#SongsToSIPby Series to Uplift Bay Area Communities, and Local Music and Craft Beer Scenes

SAN FRANCISCO – Monday, May 11, 2020 — For American Craft Beer Week® (May 11-17), the Bay Area Brewers Guild, The Bay Bridged and their respective members want to give thanks and celebrate the resiliency of Bay Area area communities. 

Starting Wednesday, May 13, through Sunday, May 15, local musicians will perform lunch-time Facebook Live sessions in collaboration with favorite local craft breweries, with a nod to hard-hit local music and craft beer scenes as they strive, survive and help Bay Area residents re-establish community and find its collective voice again. 

Ben Morrison of The Brothers Comatose, who paired with Fieldwork Brewing Co. as they celebrate a collaboration beer release called “Old Technology,” headlines this special #SongsToSIPby Series, which is uniting musicians and breweries across the Bay: San Francisco, East Bay, Silicon Valley, North Bay and down the Coast. Other musician-brewery pairings include:

Andre Thierry – East Brother Beer Co King Willow – Woods Beer Co. Down Dirty Shake – Seismic Brewing Co. The Coffis Brothers – Humble Sea Brewing Co. Alvie and the Breakfast Pigs – Ferment.Drink.Repeat Socorra – Camino Brewing Co. & Clandestine Brewing Co. United Defiance – Calicraft Brewing Co. Nicco Weisskoff – Fogbelt Brewing Co.

The week’s line up — and launching-off point for musicians’ live streams — can be found at DrinkBayBeer.com, the brewers guild’s year-round craft beer discovery site.

Running May 11-17, American Craft Beer Week® is an annual national holiday dating back to 2006, organized by the Brewers Association and promoted at CraftBeer.com, and founded to celebrate craft beer and the millions of beer lovers, independent breweries, and craft beer retailers across the country.
