The SF Maritime Beerfest unites some of the Bay Areas best-loved attractions: craft brews, local eats, and breathtaking views. The annual event unfolds at Pier 45, where festival-goers grab a souvenir mug before sipping unlimited samples from international craft breweries including Diving Dog Brew House, Founders Brewery, and Lagunitas. To soak up some of the suds, local food vendors The Pub and El Paisa Taco come to the rescue, all the while live DJs get crowds moving without the help of a dive-bombing seagull.
Guests can up the ante with one-of-a-kind tours of the pier's historic ships and the WWII submarine USS Pampanito. Whether above or below the waves, however, the festival promises unforgettable sunset views of San Fran's most iconic sites, including Coit Tower and Fisherman's Wharf.
