What Will They Come Up With Next?!

Yesterday, I worked at the High Water Brewing booth at the annual fundraiser Breastfest in San Francisco. A company created two icy beers that were intended to place at the top of your beer to help keep it cold. They offered two flavors, both stout, and pomegranate. I did not try it, but saw several…

Speakeasy 17th Anniversary Party

On June 28th, I had the privilege of attending the Speakeasy 17th Birthday Party in San Francisco. There was an array of beers that I had never seen outside of the brewery, or specialty festivals. Set in the outside parking lot of the brewery, with several food trucks, and/or carts- it was perfectly paired with…

Cheers for Beers!

Happy Saturday! I’m so excited to have a day off, and K is up brewing with Ruhstaller today, so I’ve got some free time today. My household chore list is pretty lengthy, so I’ll be opening up my growler of Pliny the Elder, and getting domestic! What beer would you pair with laundry? Hope everyone…

Sf Beer Week ’14

Unfortunately this year, I was not able to go to nearly as many of events as I did in years past. This was a record-high year for them, with over 600 events, and it always seemed to be expanding. This year, I was not able to enjoy Pliny the Younger, go to any new brewery…

My November Favorites

Another month flew by, and the beers were always plentiful. Like many others, I was introspective on what I was thankful for. I just recently celebrated an anniversary with a wonderful man who encourages my love for beer blogging, with surprises of hard to find bottles, takes photos for me (I have shaky hands!), and…

My September Favorites

October is here, the government is shutdown, and there’s now plenty of pumpkin flavored goodies to appease us all. Looking back on this past month, we saw a lot of (perhaps too early) releases of pumpkin beers, and lots of (right on time) fresh/wet hop beers. Here are my five favorites: 1. Ruhstaller Hop Sac…

Almanac’s Fresh Hop Single IPA Series

This weekend, I had the privilege to sample all three of Almanac’s new fresh hop single IPAs, like Ruhstaller, they used hops from the local Kuchinski hop farm. All three are 7.5 percent, and feature a different hop varietal. I personally enjoyed one more than the other two. The Chinook was definitely my favorite out…

The BreastFest

I went out to Breastfest in San Francisco, a beer festival that also is a fundraiser for a local breast cancer support center. Over 30 breweries, with all you can eat bites at the Fort Mason Center, is the recipe for a great day. One of my favourites was Headland’s Double IPA, and I also…

Tour of Anchor Brewing in San Francisco

Yesterday, as a graduation present, I booked a tour for my boyfriend, his family, and myself a tour for Anchor Brewing in San Francisco. I have already done this tour, but knew he would love the experience. From their tap room, to the fermentors, to the bottling, everything is beautiful, well kept and pristine. There…

Baseball and Craft Brewing

Can I just say how jealous I get when I read articles of baseball stadiums boasting their vast selection of local craft brews. From the Mariners to the Reds, they have WONDERFUL beers available on tap. There’s nothing more American in my book, than a cold brew at a baseball game. Now, as a huge…
