About this event

Sign up for news and updates at DrinkBay.Beer for Brews on the Bay and San Francisco Brewer Weekend, landing in local taprooms the weekend before the fest.

BREWS ON THE BAY returns Saturday, October 22, aboard the S.S. Jeremiah O’Brien!

The return marks San Francisco brewers' 17th year aboard this remarkable, historic landmark from the World War II era. Like San Francisco, the O'Brien is resilient, surviving the massive fire at Pier 45 in 2020, which burned the huge pier warehouse alongside the ship to the ground, and keeping above water during the pandemic, when tourism and fundriasing took major hits.

Join us in supporting the O'Brien and bringing BREWS ON THE BAY back.

Sample super-fresh, locally crafted beer while soaking up the salty air, sunshine and spectacular views of the Golden Gate BridgeAlcatraz and the city and bay of San Francisco, at one of the most memorable and unique beer festivals in the world. 

SPACE IS EXTREMELY LIMITED. The event is on the ship, which has a strictly enforced capped capacity to ensure safety and ease of movement. Don't wait to get tickets.

San Francisco craft brewers love attending this event, and will be serving UNLIMITED pours of their latest and greatest IPAs, session beers, seasonal favs, and more, with dozens of locally brewed selections flowing. Local vendors will provide popular food options for purchase — or consider upgrading to a VIP FUNDRAISER ticket.
