Is it Febuary 6th yet? No, but it is getting close - and so is SF Beer Week , and it will be huge. There are too many events – you can’t go to them all or at least I can’t. Still it’s sure going to be a fun week.

Here are the events that we here at BeerAtJoe’s want to try and attend:

Feb 7 – Double IPA Festival – this is a big one – Big beers at the Bistro

Feb 8 – Beerunch – why not – breakfast and beer – what an idea!

Feb 8 – Mexican Fiesta at Marin Brewing company – take the ferry – have some nachos and some great beer – not sure if I will make it to this one but I want to.

Feb 8 – Triple Rock Sour beer tasting  – More and more I am getting into sour beers. There will be a bunch at Triple Rock and Jupiter in Berkley.

Feb 9  – EAST COAST / WEST COAST SLAM WITH DOGFISH HEAD AND 21ST AMENDMENT – I am really excited about this one – sounds like it will be a chaotic exciting event.

Feb 11 – Brew day at Marin brewing company – This is already sold out but I am on the waiting list – I was ready to take off work for the chance to brew at Marin for a day.

Feb 11 – Beer + Nosh beer dinner at Scala’s Bistro – Got my tickets already for this one – Jenn from Top Chef fame working with the Beer + Nosh blog team. It is going to be sweet.

Feb 12 – CITY BEER STORE’S SOUR BEER AND CHOCOLATE NIGHT – more sour beer!  (and then after that maybe a trip to Toronado – should be a good crowd there)

Feb 13 – We’ve got something non beer to do this day but if you are looking for an event, I recommend  – THE BEER CHEF’S CHOCOLATE & BEER DINNER  – Bruce’s dinners are amazing and this one will not disappoint – We are sad we can’t go.

Feb 14 – Toronado Barleywine festival – the one and only – get there early and have a great time!

Feb 15 – BEER JUDGING 101 & 201 BEER EVALUATION SEMINARS in San Leandro – sounds cool and something I want to get better at. At GABF we did a 15 min. beer judging workshop and it was very interesting and different. This one seems to be more in depth.

Wow – lots to do – its going to be some beer week. Check out full info on all the events at http://www.sfbeerweek.org/ - I hope to see lots of other Bay Area beer people there too!

    If there was ever a reason for me to return to San Francisco, this is it. But which weekend should I attend!? Double IPA and Beerunch sound amazing! But how can I pass up the chance to romance my eternal affection for both barley wine and Toronado’s?

    I can’t promise anything, but I’ll see what I can do.
