Now that SF Beer Week feels like a distant memory, it’s time to welcome more excuses to drink more beer. The Brewing Network’s ninth annual Spring Brews Festival returns to Concord with more than 60 craft breweries in attendance. Tickets get you unlimited pours from top local breweries such as The Rare Barrel and Drake’s Brewing Company as well as award-winning breweries from slightly further afield like Alvarado Street Brewery, Russian River Brewing Company, and Societe Brewing Company. Your money will also go toward a good cause — proceeds will benefit the Todos Santos Business Association Arts Foundation, which raises money for local youth music programs. Conveniently located just a few blocks from BART, the event will take over the entire Todos Santos Plaza, a grassy, tree-lined park in the center of downtown.
