Here’s a bit of a news flash. If you can’t make it to the Bistro Saturday for the Double IPA fest and tapping of a keg of the new New Albion Ale. (See my post below.), Don Barkley, the guy who brewed it back in the 1970s and again this year is bringing a keg to the Toronado , 547 Haight St., San Francisco, on Friday. This news comes from Toronado GM Steve Bruce:
- I just wanted to let you know that Don is coming to the Toronado on Friday for a “High Noon” first tapping of the New Albion Ale, he’s going to tell some stories, sign some Celebrators, and continue on a pub crawl around the city, tapping the beer at all of the locations that were fortunate enough to get some, finishing at the Anchor Kickoff event that evening. Magnolia is working out the details of the pub crawl and will probably send out a newsflash about it later today.
My comment: Don Barkley ways it’s “just a pale ale.: I say: Hot damn. Go SF Beer Week.
