Local hop-head David Enos hipped us to this new brew:

There is a new dog in town, hailing from Sonoma County – this is not a lap dog we have here. He is the dog that bites you in a hateful way and does not let go until you say “Uncle”.

Drink of the Week: Ferrari shots

Half Fernet, half Campari. All good.

Drink of the Week: Shot of Chartreuse with a creamy root beer back

Old Bus Tavern, man. Do it.

I’m not gonna be able to walk past that place without popping in for a round of these. (And probably the cheeseburger too.)

Drink of the Week: Baby Daddy

I’d never seen a can with a different color top before. Pretty trippy.

Drink of the Week: Anchor Liberty Ale

Yesterday I drank the second half of a bottle of Liberty that had been sitting open on my kitchen table since Tuesday afternoon — and it was absolutely delicious. How many beers could you say that about? I reckon not many.

Everybody’s so gaga over Anchor California Lager these days, but hopefully not at the expense of good ‘ol Liberty, a true San Francisco original:

The champagne-like bubbles, distinctive hop bouquet, and balanced character of Liberty Ale® revives centuries-old ale brewing traditions that are now more relevant than ever. First introduced in 1975, Liberty Ale® is brewed strictly according to traditional craft brewing methods, and uses only natural ingredients — pale malted barley, fresh whole-cone Cascade hops and a special top-fermenting yeast, and water.

The yeast used during fermentation produces many of Liberty Ale’s subtle flavors and characteristics. A natural process called “bunging” creates gentle carbonation, and the practice of dry hopping (adding fresh hops to the brew during aging), revived by Anchor, creates its unique aroma.

Liberty Ale® was first brewed to celebrate the bicentennial of Paul Revere’s historic ride. As the first modern American IPA brewed after prohibition and the first modern American single-hop ale and dry-hopped ale, Anchor’s Liberty Ale® is the original craft brewed ale and the historic beer that started a revolution.

Drink of the Week: Spaghetti

Drink of the Week: Floating on a Cloud

Float a little Fernet on top of a pint of Anchor Flying Cloud Stout. It’s a variation on the San Francisco classic The Bottom of the Bay. Dark and stormy.

Drink of the Week: Jello shots at Chino (eaten with chopsticks)

They contain gin, sloe gin, apricot and lime, and they’re real fun to try to pick up and transfer to your gullet.
