SF Beer Week 2013 Update: New Events Posted for Beer Revolution and La Trappe Cafe
Over the past few days, La Trappe Cafe in San Francisco and Beer Revolution in Oakland announced several events taking place during SFBW 2013, a celebration of craft beer beginning Friday, February 8th, through Sunday, February 17th.
Here is a link to La Trappe Cafe’s events (which are also now listed on the SFBW 2013 Official Schedule). Events include the opportunity be among the first in San Francisco to taste the Elysian / New Belgium Collaboration “Trip 15″ (which I think is actually “Trip XV”, the 15th beer in a series of collaborations between the two breweries) and 15 different Zymatores on draft! Depending on the event, you may need to purchase tickets in advance. See the link above for further details.
