Bay Area Pub Crawls
Seriously southern cooking combined with gourmet twists, an extensive whiskey book, and a bounty of house-brewed beers make Southpaw BBQ a worthy brewery destination in the diverse Mission District. One of my personal favorites is to pair a pint of their Roll Tide Red Ale with some smoky chicken wings and a side of black pepper brie mac n’ cheese – ain’t nothing closer to true Southern hospitality in Northern California.
San Francisco has a long-standing microbrewery tradition, tracing its roots to the end of the 19th century. In 1896, Ernst F. Baruth and his son-in-law, Otto Schinkel, Jr., purchased an old brewery on Pacific Avenue and renamed it Anchor. The brewery burned down during the 1906 earthquake and survived prohibition. Renowned for a style called steam beer, the brewery was purchased by Fritz Maytag. He grew the business into an institution in the 1970s and 1980s and introduced the first modern-day Porter in the United States and the first India Pale Ale.
Comedian Will Ferrell is auctioning off a craft beer bus tour for four lucky winners who will join the movie star for a tour of craft beer bars in Southern California this December. On Dec. 12, the winners will join Mr. Ferrell for lunch at the Blind Lady Ale House after sampling craft beers at three bars known for their superb selection of micro brews. The four winners will receive VIP treatment while sampling craft beers on and off the bus with 120 other beer lovers on board. Ferrell is auctioning the experience to raise money for Cancer for College, a charitable organization established by his longtime friend Craig Pollard. The organization raises funds to help cancer survivors earn college educations after they recover.
Ferrell has announced that in addition to a nice lunch and some tasty brews, each guest will also receive "the most glorious red jumpsuit you have ever worn in order to get into the spirit of the holiday season." The jumpsuits are a tribute to Mr. Ferrell’s performance in the popular holiday movie “Elf” released in 2003. Beer lovers who want to bid on this beer bus tour have until Nov. 14 to take their chance on bending an elbow (and a story or two) with Mr. Ferrell and contributing to a worthy cause. Organizers hope to raise $20,000 for Cancer for College recipients.
