Between Bay to Breakers and Maker Faire, there's a lot going on this weekend. For those of you with a child-like sense of whimsy but a distaste for huge crowds, there's a 7-year old's birthday party that we think you'll enjoy. On Saturday, City Beer Store celebrates its 7th Anniversary with the release of a new beer from a wildly popular brewery. It'll be just like the parties of your youth, only boozier!

Golden Road Brewing Soft Launches in SF

Start off your Saturday by celebrating the watering hole that pioneered the hybrid bottle shop/bar model and opened up the Bay Area to brews from countless breweries from around the globe. In honor of City Beer's 7th Anniversary, the shop teamed up with legendary hop-whisperers Alpine Brewing, whose "San Diego style" hoppy brews have set the benchmark for commercial breweries and homebrewers across the country.

The beer, called 'Magificent Seven', is a Double IPA brewed with seven different malts, seven different hops, seven hop additions throughout the boil, and weighing in at 7.7% ABV (hmmm, we're noticing a pattern...). Be sure to congratulate owners Craig and Beth on seven years of craft beer evangelism. Details for the party and beer release, below:

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
