Next Friday, February 6, marks the kick-off of San Francisco Beer Week, a 10-day celebration of the Bay Area's delicious and diverse beer culture. There will be about 150 events happening around the city, beginning with the Bistro Double IPA Festival and the Toronado Barleywine Festival and capping off with Celebrator's Best of the West Beer Fest. In between there will be beer dinners, cheese and beer pairing events, meet the brewer evenings, homebrewing demos and a museum exhibit showcasing the history of Bay Area brewing. We're planning to head down for the festivities and can't wait to participate in what will hopefully become an annual event. For more info, including a full schedule of events, check out the SF Beer Week website.
