Famous Floating Festival

The annual Brews on the Bay beer festival at Fishermans’ Wharf in SF is unique in several of its features.  It’s all-City, completely local — now with nearly 30 SF breweries expected.  Who knew we’d get 30 breweries just within the City of SF itself?  But more astonishing, it’s on the Jeremiah O’Brien, a legendary Liberty Ship that still floats today thanks for volunteers who keep things shipshape.

Liberty Ships were built in the Bay Area to win WWII. You can get shown around during the fest if you dig history and engineering.  Or just hang on deck enjoying a band and tasting an amazing array of beers.  The Bay view from the deck is stunning. And this fest usually features excellent San Francisco Food trucks dockside. This Saturday the food tasting may be as good as the beer tasting.

All on Saturday Sept. 17!  Tix at the door, or grab them now:  See you there.

We’ve got some fond memories:


P.S. If you are like a lot of locals who avoid Fishermans’ Wharf, this is an excuse to take that historic streetcar line, the “F,” from the Ferry Building near Embarcadero BART, and rumble down to the Liberty Ship.  It’s also a pleasant walk.
