Beer Chat -- 2/6/15

Eno Sarris, February 06, 2015

I'm excited. Finally healthy and headed to San Francisco Beer Week's Opening Gala tonight. Beers from all over the bay area, on my taste buds. I'm not going to spit em out, but I will pour out ones that don't make the cut. And I'll take notes, all professionally. Gotta keep moving! 

Beer week itself is ridiculous. Look at this great schedule that the guild has put together under Brian Stechschulte's great leadership. It's sortable by type, by day, by time... yes. 

I hope to get a hall pass and maybe do a little BeerGraphs meetup during the week. There are so many great events. 276 tap takeovers! Faction in San Carlos! Sour night at Noc Noc! The Bruery, Societe and Rare Barrel all in one place! Firestone Walker at the Rose & Cown in Palo Alto! Alpine, Stone, Lagunitas... everywhere. 

But I gotta plan for tomorrow. See the list of attending brewers below. I'll chew on it and chat about my plan when I've got one, but I'm taking recs if you got 'em. Gotta plan. 

The Week in BeerGraphs

The BeerGraphs Staff Brings A Beer To Your Super Bowl Party

Budweiser makes a politcal ad to inject meaning into their beer.

Budweiser pokes at craft beer nerds and activates a phobia.

Why SF Beer Week is So Special

Gotta read about shirt's sour briefs and wonder about his Sour Bikini.
