7th Annual Meet the Brewers Beer Festival

Join us for the 7th Annual Meet the Brewers beer festival, a celebration of the best beer from Monterey to San Jose to Livermore, to the Peninsula. This is the biggest and best festival in the South Bay and beyond during SF Beer Week. All 30+ breweries attending are local, within 150 miles of San Jose. It’s like no other festival out there, and is truly a special event.
We have more room, more tickets, more breweries and more fun set for this year. Don’t miss it!
