Just in case you needed an excuse to drink beer, here's a good one.

This Friday marks the beginning of San Francisco's Beer Week. The fest starts with an Opening Gala at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, showcasing special-releases, exclusive beers, and this year's SF Brewers Guild collaborative beers, says the SFist.

The week wraps up on the 20th with a new beer release party from Anchor Brewing, at the newly renovated Zeitgeist, celebrating the brewery's 140th anniversary.

Of the 250+ events, be sure to check out highlights like the Annual Double IPA Festival, the Annual Barleywine Festival, Beer to Brakers bike ride and daily scavenger hunts powered by PubQuest.

There's some sort of beertastic event scheduled every day, so let your boss know you might be a tad tardy one or six days next week.

The full schedule of events can be found the SF Beer Week website.
