It is going to be a busy end of the week and weekend. The Beer At Joe’s crew (and guests) will be attending two events:
I am pretty excited about SF Chefs Food Wine. We will be covering this event as much as we can. It is happening in San Francisco and will be headquartered in Union Square.It is going to be a food, wine, beer, and spirit blow out with a bunch of sessions, parties, and demonstrations. I will try and post sometime soon a few of the events we are going to go to and some others that people might be interested in. I think there are still tickets left – and if you look around on the web there should be some discounts. Also if you have a visa signature card it should help you out some too. The event runs Thursday August 6th - Sunday August 9th.
The next event is a special one and one I know a bunch of readers are looking forward to. It is the annual Bistro IPA Festival out in Hayward, CA (as William Brand use to say – Take BART – it beats driving). As always expect 50 or so IPAs and of course a bunch of hop heads. The price looks a bit higher then last year but oh well you have to pay to play – $25 for glass and 5 – 6oz pours- usually buying more tickets later are cheaper. If I see the list online before the event I will post it. See you there.
