Update: Brewmaster Dave McLean reveals the name!

This morning a crane lifted the sign for Public House into place on the façade of AT&T Park, just in time for tomorrow's tapping ― and naming ― of the days'-old sports pub's house ale. At 5 p.m. tomorrow, Magnolia brewer Dave McLean will hoist a pint glass, we presume, of the house bitter he's making for Public House, after first tapping the cask. Publicist Liz Einbinder says you'll be able to cop a free taste (standard practice on all 24 drafts at Public House). Beyond that, you'll have to pay ($8 for a 16-ouncer, $5 for 10). Special food pairings, too, including pigs in the blanket, lamb sliders, 4505 andouille, and German potato salad. No word on whether you'll be able to influence the naming by shouting out your choice, or if ale's tag has been precooked.

Event details:

Naming of Public House Cask Ale and Naming Party

Date: Weds., April 7, 5-8 p.m.

Location: Public House, 24 Willie Mays Plaza at AT&T Park (at King and Fourth St.)

  • 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.'"
