This spring, summer and fall, the Conservatory of Flowers, a beloved SF cultural institution that showcases rare and unique tropical plants from around the world, is bringing back its popular after hours public programs, Botanicals and Brews. Hosted at the iconic wood-and-glass greenhouse on Friday evenings, the program presents the institution as rarely seen – after dark when nightfall shows the living museum in a striking new light.
This beer garden party — the third Friday of each month — brings in craft brewmasters from around the Bay Area to tell tall tales of botanical brewing. On select nights, host brewers will serve up special brews inspired by the Conservatory. All you need do is to grab a ticket, claim a picnic table and sip the night away as you soak up the breathtaking Conservatory views and take in the galleries.
This year’s series includes a new experience, an exclusive tasting featuring acclaimed host breweries. Perfect for novices and experts alike, a guided flight by expert craft beer makers will explore the varieties and flavors of craft beer.
