San Francisco Beer Week is quickly approaching and I'll be covering a number of events from the opening gala through to the last day.
For those who may be unfamiliar with Beer Week, it is an annual event sponsored by the San Francisco Brewers Guild to promote and extol craft beer. This year Beer Week runs from from February 8th through February 17th and includes about 425 events spread out across the Bay Area and as far away as Santa Rosa and Santa Cruz.
In previous years I had gone to one or maybe two events but this year I plan to attend quite a few more. Below is a list the events that I'll be trying to make it to and if anyone is interested in joining me, feel free to come along.
