Magnolia Pub & Brewery
If it hasn't become obvious already, SF Beer Week isn't simply a celebration of San Francisco beer, or even Bay Area beer in general. While the calendar surely has a local focus (and rightly so), many breweries from throughout California, neighboring states, and even other countries have traveled many miles to participate in our festivities. Yup, we're just that popular. Today we'll begin with an event at one of our fine SF breweries, then move outward to explore East Bay beer culture and eventually one of San Diego's finest outfits.
