The 2nd annual Slow Beer Festival, again sponsored by the San Francisco Brewers Guild, will take place on Saturday March 1st.
From the Guild’s website:
Saturday, March 1, 2008, noon-4pm, SF County Fair Building in Golden Gate Park. Tickets: $50 ($75 VIP ticket includes gift bag and a tour of the participating brewery of your choice). Beer tasting of all 8 breweries of the SF Brewers Guild plus Marin Brewing, Russian River Brewing, North Coast Brewing and other local, artisan breweries. Food from Hog Island Oyster Company, Fatted Calf Charcuterie, Harley Farms Goat Cheese, Acme Bread, and more.
The festival is in association with Slow Food San Francisco and Slow Food USA. The slow food movement began in Italy and is a great organization if you love good food. Their philosophy is simple:
Slow Food is good, clean and fair food. We believe that the food we eat should taste good; that it should be produced in a clean way that does not harm the environment, animal welfare or our health; and that food producers should receive fair compensation for their work.
There also more information at the Slow Beer Festival website and tickets can be purchased online, too. See you there.
