End of an Era: Four Barrel Officially Dumps Soy Milk

Posted By on Tue, Nov 20, 2012 at 1:30 PM

A few weeks ago we broke the news that Four Barrel had plans to ditch soy milk for good, citing the issues with GMO soy as one of the primary reasons. Well, today's the day: This morning on Twitter, the coffee shop announced the switch to almond milk from Bakersfield's Califia Farms.

But don't work yourself into a tizzy about the loss of soy milk lattes just yet. Four Barrel owner Jeremy Tooker assured contributor Molly Gore of almond milk's deliciousness: "It just tastes way better [than soy]." And as sometimes-barista Gore pointed out in her original article, almond milk fares much better under the steaming wand than soy. Now we just wait and see how many coffee shops in town follow suit.

  • 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.'"
