The 14th Annual San Diego Beer Week, presented by the San Diego Brewers Guild, begins Friday, November 4th!

A virtual kick-off toast will occur at all Guild member breweries at 7:00 that night. Photos of toasts being posted on all social media platforms should use the hashtags #SDBeer and #SDBW22.

Guild Fest, the official kick-off event for the 14th Annual San Diego Beer Week celebration of the local independent craft beer industry, is Saturday, November 5 at Surf Sports Park in Del Mar.

First in-person Guild Fest since 2019

Guild Fest had been held downtown since its inception in 2005, beginning at the WorldBeat Center in Balboa Park. This will be the first in-person Guild Fest since 2019, when more than 2,000 beer enthusiasts attended.

Individual breweries will host events and have beer specials throughout Beer Week, all of which are posted on the Brewers Guild’s calendar.
