Beer lovers here have it pretty sweet. With 19 San Francisco brewers and dozens of craft beer bars in a 49-square-mile city, you’re never far from a world class beer. Those who appreciate a challenge can find it though, by seeking out special brews and events that are available in limited quantities, or at special times of year, or only if you know someone with inside information.

We’re glad you asked! There are a bevy of companies in San Francisco offering up liquid nourishment in the name of clearer skin and cleaner bowels and and overall euphoric feeling (no matter how short-lived). Our editors were willing guinea pigs for eight local cleanses. Did we survive?

Fred Acebo of Monarch

After sampling ten craft rickey cocktails from San Francisco's top bartenders, our readers have spoken, and we have a winner!
