For the South Bay Beer Lovers…SV Beer Week!


My amazing friend Jen has organized the very first Silicon Valley Beer Week from July 28th through August 3rd! I sadly will not be around either weekend of it but am going to try and make it to one of the events during the week. Oh how I wish I could be at the closing event, KraftBrew Fest. We attended the Winter KraftBrew Fest back in February 2012 (see this post) and loved it so I am sure this one will be great as well! There are over 100 events to choose from! Find that complete list here. Many involve food pairing or tap takeovers by various breweries. I wish Jen all of the success she deserves from the very first Silicon Valley Beer Week!
