The SF Beer Week Opening Gala, the top-tier regional invitational festival that kicks off the festivities at Pier 48 (San Francisco, CA) on February 10, will spotlight flavor-driven brewing innovations glass by glass. Revelations and discoveries will continue through hundreds of thirst-quenching events around the greater San Francisco Bay Area, wrapping up on February 19.

Northern California’s finest breweries are hard at work planning for an incredible week with nearly 200 events already live on the schedule at sfbeerweek.org. Tickets to the Opening Gala are now on sale (VIP: $120/GA: $80). VIP tickets include early entry at 5 pm and a SF Beer Week t-shirt; General Admission runs 6 pm – 10:30 pm.

Over 100 breweries operate in one of the world’s most creative regions. The Bay Area continues to be a hotbed of beer innovation, where trends and techniques are created, rediscovered and riffed on. Flipping beer styles on their heads, wielding a growing influence on celebrity chefs’ dishes and renowned restaurants’ beverage menus, adapting beer-making techniques, creating specialized businesses like fermentation-only facilities, embracing entrepreneurial endeavors as with California’s first artisan malting company — innovation continues apace in the City by the Bay and the broader area.

Northern California brewers are proud of their regional heritage and the trends they have given rise to but are not insular. They not only forge new paths, but adopt new approaches and, like jazz impresarios, constantly riff and refine. The explosion of beer substyles on tap during SF Beer Week will attest to that exchange.

This February, let the region’s leading craft beer sherpa, SF Beer Week, guide you through ten days of craft beer discovery. More than a week’s worth of compelling experiences will be waiting for you, thanks to a craft beer community devoted to innovation, experimentation and never sitting still.
