San Francisco Knows Good Beer
Over the next few weeks, you will see me writing about my beer experiences in San Francisco, California. I tasted many good beers, but I also learned one valuable lesson: San Francisco knows how to promote good beer. Case in point; there exists an official San Francisco Brewers Guild. They even publish a guide/map of the member establishments across the city. I'm not aware (though, probably not the best person to ask :) of organizations like this elsewhere in the country. (Plus, in all candor, I'm only aware of what they have done through their brochure and their unfinished website. But, hey, are they not on the right track thinking about the "right stuff"?) Do any of our readers know of these sort of groups around the U.S. or around the world? So, I'll end at this point because I will have plenty to say (as usual ;-) in upcoming writings about San Francisco beer bars, brewpubs, and breweries. We look forward to hearing from any of our readers with similar experiences in this great city.
