Discover the unique tropical plant collection of the Conservatory through the lens of craft brews

The Bay Area’s finest craft brew masters set up shop monthly at our Victorian greenhouse, telling the tall tales of botanical brewing and proffering their delicious elixirs.

The evening commences in the Conservatory as guests meander our verdant, humid pathways with a craft brew in hand.  As day turns to night, the Conservatory of Flowers becomes a blank canvas for Photosynthesis, a series of artistic illuminations on the Conservatory’s iconic façade. Enjoy luminosity, great music, curated food trucks and beer and wine service hosted by We Bring The Bar.
