Free SF Beer Week Events

February 7, 2017

Your dream has come true. Several days will be dedicated to beer. A whole 9 days to be exact. SF Beer Week, from the 10th to the 19th, will offer a variety of events ranging from dessert pairings to tap takeovers. Some events do charge admission, but no need to fret, we’ve compiled a list of tap takeovers, which are…free! (Of course the beer isn’t free but no cover charge for the event.) Which one will you take over?
