Beer Week: Opening Night Gala
We want to continue our highlighting of the San Francisco Beer Week with a look at one of the first events that you will have the chance to attend: the Opening Night Gala. As you can probably guess, the opening night for an event that lasts ten whole days is going to be a big deal, and tickets to this particular evening are going to become scarcer and scarcer as we near the date of the party itself.
So, you might be asking, what exactly is the Opening Gala and why would I want to go to it? This is a fabulous question, and one that we are only too delighted to answer.
The Opening Gala is the first salvo of Beer Week, the inaugural firework, the ribbon cutting ceremony (metaphorically speaking). Held along the historic Pier 35, located at 1454 along The Embarcadero, the Opening Gala will last from 6:00 in the evening until 10:30, providing the attendees four-and-a-half hours of time to mingle with some of the top brewmasters and tastemakers in the Bay Area and the country.
Many of the breweries that will have special events throughout Beer Week itself will hold sneak previews of their delights at the Opening Gala, which means that by attending you will have the chance to experience some of the upcoming wonders and prepare yourself for the joys that await you. Expect some extravagant sours, heavily hopped Hazy IPAs, chocolatey stouts, smoky porters, juicy pale ales, and much more. Beers, in fact, for every taste, every palette, every mouth (provided these mouths belong to bodies over 21).
The San Francisco Beer Week Opening Gala will feature an entire community of brewers gathering under one roof to share their fruits of their labor, and the fact that this is open to the public is something of a miracle.
The Opening Gala will be held on Friday, February 1st, at Pier 35 in San Francisco. Tickets begin at $80 per person, which, when you consider just what you’re going to be receiving, is a total steal. Make your reservation today, before it is too late!
