Ladies and gentlemen, open your calendar and save this date: Saturday, October 19th, 12-5pm. The San Francisco Brewers Guild invites you to celebrate 10 years of Brews on the Bay with us aboard the historic S.S. Jeremiah O’Brien at Pier 45. Enjoy over 50 different beers made by San Francisco breweries, while soaking up the salty air, sunshine, live music, food, and spectacular views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and San Francisco.

This year’s event is shaping up to be our biggest and best yet. Although we’re still finalizing some of the details, you can expect our member breweries to serve unlimited eight ounce pours of their latest and greatest IPA, farmhouse ale, session beer, barrel-aged sour, imperial stout, and many other beer styles. The brewers will also be on hand to answer any questions about your favorite beers.

In addition to the local beer, we’re going to serve up local food and music. San Francisco’s best food trucks will line the pier to fill your mouth-watering needs. We’ve also enlisted The Brothers Comatose to play their lively roots music on the ship’s deck.

The S.S. Jeremiah O’Brien is a historical landmark from the World War II Merchant Marine era, and a portion of festival proceeds will benefit the National Liberty Ship Memorial. Brews on the Bay tickets will go on sale August 5th at 10:00am. For the latest event updates, follow us on Facebook or Twitter.
