San Francisco Beer Week | Can’t-Miss Events February 5-10

San Francisco Beer Week | Can’t-Miss Events February 5-10

How are y’all doing? I am hoping San Francisco Beer Week (SFBW) hasn’t been too rough: We still have six days to go! SFBW is an amazing craft brewer’s guild event marathon with multiple events all over the greater San Francisco Bay area. The five guilds (San Francisco, East Bay, Silicon Valley, Coast and North Bay) gather together for tap takeovers, collaboration releases, food pairing events and many other types of fun times.

Working in the industry, there are two moods when you see SFBW approaching: Either you are hella pumped or you start chugging coconut water! Below are some can’t-miss events for the rest of the week. Get pumped and honestly—I suggest stocking up on coconut water.

Tuesday, February 5

Region: San Francisco

Dessert Night with Socola Chocolatier and Humphry Slocombe – Barebottle has created two tasty dessert inspired beers and they are paired with ice cream and truffles. How delicious does that flight sound?

Why it’s a can’t-miss: It’s not every day that you get beer, chocolate AND ice cream; it’s also a unique pairing event.

Details: 6 – 8 p.m. at BAREBOTTLE BREWING COMPANY: 1525 Cortland Ave San Francisco, CA 94110. Cost is TBD.

Oysterfest 2019Magnolia Haight is at it again with their annual Oysterfest, releasing their Oysterhead Stout and pairing it with the oysters in a lot of different ways.

Why it’s a can’t miss: I love when breweries have food pairing events, especially when it is beer and oysters.

Details: 11 a.m. – All Day at MAGNOLIA BREWING 1398 Haight Street San Francisco, CA. Cost is pay-as-you-go.

Wednesday, February 6

Region: San Francisco

LadyFace Brewing & Osteria BellaChloe Terry from Lady Face will be talking women and beer (SUCH an important topic) and what better way to talk shop than with beer tasting and food pairings? 

Why this is a can’t miss: Women in the craft beer industry is a topic worth discussing, even if you aren’t a brewer, to see other perspectives on the matter.

Details: 5 p.m. – until close at OSTERIA BELLA 3848 Geary Boulevard San Francisco, CA. Cost is pay-as-you-go.

Meet the Malt: Feldblume: Admiral Malting brings us Feldblume, an “unusual malt with its delicate but complex Vienna-meets-pale-ale-malt qualities” – their words. They also have different beers on draft that were made with Feldblume.

Why it’s a can’t miss: It’s a great educational experience and one of many talks about malt during SFBW.

Santa Cruz Brew Cruz ~ Tiki Tour Tiki drinks and tiki-inspired beers are fun, but what if I told you takign a bus would be playing it safe? Guests get to meet up for a drink and then board the train to visit local breweries to sample their beverages.

Why it’s a can’t miss: I’ve been on other bus beer tours and they are always a blast! Plus, I’m a sucker for being safe while drinking (as you should be as well).

Details: 5 – 9 p.m. at HULA’S ISLAND GRILL AND TIKI ROOM 221 Cathcart Street Santa Cruz, CA. Cost is $25 for the bus ride but you pay for your own drinks at the stops. You can purchase tickets by following the link above.

Bay Area Beer Tap Takeover: Whole Foods in Santa Clara will be hosting Barebottle and Fieldworking Brewing and sampling their brews. There will also be bites as well.
