francisco Brewers Guild
The San Francisco Brewers Guild formed in 2004 as a non-profit 501 (c)(6) during a renaissance in American craft brewing. Our mission is to restore and preserve San Francisco’s brewing heritage and unite those who make local beer with those who love it. The Guild achieves this by educating the public about craft beer, organizing and hosting events such as SF Beer Week, Brews on the Bay and Meet the Brewers, advocating for the craft beer industry in city government, donating services and product to local charities, and partnering with artisan producers in the food, beverage, hospitality and agricultural industries.
