Drink of the week: curry stout at Sycamore

Have you guys noticed that Sycamore cycles more great beers through their handful of taps than most bars with multiple times capacity? Two new brews just came online, Dogfish Head Indian Brown Ale and Ballast Point Indra Kunindra Stout. I initially read the Dogfish as “India” Brown Ale, thinking it was going to be some funky hopped brown. In fact, it was a good but pretty middle of the road brown ale.

The stout, on the other hand, is kind of a doozy. Starts out like a bottle of Yoohoo, but the richness quickly fades into a weird bright coconut curry and ends with spice and black pepper. Not as much of a gutbuster as your ordinary craft stout, which is a good thing.

Here’s to Sycamore for its clearly evident hatred of boring beer. And good job picking another winner.

    Why, yes — yes, I have… and it pisses me off that I rarely get to taste a great beer more than once from their taps. Next week, VOOM, gone! And I have to choose between another selection of brews I don’t know, which may or may not be to my liking. It is frustrating, I have to say.

    The Sycamore is consistently one of the best bars in the Mission!

      Disagree! They seem like charming folks (well, the owners anyway), but the patio has a depressing Iron Curtain vibe, the room is claustrophobic, and without a full liquor license, well, it’s only part of a bar. I want to love it, as it’s steps away from home, but I only tolerate it.

    hoodia gordonii is a particular variety of plant which suppresses the appetite. hoodia by reducing the excess fat reduces the incidence of these dreadful diseases in the obese people. the san african bushmen made the plant popular as a very effective suppressant for food cravings.
