Beer and wine in the Bay Area and beyond

We truly live in Beer Nirvana

As regular readers of this blog know, I’ve been scouting for good beer pubs in the South Bay. It’s been a difficult search. Lots of corporate beer down there: InBev, Guinness, Scottish & Newcastle. It’s strange, pubs don’t seem to tap the wealth of good craft beer available, from local brewers like Gordon Biersch, Firestone Walker and Sonoma County brewers like Bear Republic. Did see a bit of Lagunitas, mostly the IPA.

It’s been a sobering hunt and it’s far from over, but to remind myself that we live in a true beer nirvana in the northern Bay Area, at least, I checked the offerings of three local pubs. These are just the draft beers available. Check out the next three posts and remember, we have lots more: Lanesplitter, Luka’s, Bistro, Barclay’s, Jupiter, Albatross, Ben & Nicks, Cato’s Ale Hose, Pete’s Brass Rail, Hoptown...the mind reels.
