SF Beer Week 2019 with Fort Point
Check out our event lineup for San Francisco Beer Week!
Each year, we think long and hard about how to create SF Beer Week events that are uniquely Fort Point — investigating curiosities, creating delicious traditions, and completely dedicated to being about so much more than the beer. With our powers combined, we’ve put together a lineup of events that we think really represents who we are as a brewery. Read on for our full program and check back in the coming weeks as we add in a few more fun surprises!
Friday, 2/1, 6:00PM — 10:30PM | 📍Pier 35
The SF Beer Week Opening Gala is the largest, most anticipated annual gathering of the Northern California craft beer community, featuring over 120 breweries serving the most creative and compelling beers our region has to offer. Our brewers will be on-site pouring Manzanita, Resonance, Bonanza, KSA, Carbon, and Native!
Saturday, 2/2, 2:00PM — 4:30PM | 📍Hong Kong Lounge
Come hungry for soup dumplings, Peking duck, coffee pork ribs, and many more dim sum classics, served alongside our KSA, Villager, Park, Westfalia, and Animal. All event proceeds will benefit the Richmond District Neighborhood Center!
Saturday, 2/2, 11:00AM — 4:00PM | 📍The Bistro
We brewed a brand new beer to compete in an The Bistro’s 19th Annual Double IPA Festival! Meet BONANZA — our take on a West Coast Double IPA. We brewed Bonanza to win, so stop by The Bistro to give it a try! With over 100 beers on tap and food trucks on hand, you can make a day of it
Sunday, 2/3, 10:30AM — 1:30PM | 📍Fort Point National Historic Site
Ever notice the SF landmarks expertly tucked into our can illustrations? Join us for a bike tour to explore all of our favorites! We’ll start at the Fort Point National Historic Site and end at our Ferry Building taproom, where the first round is on us. Proceeds go to the SF Bike Coalition, and a filled Fort Point growler is included in your ticket.
Monday, 2/4, 5:30PM — 10:00PM | 📍Mission Cheese
Taste your way through three cheese pairings, enjoy a delicious Makers Common brat, and finish it off with a gouda chocolate chip cookie pairing. Each course will be paired with a different Fort Point beer and our brewery staff will be on hand to share tasting notes.
Tuesday, 2/5, 4:30PM — 2AM | 📍Stookey’s Club Moderne
Did you know you can add complexity to a cocktail by using beer, just as you would a fine spirit, liqueur, or fruit juice? Join us at Stookey’s Club Moderne for a night of creative Fort Point beer cocktails at SF’s premier Streamline Moderne cocktail lounge. 1930s attire encouraged.
Wednesday, 2/6, 6:00PM — 11:00PM | 📍Foxsister
Korean-Asian fusion restaurant and bar, Foxsister, is hosting a Fort Point tap takeover! The Fort Point team will be onsite to hang out and teach you a little bit about our beers while enjoying music from guest DJ Champion Sound System.
Wednesday, 2/6, 6:30PM — 9:30PM | 📍18 Reasons
Our last SF Beer Week with 18 Reasons was such a delicious experience — we can’t wait to do it again! This year Chef Mike Weller is cooking up a six-course menu designed to pair perfectly with our beers. Break bread with our Head Brewer, Mike Schnebeck, as he shares beer stories and expertise at the dinner table.
Thursday, 2/7, 6:30PM — 9:30PM | 📍Exploratorium
We will be leading an interactive sensory exhibit exploring the key ingredients of beer at the Bay Area’s favorite science museum! Learn all you can, then follow it up with a pour of Living Lager — the beer we make exclusively for the Exploratorium in collaboration with the museum’s in-house homebrew club, the hOppenhiemers.
Thursday, 2/7, 6:00PM — 10:00PM | 📍California Academy of Sciences
Celebrate SF Beer Week with an evening of beer and science! Sip your way through a pop-up beer garden with dozens of breweries. Wander through the Osher Rainforest dome, watch a planetarium show, and enjoy limited releases and longtime favorites from us and other local breweries
Friday, 2/8, 6:00PM — 7:30PM | 📍The Oakland Museum of California
Join us for a design talk co-hosted by Fort Point and AIGA SF at the OMCA! Our Creative Director, Dina Dobkin, and Co-Founder, Justin Catalana, will be discussing what it means to be a design-driven company. Following the talk, we’ll visit the OCMA’s exhibit, The World of Charles and Ray Eames.
Friday, 2/8, 5:00PM — 11:00PM | 📍4505 Burgers & BBQ
Come on by 4505 Burgers & BBQ for a whole hog roasted “island style.” We’ll be pouring a specialty version of our Animal IPA, infused with pineapple on-the-spot. Additional Fort Point beers will be available on tap on 4505’s patio. Luau attire strongly encouraged!
Saturday, 2/9, 5:00PM — 8:00PM | 📍Fort Point, Ferry Building

Sunday, 2/10, 2:30PM — 5:30PM | 📍Presidio Officers’ Club
Our brewery lives on National Park land in the Presidio of San Francisco — a place full of nature and surprise, like Andy Goldsworthy’s living sculptures. Join us on a 3-mile hike led by Presidio Trust Docents, then head to the Presidio Social Club to enjoy a Fort Point beer!
Sunday, 2/10, 7:00PM — 10:00PM | 📍The Mint Karaoke Lounge
Wrap up another SF Beer Week with the people who make it possible — brewers! We’ll feature performances from the chosen songbirds of several Bay Area breweries. Come cheer for your favorite brewery, or favorite performer! You’re not voting for beer, you’re voting for star power.
We look forward to seeing you at SF Beer Week!
