San Francisco Brewer’s Guild: San Francisco was the locus of America’s craft brewery revival. Today, the breweries of San Francisco are part of a rich local culture of artisan food and beverages. Together, they produce a diverse array of beer that runs the gamut of style and flavors. Additionally, the San Francisco brewpubs serve an eclectic selection of beer-friendly food in lively pub environments.
Slow Food San Francisco: Slow food, founded in 1986, is an international organization whose aim is to protect the pleasures of the table from homogenization of modern fast food and life. Through a variety of initiatives, it promotes gastronomic culture, develops taste education, conserves agricultural biodiversity and protects traditional foods at risk of extinction. San Francisco is home to one of the oldest Slow Food groups in the United States.
