Ahhh, February. That wonderful month where we celebrate civil rights leaders, presidents, little fat babies that shoot love arrows, and the single biggest sporting event in America. However, there is one more event that should be added to that list. SF Beer Week. Don’t deny the chills that just went down your spine. It is truly a beer lovers experience. More than a week filled with hundreds of events throughout the Bay Area where folks get to sample some of the best beers in the world. And, this year will surely live up to the hype. We, here at Strike, have quite a few fun plans for this year; and, we thought we’d share them with you.
February 7th, we will don our best brewery t-shirts and jeans to represent Strike at the Opening Gala for SF Beer Week. It will be held at the San Francisco Concourse Exhibition Center. Unfortunately, the event is already sold out; but, if you know a guy who knows a guy, we suggest you get your hands on some tickets.
February 8th, we will be back down in San Jose’s Japantown participating in the Beerwalk. Customers will be able to stroll around the local neighborhood to different businesses that will each host a different brewery pouring their tantalizing treats. Tickets can be purchased here.
February 9th, we are teaming up with the San Francisco Hash Harriers to co-host a trail run at Esprit Park at 1pm. If you’ve ever been to a hash, or heard of someone going to a hash, let’s just say there will be plenty of beer involved.
February 12th is going to be filled with some tasty treats. We, along with other South Bay brewers, are teaming up with Smitten Ice Cream at Whole Foods in Los Altos. They are turning some of their frosty treats into an adult-only dessert spectacular. Beer in ice cream… need we say more? This will be a ticketed event so keep an eye out for it on our Facebook page and the SF Beer Week website.
February 15th we have a couple of things going on. In the early afternoon, we’ll be at the 5th annual Meet the Brewers hosted by our friends at Hermitage Brewing. Many South Bay breweries will be in attendance pouring a large range of beers. You can get tickets to that one here. Then, in the late afternoon and evening, we’ll be making an appearance near the ocean in Santa Cruz Mountain Brewery’s Twisted Tasting. According to our buddies at SCMB, they will be, “showcasing forty of the most unique, experimental and unusual beers in the world partnered with locally produced exotic, beer inspired food.” We have no doubt this will be a fun event. More information and links to buy tickets can be found here.
Along with all of these events, we are still in discussion with other local businesses to come up with more beer week events. As we get those finalized, we’ll make sure to add them to our events page
We hope to see all of you at least once or twice during the week. Make sure to drop by our booths and tell us how you’re doing and what you’re most excited to see at the new brewery.
Cheers to another great SF Beer Week,
