On a Mission for BBQ & Brew
Little pairs better with barbeque than beer, and this month's Meet the Brewers night host, Southpaw BBQ (2170 Mission St.) is readly to prove that point.
Not only will they have some great 'que to pair, but Southpaw brewer Ross Halligan will be holding court at 6:30pm for a Brewer Q&A when he'll talk about his homebrewing experience, about becoming a professional brewer at Southpaw, and his involvement in the Sirwisa Brewing Collective, a nonprofit that bring together pro- and homebrewers for collaborations, which get released at local fundraisers like the upcoming Beers, Bites & Bounty event on Oct. 26.
MTB activities aside, at 6:30pm, the #DrinkSFBeer shuttle will be looping between:
At Alamo Drafhouse, there will be a SFBG Tap Takeover going down at the Bear Vs Bull bar just off the lobby, showcasing beers from members who contract brew or are not on our 2017 shuttle routes:
- Fort Point Beer Co.
Headlands Brewing Co.
Holy Craft Brewery
Pine Street Brewery
San Francisco Brewing Co.
Sufferfest Brewing Co.
** Beer release highlights:
English Barley Wine -- aged in a Corbin Cash Sweet Potato Liqueur barrel
Gold Rush Lager -- one of the first local beers made from malt produced at newly launched Admiral Maltings
Old Bus Tavern
Chimera Hoppy Brown Ale -- a new dark and roasty brew, dry-hopped with Simcoe and Amarillo to add a danky citrus punch
Rachel's Fig & Honey Saison -- rewed with peak-season figs and honey from Mendocino County, this wedding beer (tapped at brewer Ben Buchanan's recent nuptials) is worth crashing a party for
Smooch -- a bright berry blonde sour aged in oak with 10+ pounds of raspberries per barrell; jelly on the nose with a clean, tingly tart finish
Dance Life Lager -- a mixed fermentation "wild" lager using Brett. C, described as "a power-pop pilsner, shimmering with Citra hops, and intense stonefruit character" (think peach, plum, plus pineapple)
Bourbon Barrel Pêche -- swapping out last year's brandy barrels for Breckingridge and Four Roses bourbon barrels, this mixed fermentation farmhouse ale comingled with 3 pounds per gallon of Blossom Bluff Orchard’s White Snow and Fay Elberta peaches and Almanac's house sour culture to produce a beer laced sweet vanilla notes and rich bourbon on the finish.
The #DrinkSFBeer shuttle is FREE., stopping every 5-10 min. Just hop on, hop off at any stop (no need to reserve a seat).
