Hi again beer fans! And a VERY happy Friday to you all.

Here in the Greater Bay Area we are again celebrating "San Francisco" Beer Week, and it's bigger and better than ever.

If I can somehow find both the money and the energy to go out, there's great beer in a lot of different places this week. Just counting events within about 20 miles of me I have 4 sour beer events, 4 chances to get Pliny the Younger, and special nights featuring Stone, Firestone, Port, Ballast Point, Sierra Nevada, Dogfish Head, Deschutes, and a couple dozen NorCal craft brewers. And the beer ice cream event mentioned last week.

Of course, 5 of those events overlap next Saturday. Even with a driver you could hurt yourself trying to keep up. But this is a chance to try beers I won't see any other time; some of them like PtY made special for Beer Week and not available any other time.

I've got Murphy's Stout here, the draft cans. I'll have one of those before heading off to the homebrew club. What are you drinking? Who's brewing?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
