Thanks to all you who purchased tickets for our 10th edition of Brews on the Bay. Are you ready for some sun, craft beer, great music and beautiful bay views this Saturday?

Here are a few reminders to ensure you have a fantastic time.

– The events starts at 12pm, last call is at 4:30pm, and we shut down at 5pm.

– This is a 21+ only event.

– Don’t forget your government issued photo ID! No ID, no entry.

– Print and bring your tickets for scanning at the entrance or use the Eventbrite App to show us the barcode. The line to get in will move much faster if you have either ready at the gate.

– No personal glasses, cups or mugs are allowed. Breweries will only be pouring beer in the provided cups.

– Dress in layers. It can be a little cool if the fog lingers or there’s a breeze.

– Be safe! Watch your step aboard the ship and please drink responsibly. Dangerously intoxicated attendees will not be served and escorted out by security.



Please do not drive. Take public transportation or consider using a service like Uber, which is a on-demand car service app.

You can request a Uber ride through the iPhone and Android apps, or by visiting Within minutes, a car will be curbside. Rides are billed directly to your credit card so there’s no need to carry cash. Plus, your receipt is automatically emailed to you at the end of your ride.

If you’ve never used Uber before, sign up with promo code BrewsOnTheBay to get $20 off your first ride!

For existing Uber riders, you can get 10% off rides to and from Pier 45 on Oct. 19 (up to $5, TAXI excluded) with the code Pier45Brews.
