I just have to start by saying all of the following pictures are blatantly stolen from the Dr. Mookie Love Blog .
And Happy SF Beer Week! Its a wonderful time of year when beer enthusiast can gather and drink and nerd out. We started off by attending Beer Talk, which is like Ted Talks but with more drinking. There were 7 speakers from various breweries, all of whom brought yummy things for us to drink while discussing important beer issues. Of all the beverages consumed my favorites above all were from 50/50, their bourbon barrel porter, Eclypse; and Anchors first IPA in 75 years. Deeeeelightful.
We headed out and off to the east bay to check out the Sierra Nevada Torpedo Room!
We tried some lovely brews, and as usual my favorite was a high octain barrel aged beauty. We also hit up Elevation 66, to try the Double Rye PA I helped brew a few weeks ago! Its really good, and they also had on tap the Barrel aged version of the Scotch Ale. So good!!
Sunday we hot up Steep brewery and tap room for Anchors Debute of the above mentioned IPA. We got to meet the brewers and chat them up.
From there we headed to a fundraiser for our brew guilds master, he's trying to open a nano brewery and tap room!! People from the guild brought beers for people to try, all of which were really nice, the stand outs were a California Common by Jen and a Coco Brown. Oh, and there was Poutine!!
