Whew! Another incredible ten days in the books. SF Beer Week 2016 was the biggest and best yet, thanks to an amazing community of beer lovers, breweries, bars, restaurants, stores and sponsors who participated. Your support and enthusiasm for SF Beer Week is simply astonishing. We can’t thank all of you enough. Cheers to another great week of craft beer camaraderie and beer filled memories.

This year’s schedule contained 893 listings, an 11% increase over 2015. Events took place at 288 locations all over the Bay Area, from Santa Cruz to Santa Rosa, and east over to Livermore. The Bay Area beer community is clearly thriving.

SF Beer Week may be over, but that doesn’t mean you have to wait for more great events. Many of the participating bars, breweries, and restaurants host special tappings, beer dinners, meet the brewer nights, and other festivities all year round. Follow them on social media or visit their websites to stay in touch.

Thank You Sponsors!

Finally, as presenting sponsor and organizer, the San Francisco Brewers Guild would like to profusely thank all of this year’s generous sponsors. Without their support SF Beer Week would not be possible. Thank you!
