Instead of embarking on a post-holiday juice cleanse, we prefer to look ahead to some of the stellar new beers coming out from our favorite local breweries in 2015. Here are six of the brews we’re looking forward to most.
The city on New Year's Day is all about the walking wounded—some folks will spend the day recovering in bed, and others are ready to head back out there and get in the game. For the latter group, here are some places open for New Year's Day brunch. Just don't forget to tip big; your poor server or bartender is probably in worse shape than you.
Per usual, 2014 was another exciting year on the San Francisco restaurant scene.
Some of us here at 7x7 think that cake reigns supreme in the circular desserts category, while others believe the nostalgia, homeyness, and American spirit of pie trumps any layered creation. For the latter of us, we’ve ranked the best in the Bay. Get out your forks, and open your pie hole.
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.
‘Tis the season for spirited sipping, and our favorite San Francisco bars have you covered with ciders, punches, and grogs galore (and even a decadent tipple made with ice cream).
