Is Don't Call It Frisco going to be more or less the same as last year? That beer was surprisingly excellent.
A big part of it is for growler fills. Ale Arsenal can't fill growlers, and there's a lot of requests for them.
Like Ryan said, Alpha Acid doesn't contract brew and never has. Devil's Canyon has no affiliation with the brewery. The tasting room will be right...
Yeah, not their finest hour, but still decent. Wouldn't go out of my way for it.
Yeah, forget about that Cantillon garbage and get your hands on some nice lacto juice.
Generally no. It's somewhat complicated.
As someone that runs a bar with a rotating selection that leans strongly toward more cutting edge beer,...
That was a painful read. These guys are trying way too hard to be edgy.
We have a rotating cask almost all the time at Ale Arsenal.
Yeah, easily one of the best newer bay area breweries. These guys are criminally underrated.
Cask of Cellarmaker Laces Out with several pounds of wet mosaic stuffed into the cask.
The peninsula/south bay has cheaper lodging. If you stay somewhere close to Caltrain you can pretty easily get into the city.
Had Mastermind this week and found it good but not great. Much like Heady, it's a very yeasty/estery beer. I prefer hoppy beers with more neutral...
Cellarmaker and City Beer are definitely 21 and up only. Actually I think almost every place on your list isn't kid friendly except Russian River.
Devil's Canyon isn't open on Thursdays. Freewheel has tasty English style cask beer, not for everyone but very good for what it is. It's a small...
I liked how the only beer in the set resembling an IPA (Chico King) was already 2 months old by the time the 12 packs hit shelves.
They're all pretty mediocre, except for Electric Ray, which was actually quite bad. Am I the only one completely underwhelmed by these beers?
I know, man. I hate when someone goes through the effort to acquire a product that isn't normally available in my distribution network, and then...
It's here. Tapped a keg today, not super impressed with this batch. Pretty harsh and malty.
Must visit: Cellarmaker, Altamont, Knee Deep.
Must not visit: English Ales, Highway 1, Boulder Creek, pretty much every brewery in SF that isn't...
Enjoy By uses a lot of southern hemisphere hops, which are actually at their freshest right about now.
