Ready to soak up the salty air, sunshine and spectacular views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and San Francisco while enjoying local craft beer at one of the most memorable and unique festivals in the country?
BREWS ON THE BAY returns Saturday, Sept. 17, for its 13th year on the S.S. Jeremiah O’Brien, an historic World War II merchant marine ship docked at Pier 45 -- and this year, more San Francisco breweries will be participating than ever.
Produced by the San Francisco Brewers Guild, this event is one of the Bay Area's most intimate beer festivals -- one the brewers themselves look forward to.
See the BEER LIST.
"Imagine staring at sailboats floating past Alcatraz while tasting beer from dozens of San Francisco breweries, including both veteran and newcomers to the craft beer market. To drink locally hand-crafted ales and lagers aboard an historic American ship, floating on one of the most famous bays in the world… who the hell wouldn’t want to do that?" — David "Zambo" Zamborski, Director of Brewing, Speakeasy Ales & Lagers
