This Weekend's Brews on the Bay: You're At a Beerfest. On a Boat

Posted By on Thu, Sep 9, 2010 at 3:19 PM

This weekend, the S.S. Jeremiah O'Brien welcomes the seventh annual Bros on the Bay, er, Brews on the Bay, at Pier 45. What better way to celebrate the San Francisco Brewers Guild and its seven brewing members than paying $45 (in advance, $55 at the gate until it sells out) for unlimited samples of their beers ― over 40 to choose from, provided the kegs don't kick (and you can be sure some will).

Food is provided by Orson, but it's not included in the price of admission the way food is at other area beer fests costing the same. As you can tell, we're Brews skeptics, though its popularity is proof that there are a thousand people here who enjoy the experience of waiting in line for the very same beers they could sample any ol' time, provided they had access to a WWII Liberty ship. Sure, the same cover charge for the fest could get you about nine pints (that's over one and a quarter per brewery!) if you spent the day doing a brewery crawl, but then that nautical-themed pashmina afghan you'll be wearing sure would look silly. Just watch the video.

Where: Aboard the S.S. Jeremiah O'Brien, Pier 45, Fisherman's Wharf

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
