Kick off the summer BBQ season at the 2nd Annual SFHG "Tribute to America/Pre-Memorial Day Picnic and BBQ” in Golden Gate Park!

This Meetup is open to paid members of SFHG and their personal guests (e.g., friends and family). If you are not currently a paid member of the SFHG, simply go to to join! Tracking us on Meetup does not make you a member of the SFHG, you’ll need to go to the link above and pay annual dues, but trust us, it’s well worth it - membership has its privileges!

Members will meet at Marx Meadow picnic areas #5 and 6 (which are at the east end of the meadow). Marx Meadow is between 30th Avenue and Transverse Drive on the north side of JFK Drive (near the disc golf course).

SFHG will provide charcoal, plates, cups, etc. --- bring what you like to throw on the grill and a side dish for other brewers to share. If you have a small hibachi-type grill (gas or charcoal) that will sit on top of a picnic table, please bring it to help us increase our grill space. You're also welcomed and encouraged to bring picnic games - beanbag toss, hill-billy golf, badminton, etc. if you like. Kids are welcome - we are in a park after all!

In addition to grilling and hanging out, we'll of course share homebrew, so bring your competition and non-competition beers! Other cool happenings at the picnic …

- We’ll announce the winners of our SFHG Tribute to America Competition (, our second SFHG event in the 2014 SFHG Homebrewer of the Year Competition.

- Attendees will vote for the "Peoples' Choice Award" for the competition beers – this year’s beers will be American Ales (Pale, Amber, and Brown) as well as American Wheat.

- Attendees will also vote for the "Peoples' Choice Award" for all other non-competition style beers that brewers bring to share that day.

This event will take the place of our regularly-scheduled monthly club meeting, so be sure to join us in the park to get your homebrew-fix on for the month of May!

Please NO KEGS as this is against GG Park rules. Again, the picnic is open to our dues-paying SFHG members, not the general public - if you're not a member yet, go to to sign up and join us.

See you in the Park!
