Brews on the Bay Gives You Justification for Pounding Suds
This weekend offers beer drinkers a chance to imbibe at the sixth annual Brews on the Bay, September 12 and 13. Over 40 handcrafted local artisan breweries are participating, with the drinking happening on the historic S.S. Jeremiah O'Brien, the World War II-era Liberty Ship docked at Pier 45, and with stunning sea and city views. Tickets are $35-$45, available here. Eats from Oola at the Rib Shack -- that'll run you extra money, so bring some bills. Live music from Zepparella and Zoo Station are slated. The Beach Chalet, Magnolia Pub & Brewery, Gordon Biersch, San Francisco Brewing Company, Thirsty Bear, 21st Amendment, and San Francisco Speakeasy Ales & Lagers will all be pouring. Designate a driver, and dive in.
