Beers Made by Walking is a program that invites brewers to make beer inspired by nature hikes and urban walks. Each trail is different, each beer is a portrait of the landscape. The program happens in multiple cities each year with hikes attended by the public as well as local brewers.

Brewers are challenged to create unique, place-based beers that serve as drinkable, landscape portraits inspired by the trails. A tapping event and celebration will take place this fall to showcase these creative beers! Proceeds benefit Sutro Stewards education and stewardship programming.


The Monk’s Kettle – #CraftBeeringIsCaring Benefit

Jun 24, 2017 12:00 am - 11:59 pm

Join Monk’s Kettle on June 24 in making a statement as they host an event celebrating local brewers and reaffirming their support of independent craft breweries and buy-local, community-first activism.

For this event, Monk’s will be selling the last of the very few A-B Inbev (ABI) products they have with proceeds to benefit a community activist program championing this mission. For example, now that Belgian brewery Bosteels sold to ABI, Monk’s Kettle will be selling off their last remaining bottles of Tripel Karmeliet and their Biere de Champagne, DeuS.

More significantly, Monk’s wants to celebrate our community of local brewers who they work with day in, day out throughout the year.  They will be pouring the following beers, with $1/pint going to the cause:

Cellarmaker Hoppiness is Fleeting — cask dry hopped with South African hop “XJA436” (alongside regular draft of the base beer)

Temescal – unnamed beer using South African hops, the same hops no longer available to craft breweries due to ABI ownership of hop farms in that region.

Alvarado Street Below the Belt – IPA made with hops from Southern Hemisphere countries that are not South Africa.

As a trade association representing local, independent craft breweries, we greatly appreciate retail partners like The Monk’s Kettle who put local communities and businesses first. Come support them as they support us, and in the process, enjoy some amazing brews — and the last tastes of South African hops delivered by local independent brewers.

Ferment.Drink.Repeat One Year Anniversary

Jun 24, 2017 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Come celebrate the one year anniversary of Ferment.Drink.Repeat. Open at noon, they’ll be releasing Hopsleeve IPA, a west coast-style hop bomb that delivers huge citrus and dank aroma and flavor on top of a firm malt backbone leading to a dry, crisp finish. Enjoy live music throughout the day with performances by Vinnie Guidera and the Dead Birds, Karaj, Alvie and Phillip (from Alvie and the Breakfast Pigs), Killer Caribou, and more to come. Time to party!

City Beer Runs – Various: Speakeasy, Standard Deviant, Triple Voodoo, Black Hammer, Barebottle

Jul 1, 2017 12:00 am - Jan 6, 2018 11:59 pm

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
