Beer Truck Gets Stuck on San Francisco Hill

Posted By on Wed, Jul 16, 2014 at 10:01 AM


San Francisco, to the surprise of none, is a town that can hold its liquor. And not let it go. 

That was the case yesterday on California and Jones Streets when ace photographer Adam Derewecki noticed the Coors Light truck idling on the side of the road wasn't doubled-parked -- it was stuck. 

While many of today's San Franciscans would delight in the schadenfreude of a tech coach being unable to negotiate the low-tech hills of our city and disgorging its ascendant young passengers, a certain kind of San Franciscan may enjoy the spectacle of our city hindering the progress of a Coors truck. 

The mega-brewer has a long history of anti-union behavior and support of right-wing causes -- Harvey Milk used this as a springboard bring together Teamsters and would-be gay drivers in a Coors boycott.

For those Derewecki reports were trapped in a four-block-long impromptu parking lot behind the beached beer truck, perhaps this offered a little solace. 

Perhaps not.

  • 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.'"
