Holiday Beer Fest Official Beer List 6

BevMo is hosting a Holiday Beer Fest at Fort Mason in San Francisco on Sunday, November 15th from 1pm to 4pm. The event costs $35 and tickets are ONLY available online. (If tickets are still available the day of the event, they can be purchased at the Herbst Pavilion Door for $45-cash). A portion of the proceeds is being donated to the Monterey Culinary Arts Foundation — which I totally dig.


Another awesome perk of attending the event is being able to taste “soon-to-be-released” holiday beers before they are actually released. And because I’m super awesome (go with it), I was privileged enough to be sent the list of beers for tasting.


Naturally, I have my opinions about many of the beers in the line up (the good, the bad and the ugly). There are some tables that I will avoid like the plague ::cough:: CORPORATE ::cough::

And then there are some tables that I might spend copious amounts of time at — i.e.: De Proef, Allagash, Bison, Green Flash, Stone etc…

Either way, here is the super star list of breweries pouring their specialty and holiday beers at the Holiday Beer Fest in San Francisco on Sunday, November 15th. If you are in the Bay Area, I highly suggest attending this event. It should be awesome.
