Good Beer and good times for a good cause,
since 1984.

Since 1984, the San Francisco International Beer Festival has raised money for the Telegraph Hill Cooperative Nursery School. The proud parents of Tel-Hi’s preschool students plan, host, and staff the entire event. They donate their time and effort to bring you this historic festival-the oldest beer festival on the west coast.

SFIBF is the sole fundraiser for the Telegraph Hill Cooperative Nursery School. With this festival, we raise enough money to cover 90 percent of the preschool’s operating expenses, allowing us to keep tuition affordable in an increasingly expensive city.

Our families thank you and our kids thank you. For more details and information on the co-op and this fundraiser, click here. Now, join our email list and we will let you in on any news and special promotions.
