Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone in North Bay.
The SF Brewers Guild has set up a REGIONAL BREWERIES’ NORTH BAY RELIEF ACTIVITIES page to track North Bay fundraising activities being organized within the craft beer community, as we come together to support relief efforts and recovery.
We’ll add items as they are announced and scheduled, so you can keep an eye out for local events that will help our neighbors up north (with a tip of the hat to SF Gate’s Beer in the Bay).
Join Standard Deviant Brewing for an Autumn Beer Dinner at Mission Bowling Club.
A five course dinner of French-rustic-meets-Oktoberfest tavern cuisine, highlighting seasonal harvest and quality local brews from Standard Deviant.
The menu lineup will feature house made charcuterie, kuri squash, quail, venison, assorted fine cheeses and other delights paired with fine beer offerings. Get tickets here.
SF apparel company American Giant has partnered with Standard Deviant Brewing to hold a Hoodie Happy Hour — an event where quality beer meets quality clothing (and quality people!). AG will be showing off their Classic full zips in core colors (available for purchase) and samples from their 2017 Fall and Winter lines. Standard Deviant will be providing the coldest tasting beer in the city. Come through, check out some products, drink some beer, and hang out with us!
Sirwisa Brewing Collective hosts an evening of food and beer to showcase the results of connecting homebrewers, commercial breweries, and local chefs/restaurants with local farmers. Entrance gets you a commemorative tasting glass, which enables you to taste a diverse selection of food and beer pairings from 18 different stations. Get details and tickets here.
Run for stress relief, run for fitness, run for fun… just run. If you love the feeling of the pavement flying by beneath your feet — and a well-deserved celebration afterward — a City Beer Runs 5K / 10K is for you.
Each of these fully supported runs follows a route through the city’s streets, allowing you to soak up SF while getting in those miles. These runs aren’t timed, which means you can go all out or lope along at a leisurely pace as you see fit. But don’t dawdle too long; the finish line is at one of San Francisco’s bars or breweries, which means you’ll discover instant gratification in the form of a frosty beer. Fill those wobbly legs with a delicious drink and the blissful buzz of accomplishment — and make a toast to guilt-free fun.
Visit the website to sign up. Each run features raffle prizes and a post race beer from an awesome Bay Area brewery (all races in SF except where noted):
5/6 – Magnolia Brewing
6/10 – Standard Deviant Brewing
7/1 – Triple Voodoo Brewery
8/12 – Rogue Public House
9/9 – Santa Cruz Mountain Brewing – race in Santa Cruz
10/14 – Black Hammer Brewing
11/11 – Barebottle Brewing
12/9 – Faction Brewing – race in Alameda
Placed-based beers are a real thing — the concept is simple: how can you make a beer using hyper-local, wild ingredients, ingredients found and foraged from the natural landscape immediately around you?
This collaboration between local brewers, Beers Made By Walking and Sutro Stewards provides a great exploration of this concept. This summer, Sutro Stewards led hikes throughout SF’s Mount Sutro, during which native plants were identified. Now the beers inspired by this Sutro stroll are being tapped Saturday, Nov. 11, at Laughing Monk Brewing. Participating brewers are a who’s who of the local craft beer scene:
Barrel Head Brewhouse
Black Hammer Brewing
Comrades Brewing Company
Ferment Drink Repeat
Fort Point Beer Company
Laughing Monk Brewing
Magnolia Brewing Company
Redwood Coast Cider
Sirwisa Brewing Collective
Social Kitchen & Brewery
Standard Deviant Brewing
ThirstyBear Organic Brewery
Triple Voodoo Brewery
Woods Beer Company
plus… “Badger Brewing” Cody Badger
and… “Stovetop Homebrewster” Gail Williams
The beer list is TBA but stay tuned; there are always interesting brews that come out of these collaborations with nature. Event proceeds support the Sutro Stewards’ education and stewardship programs. Get tickets here.
