Bold Beers + Crafty Cocktails + Stroke 9
Welcome to the most fun event you will attend all year. Whether you are looking for an in depth exploration of the world's finest craft beers or you crave a perfectly made artisan cocktail, we have you covered. For the inaugural Bold Beers + Crafty Cocktails event, we are pulling out all the stops to ensure a most festive education through drinking experience! And because great drink pairs perfectly with great music, we have secured local favorite Stroke 9 to play an acoustic show, along with DJ Sol spinning between sets.
THE BOLD BEERS
Free yourself from the ordinary and dull and embrace over 75 handpicked craft beers from 25 breweries. The focus is on local breweries with a healthy dose of Belgian beers thrown in - because they are just too good not to be included. You'll savor unlimited sampling of bold beers - basically any beer that packs a wallop of complexity and style - whether it be a light yet robustly flavorful pilsner, a supremely refreshing Belgian-style wit, an extravagantly hopped double IPA, a hedonistic imperial red or a bourbon barrel-aged stout - we have you covered.
21st Amendment, Abita, Anchor Brewing, Anderson Valley, Bear Republic, Big Sky Brewing Co., Brasserie D'Achouffe, Bridgeport, Deschutes, Duvel, Gordon Biersch, Hofbrauhaus, Lagunitas, La Trappe, Maredsous, Moylans, North Coast, Omer, Ommegang, Pacific Brewing Laboratories, Samuel Adams, Sierra Nevada, Speakeasy, Tripel Karmeliet & Widmer
THE CRAFTY COCKTAILS
If beer is not your cup of tea, or if you simply embrace top notch cocktails in addition to your love of barley & hops, then you are in the right place. We'll have top mixologists on hand to craft samples of a wide range of artisan cocktails. Whether vodka, gin, rum, tequila or scotch are your drink of choice, we have you covered. We'll also introduce you to some incredible Peruvian pisco and even a sparkling liqueur from France. To answer the age old question of liquor before beer? or beer before liquor? An experienced imbiber will tell you that as long as the product quality is high, and you don't push your limits, than either way is just fine!
Angel's Envy Bourbon (artisan Kentucky bourbon aged in port casks), Blackwell's Fine Jamaican Rum (small production 'black gold'), Encanto Pisco (awarded world's best pisco), FAIR Vodka (ultra-premium French spirits utilizing fair trade ingredients), G'Vine Gin (grape flower gin from France), Hornitos Plata Tequila (a classic), Junipero Gin (from SF's Anchor Distilling), The King's Ginger Liqueur (high-octane favorite of King Edward VII), Laphroaig Quarter Cask Scotch (a blast of smoke and peat from this renowned producer), Pink Pigeon Rum (taste the sulttry shores of Mauritius), Prévu Sparkling Liqueur (for something completely different), WhistlePig Straight Rye Whiskey (micro production from Vermont) and Wodka Vodka (Polish for fun).
THE LIVE ENTERTAINMENT
Savoring a great beer or cocktail is always made even better while listening to live music - and this is not just any live music - this is Stroke 9. Originally from Marin, they have toured the world for well over a decade in support of their melodic alternative rock including their standout hit 'Little Black Backpack'.
Stroke 9 will be performing an acoustic show blending their own hits with inspired and witty covers of hits from all genres. They perfected these catchy classics while playing as their alter ego 'Boys Gone Wild' during dozens of sold out shows around the bay area in recent years.
Sloane Squared is a stunning new venue located in the heart of San Francisco on Mission b/n South Van Ness and 11th. This modern beauty artfully blends light woods, industrial metal and polished concrete throughout a sprawling space complete with multiple mezzanine areas and sleek couches. Basically, you'll be sipping and mingling in rock star style.
If all this weren't enough, DJ Sol will be spinning classic rock hits between band sets. And for re-hydration, Smartwater will be on hand, but we can't promise it will make you much smarter by evenings end.
And for dining, the incredible Brass Knuckle food truck will be outside all night. You'll be able to to outside, purchase food anf bring it back in all evening. Check out their extremely beer friendly menu!
THE VIP OPTION
Who doesn't want to be a VIP? While there aren't any velvet ropes to bypass on this evening, VIP status will grant you an extra half hour preview tasting starting at 6pm. During this time, each brewery will feature one or two very special brews that are either brewery-only, aged classics or limited edition.
