Geek Out for Silicon Valley Beer Week w/ PayPal and Yelp!

In celebration of Silicon Valley Beer Week, we've teamed up with Yelp for a special night of celebrating local beer (for a great cause).

Come on down to enjoy tasting with some of Silicon Valley's best breweries, plus fun snacks and games! Then move into the TechX room for a beer-filled panel discussion with each of the local brewers.

**Bust out your TechXploration Anniversary glass for this one folks!

Come Taste and then Hear From:

Hermitage Brewing Company
Half Moon Bay Brewing Company
Santa Cruz Mountain Brewing
And Others (to be confirmed…)

But wait, there’s more!
+ Bill’s Hot Dogs for first 200 people*
+ DIY Pretzel Necklaces 
+ Ice Cream
+ Giant Jenga
+ Prizes and Surprises


*Please do not expect a full dinner at this event. We are warning you. :)

This event is 21+.

Though TechXploration is always free, we're thrilled to have the opportunity to support Valley Verde, a local nonprofit whose mission is to cultivate organic home vegetable gardens in low-income communities.

A suggested $5 will be collected at the door for this night only - 100% will go towards building out vegetable gardens across the South Bay. To learn more about this amazing nonprofit, click here.


Everyone who donates will be entered into a beerlover's raffle.



@ 6:30PM: Tasting and Fun!

@ 7:30PM: Panel with the Brewers!

RSVP here if you plan to attend. No shows will make us frown so please RSVP with care.

    Sounds like fun. Would it be okay if we brought our infant? Promise he won't drink any beer. :)

      21+ is a legal restriction. In Europe you can take your kids to the pub, but not in the US

      It's not at a pub, it's at a PayPal. :)

    @amanda: thank you for affording us with the wonderful opportunity to slake our thirst for beer, and then, as we listened to experts talking about beer, we had the opportunity to continue drinking beer, and verily, our cup was always full~
