Got this late note from David Keene at the Toronado in San Francisco:

“Come and celebrate the release of Double Daddy IPA in bottles for the first time from Speakeasy Brewing Wednesday, July 13, 2005 at 6 p.m.

“We will have Double Daddy on draught and in cask form.Also on tap will be a keg of Big Daddy fresh from thebrewery kegged on the 13th. We will be pouring the Maibock, Black Beer,Stout, and Prohibition as well.”

The Toronado is at 547 Haight St. There’s no admission charge.

Here’s another one that fell below my radar until today: Microbreweries Battling Breast Cancer, noon- 5 p.m., this Saturday, July 16, Marin Brewing Co., Larkspur Landing, Corte Madera, CA.

More than 20 local breweries; live music, an outdoor barbecue and a raffle for a Drake Beach Cruiser from Marin Bikes. $20 at the door, advance tickets, $18. Call (415) 461-4677. Benefits the Charlotte Maxwell Complementary Clinic, which serves low income women with cancer.

Brewers call it the “Breast Fest.” An added wrinkle is a special fest beer, being brewing at craft breweries around the bay, based on a recipe from Drake’s Brewing Co., San Leandro. They’re calling it the “Warrior Brew” – a reference to women fighting breast cancer and to the fact that each beer must be made using only Warrior hops. This is a newer, high alpha hop, meaning it’s extremely bitter and not used very often as the only hop in a beer.

Sounds interesting. Be there.
