I don’t usually send out anything except my column to my email list. But I think this one’s worthwhile. Read on:

SF Brewers Guild Beer & Bites Festival

I’m terribly late with this one. Sorry. Been checked out on vacation. But check this out: Saturday – tomorrow, March 24, 20076 – the San Francisco Brewer’s Guild is sponsoring “Beer & Bites”, more than 20 beers from San Francisco craft brewers, plus great food. Cost is $50, time is from Noon to 4 p.m. at 1 Fort Mason.

The event will benefit Slow Food San Francisco and help to support the School Garden Project at Sanchez Elementary School and other programs.

Here’s all the info, straight from the SF Brewer’s Guild:

“This event is the first of its kind in San Francisco and will focus on tasting and pairing a wide array of San Francisco-brewed beers (more than 20) with some of Northern California’s best artisan food. Participating breweries will include: Beach Chalet, Gordon Biersch, Magnolia Pub and Brewery, The San Francisco Brewing Company, Speakeasy Ales and Lagers, Thirsty Bear, and 21st Amendment. Our participating food producers include Cowgirl Creamery, The Fatted Calf, Acme Bread Company, Harley Farms Goat Dairy, and Hog Island Oyster Company.

“Beer & Bites will be a wonderful opportunity to sample a wide variety of San Francisco-brewed beer, learn about beer-food pairings, and socialize with devotees of good food.

“Tickets are still available online via InTicketing as well as at all particiating breweries while they last. Tickets are $50 for unlimited tasting of beer and food.”

Unfortunately, I’m working until 3:30 p.m., so there’s no way I can make it. Anyway. This one sounds very worthwhile.
