In 2011, Almanac Beer Company co-founders Jesse Friedman and Damian Fagan released their first beer: a Belgian-style golden ale made with blackberries from the Sebastopol Berry Farm, then barrel aged for 11 months before bottling.

Through all the different craft cocktail crazes that have swept San Francisco over the years, one particular classic beverage rose above the fray—the rickey. Made with nothing more than Cointreau, lime, and soda, this timeless concoction is the perfect cocktail for everything from lazing around on the grass at Dolores Park to toasting the end of the work week at your favorite watering hole. It's refreshing, it's simple, and it's proof that you've officially moved on from your jungle juice days to the finer things in life.
