Perfectly Good Beer Wasted As Pancake Debate Rages On

Posted By on Mon, Oct 8, 2007 at 9:16 AM


While debate continues to rage over at The Snitch about which beer makes the best pancake batter -- Olympia, Weinhhard's, Pyramid Apricot or Guinness -- I prefer my beer first, usually the night before, and my pancakes in the morning. And since the last thing anybody wants to do after a long night of drinking is cook breakfast, or for that matter, waste perfectly good beer in a pancake batter recipe, luckily there are plenty of obliging greasy spoons to hit the griddle on your behalf.

As Gridskipper points out "Everyone Says They Have the Best Pancakes in San Francisco," including some non-traditional varieties like Shanghai Dumpling King's green onion flapjacks (otherwise known as salty pancakes) and It's Tops Coffee Shop's chocolate peanut butter pancakes.

Here's to drinking your beer and eating your pancakes, in that order.

  • 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.'"
