SF Bay Area – Reviving Community with Brewer Weekends

Bay Area Brewers Guild
Hard to fathom fall is here and the majority of 2021 is behind us. Hopefully a summer of hunkering down means better days ahead, and for us at the Bay Area Brewers Guild, we’d like to help bring back community by spotlighting five Bay Area regions — one for each weekend of October.

We’re kicking things off this weekend in the North Bay, where brewers often work hand-in-hand with local farms and use local ingredients, like fresh picked hops for wet-hopped beers. Along with highlighting those releases, other seasonal favorites (Oktoberfest, anyone?), plus fall brewery events, food & beer pairings, and a new brewery opening are all in the mix this weekend.
Collectively, these Brewer Weekends are meant as reminders there’s nearly always something special, fun or new at your neighborhood brewery every weekend, to enjoy safely on-site or grab and go.
They’re also intended as teasers for 2022, when we hope to finally hold these ‘beer week’ style occasions in their fuller glory, five dotted throughout the calendar, and do proper justice to each region’s unique and vibrant craft beer scene.
Until then, enjoy this impromptu 5-weekend October surprise, and help support and appreciate the neighborhood breweries who so often bring us together.

SF 2021 Strong Beer Week Paused for Pandemic

From: Shaun O’Sullivan
Hey Strong Beer good people. I hope you’re doing well and connecting safely with each other. This year we are pausing on Strong Beer Month with Magnolia Brewing for obvious reasons.
Strong Beer Month, every February, is largely a month-long retail event that relies strongly on people coming into our locations and enjoying the beers and themselves with our menu pairings, special events and frivolity. We are thinking about doing it later this year, but unsure about that at this point.
We’ll see you again and if you have a Strong Beer Month glass from previous years, head over to the 21st Amendment Brewery and Magnolia and pick-up some beer and pour it into that glass and think of us, as we’re thinking of you. Take care and be well.
