It's back again and the schedule is finally up on the official website. Mother Nature willing, I'll be back there again this year. She interrupted my travel plans last year and I improvised here on the East Coast if you recall.
The 2nd Annual Run is due to take place on Sunday the 13th. I'll have a bit more to tell about this in coming days.
Maybe it's just because I can only really do anything on the 11th or 12th, but there weren't any events that jumped out at me. Am I missing something?
Rich, the Vintage Beer event on the 11th and the Barrel aged Beer event on the 12th are the events I'd definitely go to if I was there...
I guess it depends upon how you look at the list and how experienced you are in and around SF.
Unless you travel there quite a bit, I see a lot of establishments that many beer travelers may not be familiar with. And, while the City has plenty to offer, the Double IPA Fest (if you're a hophead) is well worth the BART train ride south to Hayward.
But, with such a short time there, it seems that the opening gala would be an excellent opportunity to find a lot of beers/breweries that we don't see on the East Coast and special ones that you won't have time to track down during the rest of SFBW.
I wasn't planning on getting too establishment-specific in this reply, but I'd be remiss in not reiterating what I think is consistently some of the best beer made in a city that has some very good breweries: Magnolia. I see that every day they're doing a pairing menu with their beers at their sister establishment, The Alembic.
Hmm, thanks guys. My sister-in-law really liked Magnolia and the ones Kevin suggested sound good. I figured I just didn't look carefully enough honestly.
