Hi William, I ran across your What’s on Tap blog online and I was wondering if you knew where I could find bare-knuckle-stout-neon-sign.jpgBare Knuckle Stout in San Francisco? Please let me know!
Thanks, Arlene

Hi Arlene. Bad news for now. Only two places where Bare Knuckle’s available — Anheuser-Busch says – is in San Diego and San Marcos (which is in San Diego, County). I’m going to check with the A-B brewery in Fairfield tomorrow. But for today,that’s the word. Oh yes, A-B in St. Louis said it’s not canned or bottled; it’s only on draft at pubs and restaurants. People are comparing it to Guinness Stout. Gotta’ check it out myself. best. wb.

    I actually tried Bare Knuckle Stoute here in San Diego @ Sea World Marine Park…they have an Anheiser Busch brewery inside the park. Its really tasty and very similar to Guiness Stout!

  • William Brand

    Question Jimmy. Does it have that sour edge at the finish that you get with Guinness?

    Bare Knuckle Stout is great, to bad it is only available in sea world san diego. i guess i will have to pay to get into the park, put the beer in a bag (lol) and take what i can…..

    I had bare knuckle at sea world in Orlando, Fl. Since then Iv’e been trying to locate the stout here in Raleigh, NC. I managed to find one place that has it on tap off Six Forks Rd at Restorante Cinelli. It would be nice for other pubs and bars to add bare knuckle to their inventory of beer selection and offer it as an alaternative to Guinness.

    Gee Blake…there are so many great craft brewer stouts on the East Coast,why look for one from Anheuser-Busch? Haven’t tasted it myself. Understand it;s a well-made, OK stout, but nothing spectacular.

  • Blake

    What other good brews similar to Guinness do you suggest? The only other I’ve found is Boddingtons, which is really great, but not as good as Guinness.\

    they also carry it at Blondie’s inside the Planet Hollywood Casino in Las Vegas. Had it last night, I was quite pleased.
