A killer celebration of craft beer is heading to Pier 48 on Saturday, June 3, when the San Francisco Brewers Guild partners with Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. to tap hundreds of amazing beers — mostly from independent local and regional breweries — for Beer Camp On Tour.

This San Francisco installment of the popular Beer Camp festival series is just one of eight being thrown across the country this year, most in collaboration with local brewers’ guilds. Sierra Nevada — one of the most influential forefathers of the craft beer movement and itself still 100% family owned — is pouring loads of passion and resources into making all eight festivals tremendous celebrations of brewer creativity and the craft brewing spirit. You will not want to miss this event.

The bulk of brewery participants will hail from Northern California, but we’re also honored to be hosting a handful of independent breweries from all across the globe, each a special partner for Sierra’s Beer Camp Collaboration Release this year:

Ayinger Brewery (Germany) ft. Dunkle [sic] Weisse collaboration

Boneyard Beer (Bend, Oregon) ft. West Coast Style DIPA collaboration

Garage Project Brewery (New Zealand) ft. Campout Porter collaboration

Kiuchi Brewery (Japan) ft. White IPA with Yuzu collaboration

Mikkeller Brewery (Denmark, by way of California) ft. Thai-Style Iced Tea collaboration

Saint Arnold Brewing (Houston, Texas) ft. Dry Hopped Berlinner Weisse collaboration

These breweries will be on hand at Pier 48, pouring and talking about their beers, a rare opportunity indeed.

Six additional breweries are part of the 2017 Beer Camp 12-pack (the release coincides with festival) and their collaborations with Sierra Nevada will also be pouring at the event:

Avery Brewing (Boulder, Colo.) ft. Dry Hopped Barleywine Style Ale collaboration

The Bruery (Placentia, Cali.) ft. Raspberry Sundae collaboration

Duvel Moortgat (Belgium) ft. Hoppy Belgian Style Golden collaboration

Fuller’s Brewery (United Kingdom) ft. Atlantic Vintage Ale collaboration

Surly Brewing (Minneapolis, Minn.) ft. collaboration

Tree House Brewing (Monson, Mass.) ft. East Meets West IPA collaboration
