Share Brewmaster's Luncheon and Eclipse Imperial Stout Tasting with Todd Ashman

Event Details

More than any other single person Todd Ashman of Truckee, CA's Fifty-Fifty Brewing could be said to be directly responsible for craft beer's current fascination with aging beers in spirit barrels. Todd was the first brewer to win a GABF award for a barrel-aged beer and is widely regarded as the unmatched authority on barrel-sourcing for the craft beer industry. Todd's "Eclipse" Imperial Stout has become one of the most sought-after beers in the world, with particularly rare bottles frequently fetching hundreds of dollars on the secondary market.

On the final Sunday of SF Beer Week The Hog's Apothecary will be welcoming Todd for a Brewmaster's Luncheon that will conclude with a special guided tasting through of the most extraordinary iterations of the 2013 edition of Eclipse Imperial Stout:
  • Four Roses Bourbon Barrel
  • High West Bourbon Barrel
  • Java Coffee Bourbon Barrel Blend
The tasting will be preceded by our first ever lunch service here at Hog's. Chef John and his crew will be preparing their take on Bavarian beer-hall style luncheon to be served family style. Lunch will served with the diner's choice of two Fifty-Fifty releases that will not be poured elsewhere in the Bay Area: "Miso Hoppy," a single hop IPA brewed with a Japanese Hop varietal or, "Charles B. Brown," an American Brown Ale that is a staff favorite here at Hog's.

After the meal guests will be presented with 5oz off all 3 of the aforementioned versions of Eclipse as well as a 5oz pour of "Totality" the base beer that enters the varied spirit barrels and over time becomes the Eclipse.

As an added treat, Oakland's own Ocho Chocolate will be providing a sampling of various chocolates to taste alongside your Eclipse flight.
