Taylor's Tonics of Santa Cruz offers a simple yet unique idea with its Redwood forest-brewed Chai Cola. A bubbly concoction featuring main ingredients of yerba mate, ginger, and black chai tea, this cola is sweetened with evaporated cane juice and tastes like a supercharged hybrid of ginger ale and root beer.

The chai's pronounced notes of cardamom and clove make this an original flavor in the cola landscape. These spices also give the beverage an adult air -- this ain't your kid's Coke.

  • 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.'"
