A Chance to Sample Pizza Port Beers in San Francisco

If you’ve heard about beer from Pizza Port in San Diego County, but never had a chance to try the beer, here’s an opportunity.

Craig Wathen, proprietor of the The City Beer Store, 1168 Folsom St., San  Francisco, (415) 505-1033, is now stocking four Pizza Port beers, Wipeout IPA, Lost and Found Abbey Ale (Belgium Red), Avant Garde (Biere de Garde) and Red Barn Ale (Saison).

City Beer has an unusual liquor license. Two people can buy any bottle and share it at the store for the cost of the bottle. In addition, Thursday, from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m., he’ll be pouring Lost and Found, Avanta Garde and Red Barn for $5 for a glass of all three.

As I mentioned in my column today in the Oakland Tribune and other Bay Area newspapers, Ledger’s Liquors, 1399 University Ave., Berkeley, CA., (510) 540-9243.

The reason for this sudden largesse here in Northern California of Tomme Arthur and Pizza Port beers is that Pizza Port bought the old Stone Brewing facility in San Marcos and has begun brewing and bottling beer.
