at [1]21st Amendment Brew Pub in San Francisco, CA.

21st Amendment's [2]selection of beer includes their own delightful
brews, and a fair selection of guest brews. They have a full [3]food
menu and I can personally recommend the sweet potato straws and the
grilled Monterey Bay squid.  Festivities will start at 6:00pm and
continue until we've all left.

Directions to 21st Amendment can be found on their [4]directions page.
They're about a fifteen minute walk down 2nd St. from the Montgomery
BART station.

sig-beer-west sign.  We will try to make it obvious who we are. :-)

Note:  Please look for the sig-beer-west sign, not for a particular
       person.  sig-beer-west may have different hosts from month to

sig-beer-west FAQ

1. Q: Your announcement says "techies and their friends".  How do I
      know if I'm a techie, or a friend of one?

   A: Well, actually, you don't have to be a techie to attend.  You
      just have to be able to find the sig-beer-west sign at this
      month's event.  That's it!  Simple, huh?

2. Q: I'm not really a beer person.  In fact I'm interested in hanging
      out, but not in drinking.  Would I be welcome?

   A: Absolutely!  The point is to hang out with fun, interesting
      folks.  Please do join us.

3. Q: Is parking difficult in the city, like maybe I should factor
      this into my travel time?

   A: Yes.

      Note for January 2004:  21st Amendment is a fifteen minute walk
      from Montgomery BART.  You may want to consider [6]BARTing and
      not worrying at all about parking.

sig-beer-west was started in February 2002 when a couple Washington,
D.C. based systems administrators who moved to the San Francisco Bay
area wanted to continue a [7]dc-sage tradition, sig-beer, which is
[8]described in dc-sage web space as:

  SIG-beer, as in "Special Interest Group - Beer" ala ACM, or as in
  "send the BEER signal to that process".

  The original SIG-beer gathering takes place in Washington DC,
  usually on the first Saturday night of the month.
