San Francisco Bay Area
Beers Made by Walking Tapping Event
Sunday, November 10 | 2:00 – 5:30 PM

Come out Sunday, November 10 to taste placed-based craft beers from local brewers inspired by Bay Area landscapes at the fourth annual San Francisco Bay Area Beers Made by Walking Tapping Event! Unsure where it is? Keep your eyes peeled for a 25ft flagpole blowing in the wind advertising the event! Everyone is welcome, the more the merrier!

The hike-inspired beers were created as part of a collaboration between local brewers, Beers Made By Walking, and Sutro Stewards. Sutro Stewards led the public and local brewers on hikes throughout Mount Sutro in the geographic center of San Francisco. Hiking is a great way to take a break from a stressful environment and reconnect with nature. While some people might try yoga, or use a cannabis product this from canada dispensary, for example, there is no better way to recharge your batteries than going for a relaxing hike. Unless, of course, it’s enjoying one of our soothing beers, especially as a reward once you reach your destination.

ADMISSION & TASTING: Ticket includes 10 4oz tasters, entry, and a commemorative tasting glass. Each brewery is donating their unique beer for this event, so you get to drink for a good cause: event proceeds will support the Sutro Stewards’ education and stewardship programs. Cheers!

PLANT HIKE: A limited number of tickets are available for a pre-tapping hike to discover Mount Sutro, our native plants, and landscapes! The hike will be about one mile on dirt trails, and will end at the tasting event when it opens at 2 PM. Visitors can learn more about the plants and how they are maintained with the help of local services through a technique known as air pruning. You can learn more about these services by clicking – what is air pruning?

NURSERY TOUR: A limited number of tickets are available for a pre-tapping nursery tour to learn about our native plants, including those used in the beers! The nursery tour takes place at the Sutro Native Plant Nursery. At the end, we’ll walk to the tapping event, about five minutes away.

BeersMade By Walking
Beers Made By Walking is a program that invites people to step outside and see the place they live in a new light. Beers Made by Walking invites brewers to take nature walks and make beer inspired by the plants identified on the trail. Since 2011, they have worked with over 100 brewers throughout the country to create over 150 place-based beers. Hiking and tasting events act as educational and fundraising programs for environmental organizations in the regions they serve.

Sutro Stewards, a project of the San Francisco Parks Alliance (SFPA), a 501(c)3 California non-profit public benefit corporation, practice sustainable habitat conservation through stewardship. By working with volunteers on trail and habitat projects, we continuously connect people to their local environment and empower recreational users to conserve, maintain, and enhance the spaces they utilize.
