The 30th Annual San Francisco International Beer Festival will be April 27th, 2013, 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM PST at the Fort Mason Centerâ€™s Festival Pavillion. For a $65 admission, beer and food enthusiasts receive a tasterâ€™s mug for bottomless samples of hundreds of craft beers from their favorite local and international breweries as well as delicious eats from sensational San Francisco restaurants. Last yearâ€™s Fest was attended by nearly 4,000 suds lovers and sold out in under 20 minutes. Hailed as one big keg party, the SFIBF opens its gates to patrons using an air horn and, despite the popularity and fast and furious start, lines are commonly very short and move quickly.
This is a festival with a great cause, as the SFIBF is the sole fundraiser for the Telegraph Hill Cooperative Nursery school. The event is entirely produced by the parents of Tel-Hiâ€™s preschool students and the money raised will fund the teaching and learning programs at the school for an entire year. Consider it drinking (responsibly) for a better tomorrow. The families thank you, and the kids thank you. Meanwhile, raise your mug and tickle your homebrew fancy with over 200+ craft beers.
