SodaCraft Coming to the Ferry Plaza Market

Posted By on Wed, Apr 20, 2011 at 9:03 AM


Jesse Friedman, aka Beer and Nosh, aka the soon-to-be-released Almanac Beer, just announced on his blog this morning that he has a third alias: SodaCraft.

We've written about Friedman's experiments with making ginger ale and other seasonal sodas for the New Taste Marketplace events his wife organizes. Now he's come up with a proper name, a logo, and a website. And come this Saturday, he'll be selling glasses of SodaCraft drinks at Hapa Ramen's Ferry Plaza farmers' market stand.

The sodas are made from natural fruit and ginger juices, discreet amounts of sugar, and enough baker's yeast to give them a prickly effervescence. SFoodie hasn't yet tried the fennel and orange soda he's debuting at the farmers' market, but we have drunk a glass of the ginger beer, which is so dry, with a burn so fresh-tasting and vivid, that it's almost a savory drink.

  • 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.'"
