St. George Spirits/Hangar One Distillery Summer Open House

I feel better already: St. George Spirits/Hangar One Distillery (2601 Monarch at Alameda Point, Alameda) are hosting a Summer Open House tomorrow, Saturday, June 28, from 1:00 to 6:00 p.m. and they want you to help them celebrate the release of this year's Fraser River Raspberry Vodka and their brand-spanking new still. The entrance fee will get you three cocktails, an unspecified quantity of spirits (they also make whiskey), and best of all: iced vodka luges! It'll be just like spring break '99 all over again. Bonus: the stills will be running most of the day, offering the rare opportunity to witness the distillation process up close.

But that's not all! Those looking for something with a little more kick will definitely want to check out the special "Absinthe Den" where (for an extra $10) the hosts will be pouring Absinthe, Heirloom Apple Brandy, and a DeProfundis 20-year-old Pear Brandy. Wisely, they're providing free shuttle service to the distillery from both the West Oakland BART station and the Alameda Main street ferry building, beginning at 12:30 p.m. and running until 4:30 p.m.

Tickets are $35 at the door; order tickets on the phone by calling 510-864-0635. This is a 21 and over event, so don't even think about it kids. Bring picture ID.

  • 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.'"
