Let's Talk About Hops 

Wednesday, Jan 27 2010
From Feb. 5 through 14, some people are going to be so drunk. Also during this time, Alice Waters determines what food goes well with what beer. So does chef Ruggero Gadaldi of Beretta, Bar Crudo’s Mike Selvera, Orson’s Elizabeth Falkner, and any number of other chefs around the Bay Area, since these people all signed on for beer-food pairings as part of S.F. Beer Week. Shmaltz Brewing Company takes another route, pairing its beers with the dance troupe Hubba Hubba Revue and accordion band Vagabondage on Feb. 11, and tonight with the klezmer band Sex With No Hands, to celebrate the coming of age of the company’s newest beer, Jewbelation Bar Mitzvah. DIY crafters get the Homebrewers Beer Fest, and everybody gets beer ice cream at Humphry Slocombe during the entire run. A daily scavenger hunt, beer and chocolate pairings, a Beer 2 Brakers bike ride, and seemingly endless beer tappings, tastings, and drinkings are just a sampler of the many events taking place. It makes us want to ... piss, to be honest. There’ll be a line later.

  • 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.'"
