Dogfishhead 90 Minute IPADogfish Head’s off-centered ales for us off-centered people are truly coming to the Bay Area next week,

Bob Stahl, of DBI Beverage Inc. (used to be Golden Brands), the San Francisco distributor, says DBI has distribution for SF, Santa Clara County, Napa, Solano, Mendicino, Lake, Sacramento, San Joaquin, Yolo, Sutter, Yuba and El Dorado counties.

“We are just beginning distribution as we just received the product. Whole Foods, Bev Mo and other independent retailers will start receiving product deliveries next week,” Stahl says.

In May, Morris Disributing begins distribution in Marin and Sonoma counties.

But what about us over here in the East Bay? I’ll use an old Navy expression: We’re S.O.O.L. Translation: We’re neglected and ignored AGAIN. Damn.

One sure place to sample Dogfish wares will be Monday, April 21, beginning at 6 p.m. at the Toronado, 547 Haight St. in San Francisco.

Here’s an update from DBI on the beers they’re pouring: 90 Minute IPA, Midas Touch, Palo Santo Marron, Olde School, Immort Ale, Chateau Jiahu.

“The last three styles are just being brought in for the kick off party so the initial styles to be distributed will be 90 Minute, Midas touch and Palo Santo Marron.,” Stahl says.

    I wonder why they don’t distribute to San Mateo County? It’s in between San Francisco and Santa Clara counties…

    Jinja Out

    So was anyone able to make the Toronado event? I really wanted to go, but 1.5 hours each way is too much for me on a Monday :-) It took a lot not to hit my local BevMo and Beltramo’s to see if they had any of the beer, though. I know they wouldn’t yet, which is what held me back, but the compulsion was there!
