Slow Food San Francisco and the San Francisco Brewers Guild present Slow Beer, a celebration of local artisan beer and food. Over 25 handcrafted beers from members of the San Francisco Brewer’s Guild will be showcased as part of Slow Food’s effort to promote the pleasures of eating and drinking from the well of our own backyard. Grilled sausages and charcuterie will be provided by local producers. Explore different tastes from pairing local brewers with the locally made foods. Proceeds from the event will benefit Slow Food San Francisco programs which include sending a Bay Area farmer to Terra Madre 2012 in Turin, Italy.

While tasting the brews, enjoy some some live music from The Brothers Lekas. The Brothers Lekas have been kicking back playing guitar, mandolin, and singing and writing songs for more than half of their lives. For the past five years, the brothers have been a backbone of the San Francisco music scene with their band In Rare Form, who have opened for diverse acts like The Mother Hips, Burning Spear, Spyro Gyra and Perpetual Groove at historic venues such as Slim’s and 12 Galaxies in San Francisco, The Coach House in San Juan Capistrano and Sweetwater in Mill Valley.
