Sunday, Feb. 20


Your training regimen paid off! You've survived to the last day of SF Beer Week. Everything you sip today is just gravy.

Begin your victory lap at 21st Amendment:

Brewers' Sunday Tea

Where: 21st Amendment Brewery, 563 Second St. (at Bryant), 369-0900

When: 10:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m.

Cost: A la carte

What: And by "tea," we mean "beer." Enjoy Fatted Calf beer sausages paired with strong ales from 21A and Magnolia. Sausage before beer, you're in the clear.

Your liver has become a lean, mean filtering machine. But you don't want the little guy to get complacent. For Day 10 of beer "week," throw it a beer-cocktail curve ball:

What: Enjoy five cocktails made with beer and/or brewing ingredients. Highlights include a drink with house-made IPA syrup and a cocktail that melds Gosling's Black Seal rum with Anchor Old Foghorn barleywine.

Whiskey is pretty much distilled beer, right? Mix some more beer with it!

Booze and Brew Brawl

When: 9 p.m.-midnight

Cost: Pay per drink

What: Support local bartenders from establishments such as Smuggler's Cove, 15 Romolo, and Bourbon and Branch as they compete in a beer cocktail mix-off. Featured ingredients include Firestone Walker beer and local St. George Spirits. This is a sporting competition SFoodie can get behind.

  • 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.'"
