WED JULY 23RD 5PM - 6:30PM Share a pint with Shaun & Nico from 21st Amendment Brewery! We’ll be pouring some super rare, pub-only beers and Shaun and Nico will be in-house to visit, sign autographs and talk shop!
We’ll be pouring the following 21st Amendment Beers:
By using more late hop additions, the flavor and aroma of the hops to come through in perfect balance with the delicious caramel malts in this recipe rather than that typical over-bittered IPA that is like a spike on the back of your tongue. Silver medal winner at 2014 Los Angeles International Beer Competition
ABV: 6.7% IBUs: 65
MCA Session Stout
Delicious roast coffee notes in the flavor and aroma are complimented beautifully by the orange zest of Cascade hops. A surprisingly easy-drinking stout for your next jam session!
Silver Medal Winner 2013 Great American Beer Festival
ABV: 4.5% IBUs: 27
Mo’Tcho Risin’ Stout
Cocoa nibs from local San Fran chocolatier TCHO were used during secondary fermentation. There is also a fine citrus aroma in the finish from Centennial hops. The result is a marriage of delicious dark flavors and spice. This smooth concoction goes great with desserts or on its own.
ABV: 8.2% IBUs: 55
This American session ale packs a lot of hop and malt flavor into a refreshingly lower-alcohol brew, making it the perfect beer to have on hand when you have a little history to make.
ABV: 4.4% IBUs: 42
ABOUT 21st Amendment:
In 2000, Nico Freccia and Shaun O’Sullivan founded the 21st Amendment Brewery in San Francisco’s historic South Park neighborhood. The popular brewpub is now at the heart of the new city center, just south of the financial district and only two blocks from the San Francisco Giants baseball park. In addition to eight rotating taps of multiple award-winning hand-crafted house beers, the pub has been voted “Best Brewpub”, “Best Burger” and “Best Happy Hour” by the San Francisco press.
Freccia and O’Sullivan met in early 1995 in San Francisco. Both had just moved from southern California to the Bay area when they heard the calling of beer. O’Sullivan, a former photographer and paralegal, “traded his suits for boots and was saved by beer”. He moved to Berkeley and took a job as assistant brewer at the Triple Rock Brewery there. Freccia, a writer, actor and, by extension, restaurant professional, was also an avid homebrewer. Frustrated with the lack of beer culture in the L.A. area, he moved to San Francisco and began writing for the Celebrator Beer News, the west’s largest beer publication. Freccia and O’Sullivan met, became friends and, while sitting together in a summer class on brewing science at UC Davis, hatched their plan for what would become the 21st Amendment.
