This is starting to sound like a commercial, but City Beer has an interesting tasting tonight: Vertical tasting of last year’s (2005) North Coast Old Stock Ale in bottles and the new one, just out on tap (and not yet in bottles).

Time is today: Nov. 2, 2006. The place is The City Beer Store, 1168 Folsom St.,San Francisco, CA 94103. (415) 503-1033.

Also, Beer Chef Bruce Paton, executive chef at The Cathedral Hill Hotel in San Francisco, says he has a few seats remaining for the Nov. 10 dinner featuring the beers of Dogfish Head Brewing, Rehoboth Beach and Milton, Del. Founder Sam Calagione will be present. If you’re unfamiliar with Dogfish Head beers, you’re in for a treat.

Check out my posting in October for  the menu, price etc. Contact Bruce at (415) 674-3406 or check out his web site.

By the way, if you work at, own a store/tavern/restaurant in Northern California and plan something interesting, beerwise, let me know. Email: and phone: (510) 915-1180. — William Brand
