A trip to my local good beer store

By Joe Ruvel · July 10th, 2008 · 1 Comment

I went out with a friend last night, drank a good bit, ate some awesome pizza, and then took a bus home. The bus drops me off right in front of my local good beer shop, and it wasn’t too late, so of course I had to “check in” and see if they had anything new. Coit Liquor in the North Beach neighborhood of San Francisco is mostly a wine shop. Despite this fact, they have two and a half coolers full of pretty good beer plus some more beers on the shelf and in back. The beer guy at Coit, Jon St. Vincent, has been working really hard to bring more and more good beer to the shop. When Russian River barrel aged beers came in, he snagged a bunch of them. I can always find a special beer or two there. All of this of course helps me! It’s close to my house and is pretty much on my way home.

Last night was a particularly good score – check it out:

Oh and I hear that they might have Pliny today!
