San Francisco Brewers Guild

The San Francisco Brewers Guild formed in 2004 as a non-profit 501 (c)(6) during a renaissance in American craft brewing. Our mission is to restore and preserve San Francisco’s brewing heritage and unite those who make local beer with those who love it. The Guild achieves this by:


  • Educating the public about craft beer.
  • Organizing and hosting events such as SF Beer Week, Brews on the Bay and Meet the Brewers.
  • Advocating for the craft beer industry in city government.
  • Donating services and product to local charities.
  • Partnering with artisan producers in the food, beverage, hospitality and agricultural industries.
