Not long after openings its 95,000-square-foot brewery in San Leandro, 21st Amendment is set to release the facility's inaugural beer. Toaster Pastry sounds like a Pop Tart but it's an India-Style Red Ale that comes in a tall boy. (The name alludes to the brewery's former use, as a Kellogg's factory, and it's grrrrr-eat!) 

Using biscuit malts imbues the beer with a nutty flavor, according to founder and brewer Shaun O'Sullivan. And the pale and dark crystal malts provide some semblance of strawberry jam. To celebrate this expansion into the world of 19.2-ounce cans of summery goodness, the 15-year-old 21st Amendment is throwing a party tomorrow at the new brewery, with live music, food trucks, and a kids zone. There's even a free shuttle to get you to and from BART so you don't have to get on 580 after, um, eating all those 7.6 percent ABV Frosted Flakes.

And if you miss it, Toaster Pastry will be available starting next month across California and the other 24 states where 21st Amendment gets distributed (i.e., the good states).

Toasted Pastry Release Party, Saturday, Aug. 29, noon - 10 p.m., at 21st Amendment Brewery, 2010 Williams, San Leandro.

  • 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.'"
