It's that time of year again, beer-loving ladies and gents: San Francisco Beer Week is just a couple of weeks away. The fun kicks off with the big opening weekend grand tasting at the Concourse Pavilion on Friday, February 8, featuring over over 65 California breweries serving up hundreds of craft beers. Early Bird tickets are still available for $65 (the offer ends today) and please be advised that this event does sell out, and gets quite packed. See the schedule of events as it stands here, and if you run a bar or restaurant and would like to host an event, you can still submit it for scheduling see the guidelines here. Also! This year, one of the big events of Beer Week will be this big party on February 15 at Speakeasy Brewing's newly open tap room (1195 Evans Avenue). It's free to get in, and will feature fifteen rare and limited release Speakeasy beers on tap as well as the Del Popolo pizza truck.
