Late June to Mid July, 2019: San Francisco Stars. We spent a week in San Francisco and found two weeks worth of Beers of the Day. See our “Beer of the Day.” >>>>>
We recently spent a week in San Francisco sampling over 60 really interesting beers. Ellie worked for her publishing company at a massive convention while I got to spend the day figuring out where to take her to drink in the evening. Decades ago in the first craft revolution California had far more breweries than the east, but the average brewery in the east brewed better beer than the average brewery in the west. That’s changed. Beers in the east are vastly more numerous and reflect a broad range of tastes and skills. West coast breweries, at least our sample of a couple of dozen in the Bay Area show that same range but the mid point is far higher than it was a few decades ago. See our Beers of the Day for 14 of the best out of more than five dozen that we found.
