Description

The SF Beer Week Opening Gala is the largest, most anticipated, and prestigious annual gathering of the Northern California craft beer community.

It’s the kick off party for SF Beer Week, commencing a multi-day marathon of beer dinners, tastings, tap takeovers and educational events that occur all over the Bay Area.

This community-centric gathering is ground zero for the region's craft beer scene. Breweries from throughout Greater Bay Area will be converging in San Francisco to serve you the most creative and compelling beers the region has to offer.

Attendees receive a commemorative glass and enjoy unlimited samples of new, rare and classic beers. Expect mouth-puckering sours alongside subtle funk, hop bombs both cloudy and clear, brawny barrel-aged brews, and a wide range of beer styles traditional and experimental -- all the creativity and innovation that has made Northern California one of the best beer producing regions in the world.

In addition to great beer, some of the best local food vendors in the Bay Area will be on site, serving up delicious options for purchase.

Plus we have some really special activities coming to the Gala this year... stay tuned for announcements. Follow us on Twitter or Facebook to get the latest Opening Gala news and SF Beer Week updates.

Check out SF Beer Week Hotel Packages on our Travel page, from our friends at HILTON and Stanford Court. And thanks to all our sponsors who help make SF Beer Week possible.

FAQs

What's the refund policy?
The event is RAIN or SHINE and all ticket sales are final; there are no refunds.

Is it ok if the name on my ticket doesn't match the person who attends?
Yes, IDs are checked for age verification, not for the name on the ticket. (Note: you can also transfer your tickets into someone else's name via your Eventbrite account.)

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
We strongly encourage bringing a printed ticket for faster check-in.

Why is there no designated driver option available?
Non-alcohol ticket options are always subject to significant abuse, unfortunately, and at an event this size, it is impossible to police these options without outstripping resources and greatly impacting the event's viability. As a result, only the one ticket type can be offered.

Can I bring outside food into this event?
Unfortunately, no, you cannot bring food in. We do have food vendors who will have food for sale available.

What can you tell me about the beer being served?
As a kick-off to SF Beer Week, brewers will be rolling out many new, rare, specialty and collaboraiton releases for the Gala. Well over 300 beers are expected to be tapped, with over 120 breweries pouring. There will be plenty of great beer flowing throughout the night.

Will Pliny the Younger be served?
Yes. Our friends at Russian River will be bringing Younger from Santa Rosa for the Gala!
