Every beer tells a story—and this week—NightLife follows the brewing process from botanical inception to foamy finish. Hear from local beer and spirit masters, chat with flora-connoiseurs from the SF Botanical Garden, and drink your way through a pop-up beer garden with a dozen of local breweries.

SCHEDULE OF EVENTS

The Beer "Garden"
(East Garden)

6:00 - 9:45pm, Sip your way through a pop-up beer garden with a dozen local breweries including:

Learn how science has inspired (and flavored) the art and craft of brewing with informal botany lessons courtesy of the SF Botanical Garden and check out the botanicals used to make SF's favorite drink, Fernet-Branca.

Plus, be sure to treat your tastebuds to NightLife’s signature craft beer Aliciella Bitter, brewed by Magnolia Brewing Co. with plant types found on the museum’s living roof.

Note: Beer tasting tickets are available for purchase in the East Garden. No cash will be accepted at tasting tables, only beer tickets.
