What SF Brewers Have on Tap for Strong Beer Month

What's SF Brewers Have On Tap for Strong Beer Month

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.

Local Beers to Pair With Your Memorial Day BBQ Feasts

In addition lacing up your White Buck Oxfords, Memorial Day weekend is also the time to officially scrub down and fire up the grill. And while there is season enough to put a flame under eggplant slices, skewered tofu, marinated portabellas, and the like, for this weekend I want a slab of something substantial, sentient even. But what brew to serve? I went deep to some local experts and got the following beer pairing recommendations for 2011’s opening salvo in the war on underindulgence: 

If You're Grilling: Beef, Sausages, Ribs

Pair it With: 21st Amendment's North Star Red (an American Amber Ale) or Back in Black (a black IPA) or Magnolia Pub & Brewery's Spud Boy IPA

Support Our NorCal Brews in the Washington Post's Beer Madness

It's bracket season-- that special time of year when everyone, down to the President himself, is filling out their NCAA tournament picks for the office betting pool. While most of us can't influence the outcome of the Final Four, there's another March faceoff in which everyone gets a say: the Washington Post's annual Beer Madness competition. Last year's Beer Madness spanned the globe, but 2011's tourney is exclusively focused on American craft brews, meaning more of Northern California's finest get to compete.

Belgian Style Meets SF Beer at Magnolia and 21st Amendment

There may be an awesome beer dinner going on this Saturday at Ana Mandara, but it's worth pointing out that there's some beyond-the-ordinary awesomness also happening at two of our city's finest breweries.

21st Amendment's Spring Tweet: A Beer to Tweet About

Twitter has reached new heights this morning—21st Amendment brewer Shaun O'Sullivan is live-tweeting (is that an oxy-moron?) the brewing process of his latest creation: a spring ale made with floral, spicy hops, a brew he called "light, refreshing and drinkable"—in other words, perfect for spring. After soliciting name suggestions from his twitter feed followers (go on, follow it now!) they finally settled on a name, Spring Tweet. Ah, shucks. All day today Shaun will be posting pictures and step-by-step updates; I suggested that for his next beer, he let his followers help make decisions, via tweets, at critical junctures. What type of malt to use? What type of hops?
