With San Francisco summer (i.e., September) approaching, bet you wish you could take tasty, seasonal beer to that party at the neighbors’. You’re in luck. As of August 31st, Almanac Beer Co. will have two new, year-round beer offerings, in addition to their limited-release seasonal brews. The Extra Pale Ale features California barley and Mandarin oranges from Blossom Bluff Orchards and is absolutely delicious (we got a taste this weekend at the SF Street Food Festival and j’adored it). The Honey Saison is brewed with the same hops, Marshall’s Farm honey, and local ginger for spice—it’s excellent on a warm summer day with spicy food (again, ask us how we know this). The new beers will be sold in four-packs of 12-ounce bottles at places like BevMo and Whole Foods.
To celebrate the new selections, and their one-year anniversary, Almanac is throwing a party at Bloodhound (music alert!) on Wednesday August 29th from 6pm-9pm. There will be beer specials and free nibbles from Deli Board and 1058 Hoagie—hubba hubba. Bloodhound, 1145 Folsom St. at 7th St.
