Sounds fun. Too bad they don't include wine or non-alcoholic beverages for the people who don't drink beer.

The event is called, "Micro-brews by the Mission". It's intent is to showcase microbrews and the participating venues to help promote business and visibility. You can enjoy wine and non-alcoholic drinks at these locations during this event as well. That's what I do since I don't really drink beer either. It's still a fun event whether or not you drink the Micro-brews and a great time to enjoy the company of friends.
