SF Beer Week 2018 Events
A complete list of Fort Point Beer Company’s events
With the start of each new year, the team at Fort Point Beer Company begins to feel a familiar sense of excitement about what lays just around the corner: SF Beer Week.
SF Beer Week is one of the largest and longest beer events in the Bay Area, with hundreds of events occurring over the span of nine beer-filled days. This year we’ve been preparing by brewing several different beers just for this festival (read more about them on this blog post from our head brewer). Our Experience Team always works tirelessly to put together the best events possible, finding new and interesting ways to connect with you guys — our fans — as well as bringing back tried-and-true favorites (hello, Dim Sum Brunch!). Below you’ll find a lineup of our events for SF Beer Week — we hope to see you at one or more of them!
We’ll continue to update this post with the latest SF Beer Week information for our events, so be sure to check back for the latest updates!
