We’ve done a few beer weeks before; heck, we even started a beer week once in a night of questionable judgement. But, this year, we get to participate in the grandaddy of west coast Beer Weeks, San Francisco Beer Week.
Here’s what we’ve got lined up at The Half Orange:
Monday, February 9: Explore the Bay Area through beer, with a 100% local version of our Monday beer special. Eight taps, all from local craft breweries, each for $2.98 + tax.
Wednesday, February 11: Meet The Brewer with Fort Point Beer Company. Brewer Mike Schnebeck in the house while we pour their St. Francis 12 (Belgian Quad collaboration with De Struise), Westfalia, Villager IPA and KSA (Kolsch).
Friday, February 13: Fieldwork Brewing Debut! Our former colleague from the good ol’ days in San Diego, Barry Braden, also moved to the East Bay and he started a Berkeley brewery, which will be releasing its first beer to the Bay Area today. Around noon we’ll be tapping the first of their beers, and Barry will be in house. We’ll also have a few of our San Diego favorites on draft to celebrate the good times. Details of this event are still in flux, keep checking back.
Saturday, February 14: Party at Ale Industries. We’ll be open at the Half Orange our usual hours (11:30am to 9pm), but we’ll also be at Ale Industries for a very special Beer Week versions of their Second Saturday party, with music, art, and Ale Industries beer. Join us at both places!
We hope to see you at one or all of these events, and we hope you really enjoy SF Beer Week. We will!
