Local Spots for Beer Week

It’s officially beer week in the Bay Area. What started in San Francisco, has made its way to the Peninsula and there are plenty of local spots where you can find specialty beers, from sours to stout.

Ghostwood Beer Co.

The newly opened Ghostwood Beer Co. is releasing new beers this weekend and through the week. The brewery is kid and dog friendly — and outside food is welcome! Check out their Facebook page for the details.

Freewheel Brewing Company

Redwood City’s Freewheel Brewing Co. hosts the Firkin Friends Fest, which is a mini Cask Ale Festival with nine other breweries. For a more hands on experience home brewers can register for the 3rd Annual Battle of Brew Clubs, where the winners will get to brew their recipe on Freewheel’s in-house system.
