San Jose has been quietly but steadily developing a great craft beer scene the last couple years, and we're ready to show it off to the greater bay area! Join us for a guided tour of some of our favorite bars, conveniently clustered in the downtown area and easily accessible from public transit. We'll have discounts on selected beers, lots of food options, and be visiting several diverse venues.
If you're in the city or elsewhere in the bay area, consider making it down for the afternoon! We've timed the event to be convenient to the Caltrain bullet, which is one hour SF-to-San Jose. See the transportation options below.
• 1:30 Market Beer Co. - bombers, pints, and plenty of food choices from San Pedro Market Square vendors - $1 off drafts
• 2:45 ISObeers - the highly-awaited new bar from the man behind south bay craft beer institution Bobby’s Liquors - 10% off
• 4:00 Good Karma - eclectic beer and great vegan food (carnivore approved!)
• 5:15 Original Gravity - our old favorite, San Jose’s original craft beer bar with ever-rotating interesting taps, and light pub fare - selected beer discounts
Downtown San Jose is readily accessible on public transit.
Caltrain: take the 802 bullet to San Jose/Diridon and walk <20 minutes to Market Beer Co.

Market Beer Co. is in the building at the corner of N Almaden Ave and W St John St. This building is behind and across the courtyard from the main part of San Pedro Market Square.
We have a limited number of spots on the pub crawl. If you sign up but aren't able to attend, change your RSVP to “no” to free up your spot.
If you're on the waiting list, keep an eye out to see if you get moved to the attendee list. We often have cancellations up to day-of for events like this.
