San Francisco's annual Beer Week draws beer geeks from all over the world for ten days of tasting, guzzling, and chugging, culminating on the 15th with the Celebrator-sponsored "Best of the West" mega-pouring at the Oakland Convention Center. Here's my short list of the most interesting of the many events:

  • Saturday, 2/7, 11am on, The Bistro, 1001 B St., Hayward (4 blocks from Hayward BART): Double IPA Festival, $25 admission includes 5 tastes
  • Sunday, 2/8, 1pm on, Jupiter Brewing, 2181 Shattuck, Berkeley, and Triple Rock Brewery, 1920 Shattuck, Berkeley (both near downtown Berkeley BART): barrel-aged sour ale tasting, $10 admission includes two tastes

  • 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.'"
