Collaboration Beer Highlights

Community, Creativity, Collaboration

They say the craft beer industry is becoming more competitive, more divisive. They expect the supportive spirit that has made this industry so unique, so rooted in camaraderie, will not last. Well, it seems the craft beer community has something to say about that.

This year, at least 19 collaboration beers are being tapped at the SF Beer Week Opening Gala are collaborations between at least two breweries.

Further more, an addition 11 are being trotted out during SF Beer Week at select events, and another 16 beers featuring collaborations between professional brewers and homebrewers will be released at the annual Sirwisa Pro Hops for Housing event held each SF Beer Week.
