SF Beer Week events in Temescal

Friday, February 9 – Sunday, February 18
Participating Temescal restaurants, breweries and taprooms
Come celebrate SF Beer Week in Temescal! SF Beer Week is a collection of curated events, spanning multiple days, that celebrate craft beer and the craft beer community. With Hog’s Apothecary, Roses’ Taproom, Temescal Brewing, Lanesplitter Pizza and many other beer-centric businesses in the Temescal BID, SF Beer Week will be packed with dozens of events in Temescal.

Saturday, February 10 | Brewers in the Hot Seat | 2 – 5pm | Hog’s Apothecary | 375 40th St | FREE
This panel discussion features principles from four of California’s most highly regarded breweries: John Gillooly of Drake’s, Ting Su of Eagle Rock, Jim Harte of Ol’ Republic, and Collin McDonnell of HenHouse. The panel will moderated by “Bay Area Beer Guru” Sayre Piotrkowski and Chauncey Jackson, of BrewStuds and AllThingsBeer510. The twist: as the panel goes along, each participant must eat wings from progressively hotter plates of wings with each segment and only a select beer from their brewery to help them through the ordeal!
Sunday, February 11 | Firefly Rebellion North Oakland Beer Crawl | 1:30 – 7pm | Four Temescal Breweries – Meet at Roses Taproom | FREE | RSVP strongly encouraged HERE
Join us first Sunday of SFBW 2018 for a beer crawl led by “Bay Area Beer Guru,” Sayre Piotrkowski, featuring Roses Taproom, Temescal Brewing, Hog’s Apothecary and ending at Arthur Mac’s Tap and Snack for Happy Hour where DJ Dennis Yadroff will preside over the debut of “Neon Rise” Triple Dry-Hopped Pale Bock Beer and also be behind the turn-tables!
