ERA, Beer Revolution to open Friday

Once you see ERA Friday night you will understand why I have been so persistent about its opening, which is several months late (several is a polite term for it). 19 Grand Ave. Happy Hour starts 4:30 pm. Friday. Two stories, two bars, 5,000 square feet. Beer Revolution is opening tomorrow night too at 464 Third St. It’s not a pub but you can sit and sip and nibble inside or (in better weather) on the patio that has long been wasted on the closed café that the bottle-shop tavern replaces. And not to forget, tomorrow is the one year anniversary of the Fox, with festivities (including theater tours) beginning 5 p.m. at the Den. bill-brand
Speaking of anniversaries, the Pacific Coast Brewing Co. will unveil a Bill Brand Memorial Porter, named in honor of the absolutely intrepid Oakland Tribune reporter, beer aficionado and equestrian who passed away after being hit by a Muni Metro train Feb. 8, 2009. It’s okay though to drink up. Bill would have wanted everyone to have a good time.  And I think he would have loved Beer Revolution.
