The 2nd annual BevMo Holiday Beerfest will be held at Fort Mason this Saturday, November 20, from 5:30 until 9:00 p.m.
More than 100 local and international breweries will be pouring over 150 holiday, seasonal and special beers, including cider. For the designated driver, they’ll also be serving craft soda.
Tickets are $40 and may be purchased online, and include unlimited samplings of the beer. Food will be available for purchase and three bands will be performing throughout the evening: Con Brio (Funk, Jazz & Soul), Sentinel (Indie Pop Alternative) and the Jugtown Pirates (Acoustic Psychedelic Bluegrass).
This was a fun festival last year and a great opportunity to try a number of different holiday seasonals at one place. See you there.
From the website, where you can also see a list of the beers being poured:
“These special brews are produced once a year in very limited quantities”
Holiday, Seasonal & Special Beers, (some are called Winter Warmers), date back thousands of years. Brewers today have continued the ritual with either very old recipes or new fangled ideas using spices, fruits, herbs, coffee & chocolate. These unique brews will bring a smile to your lips and a glow to your spirit.
