What we're about

We are a group of social beer drinkers from all over the spectrum. If you are new to craft beer, don't think you like any beer, or can already recite the flavor profile of every hop species, we're the group for you. We hold events of our own design, as well as get a group together to attend events being put on by local breweries and tap rooms (and anyone else, if there's beer!).
Although we focus on events in the South Bay, we occasionally venture forth; SF, the Peninsula, the East Bay, Santa Cruz, AND BEYOND! Feel free to make a suggestion for an activity as well. If there is beer to be had, we'll try and be there!
So come on out to hang out and have some conversations over a pint.
For more social posts, pics, etc, visit our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/groups/867659786657858/ (I'll cross post events to here and there, but discussions and social posting is easier on FB than meetup; if you have an event or location you'd like to schedule, message me (meetup got rid of the thing that let anyone make an event =(.
