Sudsy socials have been rebounding, cropping up all over the county for several weeks, but on Friday a favorite, San Diego Beer Week, returns for its 12th year.

The celebration of more than 150 independent craft breweries around San Diego County begins with the virtual Kick-Off Toast on Friday, with dozens more fun things to be found on the Beer Week event page.

Paige McWey Acers, executive director of the San Diego Brewers Guild, called Beer Week, which continues through Nov. 14, “a staple event in our community” that gives “tourists and locals alike an opportunity to explore all the delicious, innovative offerings” on tap in the region.
