Friday marks the beginning of San Francisco Beer Week--the annual tradition where the city briefly shakes off its wine quaffing image and revels in the craft brewing revolution that's been fermenting in the Bay Area's sudsy underbelly for decades.

Also, it gives thousands of people the opportunity to get real drunk off delicious beers they've never heard of before.

This year's festival, presented by the San Francisco Brewers Guild, features over 400 events all across the Bay Area featuring hundreds of breweries, micro-breweries and nano-breweries.

No matter what your beer drinking itch, there's sure to be something at SF Beer Week guaranteed to scratch it.

Check out some of the Beer Week events we're most looking forward to:

People always like to mix cheese with wine, which is fine and all, but it misses half the story. For every creamy brie walking hand in hand with a smooth Pinot Noir, there's a smoked cheddar that wants to roundhouse kick that brie in the face, slam down on a grimy bar stool and start pounding beers. For all the beer swilling cheese nibblers out there, the American Grilled Cheese Kitchen is teaming up with Firestone Walker Brewing Company for two consecutive Sundays of gourmet, five-course, cheese-stuffed meals complete with expertly selected beer pairings. -Aaron Sankin
