/ SILICON VALLEY BEER WEEK HIGHLIGHTS

SAN JOSE'S GROWING CRAFT BREWERS

#sjsmallbusiness

Silicon Valley Beer Week is July 24 through August 1, 2015, highlighting the growing craft brew industry in San Jose with makers hosting events at unique venues, restaurants and breweries throughout the city. According to Business Insider, craft brewers are small, independent, and traditional, and their commitment to innovation and community seems to resonate with beer drinkers. In San Jose, the craft brew industry is growing with five breweries today, up from two in 2013, and others in the works. Silicon Valley Beer Week kicked off in San Jose with several breweries hosting events and tastings, including Gordon Biersch, Strike, Hermitage, and Santa Clara Valley Brewing Company. On Thursday, July 30, ISO will offer San Jose Co-op Brewpub's first public pour, and several others are  hosting events throughout the week. For a schedule of happenings, click here. For more information about San Jose's rising craft brew industry, contact Reena Brilliot, Business Development Officer.
