With four days under my belt for SF Beer Week, I’m now behind in everything except having a great time. I thought before I get even more behind that I’d share some of photos from the first few days, which in order to get up quicker are just below in their individual slideshows from Flickr. Below are individual slideshows from several events during SF Beer Week. They’re best viewed in full screen. To view it that way, after clicking on the arrow in the center to start the slideshow, click on the button on the bottom right with the four arrows pointing outward on it, to see the photos in glorious full screen. Once in full screen slideshow mode, click on “Show Info” to identify each photo.

Bummed that I missed seeing Judy at Russian River. Looks like she’s doing well.

Keep ’em coming Jay. In an unfortunate turn of events, I’ll only be joining you “virtually” this year. Cheers and best wishes for a great remaining 4 days & nights of SFBW!
