To clarify, I was traveling with kids and some of these stops were lunches, so I wasn't really able to sample the number of brews that I would have wanted. But I was glad to get to these places.
First was 21st Amendment on a Sunday evening. Had the Jerk Chicken and two pints of the Back in Black, which is sort of a Black IPA. (oddly, they didn't have their regular IPA available.) Then I ordered a Double Trouble Imperial IPA, while the wife got another specialty Double IPA of which the name escapes me. She didn't care for it, so I drank both. Fortunately we were cabbing it home.
Next we visited Jupiter, in Berkley. Great Pizza. The beer was terrific as well and I had a Red Spot, an Amber, and the IPA. Took the BART home.
Next day at lunch we rented a car and drove up the coast and went inland to Russian River. Had a Blind Pig, a Pliny the Elder, and when the girls went for a short shopping trip I sat at the bar and had the Porter. The wife drove the first hour after that.
The next day we drove south and stumbled quite by accident onto the Half Moon Bay Brewing Company. We weren't even looking for it, but it was lunchtime. Hate it when that happens. Nice location right on the water. Had the IPA and an Amber...and some Fish Tacos. Nice beers. Wish I could have tried more, but again, cars and kids. Damn..
Last was Tasty Bear for a quick lunch on Thursday. Had just one 22 oz IPA as we had to keep moving. The menu (spanish) is really good, but it was a tough one with little kids. Had some Tapas and moved on. Again, wish I could have sampled more brews.
T-Shirt Haul. Didn't get one from Tasty Bear. Brain fade.
