In this whiskey swilling, wine sniffing town, beer is sometimes overlooked. The organizers of the Bay Area Brew Festival wish to remind us that there are some major breweries in our area, and do so each year by plying thousands of citizens with the sudsy stuff. This year’s event promises to be bigger than ever, with brews both domestic and international accompanied by the city’s finest food truck fare. Note that there are two sessions and ask yourself, “Am I really a day drinker?” before buying a ticket. Your admission includes unlimited tastings so just remember what your college roommate taught you: It’s not a race. It’s a marathon.
