Black Hammer Brewing

Black Hammer Brewing is a newer entry to the San Francisco Craft Beer scene. I made sure to check them out during my visit, and I’m really glad that I did! Black Hammer is affiliated with Pacific Brewing Laboratory. Be aware that at time of writing in November 2015, their brews are brewed in Nevada City, CA north of Sacramento. Black Hammer is waiting for the natural gas to be hooked up in this location at Bryant Street/Zoe Street in San Francisco when I visited.

Local Brewing Co

Since I was staying in the SoMa neighborhood of San Francisco, I decided to go for a walk to checkout a few places, including Black Hammer Brewing, 21st Amendment Brewing and here, Local Brewing Co. The beer was pretty good and the space was large and amazing. Tasting Samples Sutro Tower Stout 5.9% 59IBU Parklet ISA 4.7% 61IBU Indian Summer Oktober Fest 6.3% 1776 India Black Lager 7.8% 73IBU Boomtown Brown 4.1% 23IBU Crooked Amber 5.6% 30IBU Additional Thoughts This Brewery seems like it’s an adjustment from the what the neighborhood has been like lately.

Boneyard Beer

My first visit to Boneyard Beer in Bend! I finally made it!

I have been enjoying Boneyard Beer for several years now, but a visit to the brewery itself has thus far evaded me. I corrected that today…

Whistler-Blackcomb December 2014

Overlooking the Fitzsimmons Valley, Whistler Mountain, and Black Tusk on Day 2 Day 1 With some high pressure in the short term forecast I decided that a last minute trip to Whistler was in order. We set out from Seattle at a pretty descent time. Of course, I had been in the mood for some quality Vancouver fare the entire drive up, so we stopped at one of my favorite places, Vij’s.
