Bay Area Brew Fest
Hope you’ve caught a breather after SF Beer Week and Strong Beer Month
because this Saturday afternoon, March 3, is the Bay Area Brew Fest at Fort Mason. This is the third year for the San Francisco event which is hosted by Eat.Drink.Play, a West Coast group that’s tucked a lot of beer-related event experience under its belt.
Now that baseball season is over, we're going to need another reason to drink beer. Luckily, there's a big one this weekend (Nov. 13 and 14) at Fort Mason. Bay Area Brew Festival gathers dozens of domestic and international brewers under one roof and, for $50, you can try them all for three hours straight (1–4 p.m.). In addition to local favorites like Lagunitas, Speakeasy, and Big Daddy, look for a wide range of brews, from the traditional (Colt45, brewed with pride in Woodridge, Illinois by the Pabst Brewing Co.) to the European (Spaten from Munich) to the karmic (Lhasa from Tibet) to the downright experimental (MateVeza, a "naturally caffeinated yerba mate beer" from Ukiah).
