The San Francisco Brewers Guild invites you to celebrate 10 years of Brews on the Bay with us aboard the historic S.S. Jeremiah O’Brien at Pier 45, on Saturday, October 19th, from 12-5pm. Enjoy over 50 different beers made by San Francisco breweries, while soaking up the salty air, sunshine, live music, food, and spectacular views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and San Francisco.

This year’s event is shaping up to be our biggest and best yet. You can expect our member breweries to serve unlimited eight-ounce pours of their latest and greatest IPA, farmhouse ale, session beer, barrel-aged sour, imperial stout, and many other beer styles. The brewers will also be on hand to answer any questions about your favorite beers.

They’ll line the pier to fill your mouth-watering needs for a few extra bucks. We’ve also enlisted The Brothers Comatose to play their lively roots music on the ship’s deck, whileThe Up & Down will be playing on the pier.
