SF Beer Week 2021 Collabs
Since evolving into a regional guild that united breweries throughout the greater SF Bay Area, the Bay Area Brewers Guild has released official chapter collaboration beers in celebration of SF Beer Week, one for each of its five unique regional craft beer communities: San Francisco, North Bay, East Bay, Silicon Valley and the Coast.
These five unique one-off beers are led by a host brewery and two recipe breweries from each chapter. All five recipes included freshly kilned California-grown malts from Admiral Maltings in Alameda, one of the nation's few traditional artisan floor-malting facilities. And taking a village, these release have drawn directly, or indirectly through supporting dollars, from key trade partners:
- — Yeast: White Labs and GigaYeast
- — Hops: BSG Craft Brewing and Hollingbery & Sons Inc.
- — Malt: Admiral Maltings and Briess Malts
- — Labels: Custom Label and Barretto-co, who made the designs
These Bay Area Brewers Guild collaboration brews are an annual hallmark of SF Beer Week, expressing the brewers' collective state of mind each February, and honoring the cooperative and creative spirit of the craft beer community.
... and they go FAST.
You can look for them at Admiral Maltings' The Rake, throughout the region at Whole Foods Markets, or at local indie shops like City Beer Store (SF), Taplands (SV), Tiger's Taproom (EB), The Good Hop (EB), Oliver's Markets (NB), Beer Thirty (Coast), etc.
With thanks to all our Collaboration Beer Partners.
