In just over two months hundreds of beer tastings, dinners, festivals and educational events will take place across the Bay Area during SF Beer Week from February 10th to the 19th. This highly anticipated week draws tens of thousands of attendees together in bars, restaurants and stores to celebrate the region’s craft beer culture and history. On December 12th we’re giving fans an early peek at what’s to come by launching the SF Beer Week 2012 website and schedule.

The SF Beer Week website is where beer fans can find a complete schedule of events, lodging, plan and save their own itinerary, learn about sponsors, buy commemorative gear and see photos of prior revelry. After launch, the site will be continuously updated with additional events as they become finalized, making it the go to source for new and exciting information.

This year’s schedule is expected to exceed a whopping 400 events. You can anticipate special beer release parties, food pairing dinners at some of the region’s top restaurants, meet the brewer nights and other occasions highlighting the creativity and diversity of craft beer.

This is the fourth edition of SF Beer Week, which is organized by the San Francisco Brewers Guild and other Northern California craft beer industry members. The San Francisco Brewers Guild is a volunteer, non-profit 501(c)(6) organization composed of eight member breweries in San Francisco. Individual events are produced by breweries, brewpubs, beer importers, wholesalers, restaurants, bars and retail stores, which are collectively marketed and promoted under the umbrella of SF Beer Week.
