Have you visited the City Beer Store, 1168 Folsom St. in San Francisco yet? I highly recommend it. Owner Craig Wathen keeps adding interesting new beers, obtainable only in a few select stores with owners or manager like Craig who understand there’s a growing market for great beer in the Bay Area.

There’s a twist. City Beer has an unusual on-and-off-sale liquor license. You can buy any bottle he has at the regular price and share it with a friend or friends right there.

Tonight (Thursday, Jan. 4, 2007) He’s going to doing an IPA pouring: Acme California IPA, Drakes IPA, and Marin White Knuckle Double IPA light hops to heavy hops. From 5 p.m. until closing, 10 p.m.

New arrivals, Craig adds, include Cantillon Gueze, Kriek, Rose, Iris 2004, Lou Pepe Framboise and Lou Pepe Kriek. These are bone-dry, sour Belgian Lambic beers, which I love, but my are they different.

Also new: Ale Smith IPA and Old Numbskull from Ale Smith, San Diego and Farmhouse Bourbon Barrel-Aged Porter.
