SF Beer Week is back, and as always we’ve been hard at work thinking of events that pair cold, fizzy beer with some of our favorite things (think: dumplings 🥟, art 🎨, bikes 🚲, sake 🍶 and some good old fashioned competition 🎸). Read on for our full events lineup and continue to check back in as we add a few more surprises!

SF Beer Week Opening Gala

Friday, 2/7, 6:00PM — 9:00PM | 📍Stookey’s Club Moderne

The secret ingredient to a good cocktail? Good beer. See how the mixologists at Stookey’s Club Moderne utilize beer’s flavor as you would a fine spirit, liqueur, or fruit juice to make Fort Point beer cocktails. 1930s attire encouraged.

Come try KSA alongside other Kolsch and Kolsch-style-ales from both near and far and dip into new Party Bread flavors made just for the occasion.

The Making of a Fort Point Beer

Thursday, 2/13, 6:00PM — 10:00PM | 📍California Academy of Sciences Planetarium

Ever wonder what it’s like to be inside of a tank during fermentation but too smart to actually try it? Join us in the Morrison Planetarium for a special immersive experience presented by our Director of Brewing, Mike Schnebeck, as he shows how brewers combine 4 simple ingredients — hops, grain, yeast and water — to create endless flavor possibilities. As part of the special SFBW edition of NightLife, we’ll be pouring crowd favorites at a pop-up beer hall alongside dozens of local breweries.

Whole Hog Luau with 4505 + Fort Point

Friday, 2/14, 5:00PM — 11:00PM | 📍4505 Meats

Saturday, 2/15, 5:00PM — 10:00PM | 📍Amnesia | TICKETS

Join us for a night of local beer and music with the people who make SFBW possible — the brewers!

Each participating brewery will take the stage as well as the taps — come support the bands and stay for their beers!

Goldsworthy in the Presidio with Fort Point

Sunday, 2/16, 12:00PM — 3:00PM | 📍Presidio Officers’ Club | SOLD OUT

Our brewery sits on National Park land in the Presidio of San Francisco, a place full of surprises — like the largest collection of Andy Goldsworthy art on public view in North America. Meet us for a guided hike through Goldsworthy’s works led by Presidio Trust docents. After we’ll head to Presidio Social Club for a few Fort Point beers, made right in the Presidio.

Curry Night with Fort Point and Sequoia Sake

Sunday, 2/16, 5:00PM — 8:00PM | 📍Fort Point Ferry Building

Wrap up SFBW with a lantern-lit meal by three SF makers of delicious things. We’ll be pairing Fort Point beers with Sequoia Sake and our friend Michael Black will dish up Japanese curries to warm you from the inside out. We’ll have special beers on tap and folks from Sequoia will be there to talk sake. Come join the curry club and cheers to San Francisco!
