20th Annual Toronado Barleywine Festival


Feb 16, 2013 – Feb 18, 2013




547 Haight St




San Francisco sure does adore its beer. Scheduled annually during the height of SF Beer Week, the three-day Toronado Barleywine Festival brings some of the country's best right to your doorstep. Barleywine is fermented longer than your average beer and tends to be burly, strong, and high in alcohol content. For the 20th straight year, the Haight's Toronado has hand-selected an entire beer menu's worth of barleywines for local taste buds. Past festival winners have included Alaska's Glacier Brewhouse, Paso Robles' Firestone Walker, and our very own Lagunitas Brewing Company. Who'll win this year? Drink up and be the judge.

We will release a limited amount of Russian River Pliny the Younger at opening during SF Beerweek.
