With beer week only a few weeks away the bay area is gearing up for all things beer. Here are a few items that might interest you all:
- 21A is about to release any day now a new canned beer. This one is a favorite in the brewpub – Bitter American – a relatively low alcohol session beer with a big punch. It is a “long-overdue tribute to unsung, unwitting heroes everywhere.”
- Pliny the younger is coming out on Friday, February 4th. It is a very special beer as you all know. Here is what the Russian River folks have to say. “We are releasing Pliny the Younger on February 4, 2011! Due to the overwhelming turnout last year, we have made a few changes to enable more beer enthusiasts, like yourself, as well as our regular customers to enjoy some Younger! It will be available on draft in 10oz. pours at our pub from February 4th-17th. We will allocate a certain number of kegs each day in order to last the full 2 weeks. Our employees will not know how many kegs they are getting each day. And they won’t know when we might run out. In addition, there will be NO GROWLERS. The only way to get it to go is in your tummy!“
- A bonus one for you – a great Weekend Sherpa today. Bikes and Brews – sounds mighty fine.
