Weird-Ass Beer of the Week: Allagash Curieux

Posted By on Mon, Jan 26, 2009 at 11:10 AM

Like the taste of bourbon but not all its alcohol? Check out Allagash's Curieux, a Belgian-style Tripel ale aged for two months in barrels previously used to age Jim Beam. The result is a complex brew with nutty and fruity flavors from the oak and a definite bourbon aftertaste. At $16-$17 for a 750ml bottle, it's one of the more expensive beers on the market, but a little goes a long way: I serve it after dinner in small glasses, just as I would hard liquor. I've seen it intermittently at Bevmo, City Beer, and K&L, and reportedly it's served at Church Key (1402 Grant at Green), a new bar in North Beach.

  • 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.'"
