We know you like to rock. Perhaps you're reading this from your cubicle, and your colleagues have no idea there's an Iron Maiden t-shirt lurking underneath your sweater vest. You love live music, but every time you reach the front of the line at a concert concession stand, you're faced with overpriced, watered-down swill. Thankfully, the BudMillerCoors stranglehold on concert brew is over. Welcome The Bay Brewed, a unique opportunity to rock out with your craft beer out.
The Bay Brewed: A Rock and Roll Beer Festival is brought to you by City Beer Store, the SF Brewer's Guild, and The Bay Bridged, a local non-profit dedicated to exposing local independent artists. Rather than forking over $8 for a silver bullet, you can chat with reps from 9 local breweries as you enjoy unlimited beer tasting from a commemorative glass. With Rosamunde on hand to sell sausages, you'll have all your vital needs under one roof. Brush up on your simultaneous air guitar/beer sipping routine, and you're ready to go.
