Limited Barebottle Crowlers: On Shelves Friday, September 2nd


      We are elated to introduce crowlers (32 oz) from Barebottle Brewing Company to our shelves at all three stores this Friday to kick off the long weekend! Barebottle brews innovative beers inspired by the San Francisco Bay Area using local ingredients wherever possible, and partners with local homebrewing groups to develop new beers using a competitive method. All three stores will have crowlers of Galaxy Quest IPA. According to their “tech board”, “GQ is a New England-Style IPA that comes in at 6.1% ABV and at 58 IBUs: pairing hard-to-find Galaxy hops (BOOM! Tropical) with the famous Burlington yeast (BOOM! Peach) for a stone fruit & tropical aroma bonanza. Never give up! Never Surrender!”

Also, each store will have crowlers from an additional offering from Barebottle. The Castro store will have Scurvy Fighter; a 5.4% American Pale Ale (45IBUs) – inspired by 49er pioneers who grew citrus to combat weakness & anemia. This all Citra(R)-hopped medal-winner will keep you feeling strong!

The Clement store will have Sparkling Wheat; a 4.4% American Wheat Ale brewed with a blend of three wheat malt varieties, this crisp, refreshing, incredibly clear beer was designed to be enjoyed on those elusive hot SF days.

The Cortland store will have the Muir Woods IPA (B), the winner of this year’s SF Homebrewers’ Guild IPA competition. Like a citrus-laced pine cone, bursting with notes of pine needles & oranges. Rye malts add a liberating spiciness – both complex & refreshing!

 For our members, we shall reserve one if you give us a call. Otherwise, plan accordingly because these will be super-limited. Cheers!
