Just last year, long-time mainstays Beach Chalet Brewery & Restaurant and Social Kitchen & Brewery were joined by brewpub Sunset Reservoir Brewing, but now, with their 2017 openings, Seven Still’s Lawton and Woods Beer’s Outbound taproom additions have provided the critical mass needed to make a dedicated line possibly — and exploring Sunset more fun than ever.
Seven Still will get the honors of hosting members of the San Francisco Brewers Guild from 6-9pm for its monthly Meet the Brewers night, while the FREE #DrinkSFBeer shuttle kicks in at 6:30pm to loop between these five neighborhood breweries. And making this installment even more fun and tasty, you will have exceptional dinner options with Social Kitchen, Sunset Reservoir and Beach Chalet each sporting full restaurant menus.
Shuttles stop every 10 minutes, so it’s easy to ‘hop on, hop off’ at any stop and check out this burgeoning neighborhood. Riders can download the Chariot app to track shuttles in real time (reg req’d).
So join us for local craft beer as we celebrate SF brewing in the Sunset!
Partake in the 7th annual Taste of Potrero 2017 at historic Pier 70 in the Dogpatch and sip, savor, and nibble for public education. This food & drink fundraiser showcases business in the Potrero and surrounding neighborhoods. A ticket gets you admission, and unlimited small plates and open bar throughout the night. Laughing Monk Brewing Co., Seven Stills Brewery & Distillery, Almanac Beer Co., Harmonic Brewing Co., Magnolia Brewing Co., and Sufferfest Beer Co. will be participating along with a who’s who of SF restaurants.
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 SF brewery:
5/6 – Speakeasy Ales & Lagers (Facebook page)
6/10 – Standard Deviant Brewing
7/1 – Triple Voodoo Brewery
10/14 – Black Hammer Brewing
11/11 – Barebottle Brewing
