  Within the 18,000 square foot big top tent will be the 40+ West
  Coast microbreweries participating in this Beer Tasting Event,
  offering more than 150 unique beers.  Tasting kits, which include a
  festival mug and eight tasting tokens, will be available for a $20

  The first fourteen years has seen an outpouring of support from the

Normally, sig-beer-west festivities start at 6:00 pm.  But this month,
festivities will start at 1:00 pm, and continue until ???.  There is
music scheduled at the Festival as early as 11:00 am that day, so
anyone wanting to spend sometime at the festival before the start of
sig-beer-west can show up at 11:00 to listen.  The last musical event
is schedule for 9:00 pm that day.

When you show up, you should look for some kind of home made
sig-beer-west sign.  We will try to make it obvious who we are. :-)
Note:  Please look for the sig-beer-west sign, not for a particular
person.  sig-beer-west may have different hosts from month to month.

Everyone is welcome at this event.  We mean it!  Please feel free to
forward this information and to invite friends, co-workers, and
others (all of legal drinking age) who might enjoy lifting a glass
with interesting folks from all over the place.

before you forget!)  sig-beer-west occurs on the third Saturday of
each month.

sig-beer-west FAQ

1.  Q: Your announcement says "techies and their friends".  How do I
       know if I'm a techie, or a friend of one?

    A: Well, actually, you don't have to be a techie to attend.  You
       just have to be able to find the sig-beer-west sign at this
       month's event.  That's it.  Simple, huh?

2.  Q: I'm not really a beer person.  In fact I'm interested in hanging
       out, but not in drinking.  Would I be welcome?

    A: Absolutely!  The point is to hang out with fun, interesting
       folks.  Please do join us.

3.  Q: Is parking difficult, like maybe I should factor this into my
       travel time?

    A: Usually, but the earlier you arrive, the better your chances of
       finding a spot.

4.  Q: I've been thinking about attending sig-beer-west for some time
       now.  Maybe I should start with this event?

    A: Yes!!

sig-beer-west was started in February 2002 when a couple Washington,
D.C. based systems administrators who moved to the San Francisco Bay
area wanted to continue a [45]dc-sage tradition, sig-beer, which is
described in dc-sage web space as:

  SIG-beer, as in "Special Interest Group - Beer" ala ACM, or as in
  "send the BEER signal to that process".

  The original SIG-beer gathering takes place in Washington DC,
  usually on the first Saturday night of the month.
