2019 San Jose Beers Made By Walking

Salt Pond BMBW Hike in San Jose, CA

  • Info about the July 14 BMBW tapping coming soon

The San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles (SJMQT) has teamed up with BMBW and three local breweries for a public hike on May 11th along the area of the South Bay Salt Ponds near San Jose. The hike is free and open to the public, but registration is required.

Hikers will be accompanied by local craft brewers from Camino Brewing, Clandestine Brewing, and Uproar Brewing. After gaining inspiration from the walk, the breweries are tasked with creating new hike-inspired beers that will tap later this summer. These place-based beers serve as drinkable, landscape portraits of the trail.

The hike takes place on May 11th, from 10:00am-12:30pm along the trail of the South Bay Salt Pond Restoration Project at the Don Edwards SF Bay National Wildlife Refuge. Led by Dave Helsing, the Restoration Project’s executive project manager, hikers and brewers will learn about the largest tidal wetland restoration project on the West Coast and about the native and invasive plants that inhabit the area. The water-based theme of the hike coincides with the San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles exhibition H2Oh!, which runs April 20th-July 14th.

For those who aren’t able to attend the hike but want to taste the beers--the beers will be served during a special tapping event at the Museum on July 14th, from 3:00-5:00pm. More information will be available soon. Visit the SJMQT website for updates.
