Suds on the High Seas: The Brews on the Bay Beer Festival


You can never have too much of a good thing, right? Like beer. That’s why you should make plans to attend the San Francisco Brewers Guild’s eighth annual ~BREWS ON THE BAY~ festival on Saturday September 10th, noon-5pm, on the deck of the S.S. Jeremiah O’Brien at Pier 45. Celebrate the creativity and talent behind San Francisco’s craft breweries, and taste from over 50 great beers while discussing each beer’s merits with the brewmasters and cicerones on hand.

With unlimited eight-ounce pours, choose wisely from amongst the 50+ beers, all of which can call SF their hometown. They’ll range from traditional, classic beer styles to cask-conditioned, barrel-aged, sour, and imperial craft styles, and will include some special and limited releases from the eight participating breweries—21st Amendment, Anchor Brewing Co., Beach Chalet, Gordon Biersch, Magnolia, Social Kitchen & Brewery, Speakeasy Ales & Lagers, and ThirstyBear Brewing Co.

The S.S. Jeremiah O’Brien is a historical landmark from the World War II-era Merchant Marine, and the event is a fundraiser for the National Liberty Ship Memorial. Admission includes access to the ship, its crew, and its gorg views of the bay, plus live music. Several Off the Grid food trucks will be onsite to sell innovative, sustainable food. Tickets are $45, and are available only by advance online sales.
