Although we’re in the middle of SF Beer Week, we’re also near the midpoint of Strong Beer Month. To help you better plan your itineraries for both, it seemed like a good time to check in with the strong beer brewers to see how their supplies of the heavyweights are holding up.

You could always try to sell them on eBay, or at some trade-in site. But the problem is that unless you’re already a proficient user of eBay, or similar sites, the process of auctioning off goods is not all that intuitive, and can easily turn into a time-sink. Now, there's an easier way.
Now that 7x7 is firmly settled in its new South Park HQ, I've gotten over the shock of suddenly having fewer lunch options tempting me each and every midday than we did in our old Union Square offices.
