The Bay Bridge is closed this holiday weekend, but you can still find some Beer Week events in the East Bay.
Pyramid Alehouse in Berkeley hosts Beer Judging 101 Sunday at noon and 2:30 P.M. Much like wine has sommeliers, beer has grand masters. At the tasting and judging, learn how to evaluate, perceive and describe different types of beer. Tickets are $30 and include all beers and materials.
Down the road, Celebrator hosts its anniversary party and Beer Week closing event at Trumer Brauerei from 4 to 8 P.M. Over 35 Bay Area-heavy breweries will pour including 21st Amendment Magnolia and Stone Brewing Co. Tickets are $50 in advance and $70 at the door (if available), and includes tastings and catering by Jack's Prime BBQ.
