Mugwort, sage, madrone bark, and manzanita.
Spotlighted ingredients at the upcoming "Beers Made By Walking" Tapping
sound like things you’d pick out of the treads of a hiking boot for good reason. During the summer, local breweries concocted seven beers using foraged ingredients inspired by treks along Bay Area trails.
The goal was to connect brewers to the natural landscape and encourage place-based brews. Beer lovers will get their chance to sample these experiments in drinking hyper-locally this Saturday, Nov. 14, from 4:30-7 p.m. at the Bryant Street Sports Basement.
Just how experimental are we talking? Turns out there are a lot of interesting edibles out there, and the tasting notes read like the inventory list at an old-time apothecary.
