If you're anything like us, you're thinking "TGISFBWF!" Thank God it's SF Beer Week Friday! It's time to start planning your grand finale. If you haven't already, you'll need to feign illness and ditch out on work. Just say that your liver is acting up (it's certainly about to). For today's romp, we've selected three staggered events in the city, all of which can be attended by the ambitious beer week partygoer.
