Meet the Bay Area Brewers
The Bay Area Brewers Guild is proud to provide this resource for discovering and celebrating local independent craft beer and craft breweries — all part of a thriving regional craft beer scene.
The Bay Area is one of the world's richest craft beer regions because it's home to some of the best brewers on the planet. It's a region of pioneers and trailblazers, of the adventurous, the idiosyncratic, and the passionate. Diversity and camaraderie define the craft beer culture here, and are woven directly into the guild's mission.
Here, you'll find brewery profiles, beer to-go links, release info, event listings, custom merch, and much more, including resources for sharing and planning your beer explorations. Drink Bay Beer is a perfect launching off point for your exploration of the Bay Area's mighty craft beer scene and those breweries in your back yard.

Let's be emphatically clear -- There is absolutely no place in our region, in this guild, or in our industry for misogyny, inequality, racism, sexism or any other "-ism" that disempowers, abuses or treats individuals differently. The Bay Area Brewers Guild, along with the national Brewers Association and other industry leaders, is bringing online tools and resources to support members in routing out bad behavior and ensuring workplaces and tasting rooms are safe, inclusive and respectful of all.
