Are you ready for some sun (go away fog!), craft beer and beautiful views this Saturday?

Thanks to all of you who purchased tickets to the 9th edition of Brews on the Bay. The festival is completely SOLD OUT. Sorry if you missed out on tickets. The event gets bigger and better each year. In 2012 we added six new Guild members (more beer options!), two more food trucks will be on the dock, and two bands will be performing. Here are a few reminders before the beer list, food trucks and musical acts are revealed below.

– Location: S.S. Jeremiah O’Brien, Pier 45, San Francisco (map).
– The event starts at 12pm, last call is at 4:30pm, and we shut down at 5pm.
– Don’t forget your ID
– Print and bring your tickets for scanning at the entrance. The line will move much faster.
– No personal glassware is allowed. If you bring it, we won’t be pouring beer in it. Cups are provided.
– Dress in layers. It can be a little cool if the fog lingers and there’s a breeze.
– Be safe! Watch your step aboard the ship and please drink responsibly.

Okay, with formalities aside, here’s what you really want to know.
