Monday Suds: Vacation Suds

I am starting to edit my pictures from California.  I thought I would grab out the beer ones first!  Once we got into San Francisco, we dropped off the car and our bags and got some recommendations from our bellman at the Hotel Triton!  He mentioned the Thirsty Bear (which I had never heard of) and we were set to go.

Once we had the name, we googled the address and found out there were cheese and charcuterie plates and pairings.  We got set up and I couldn’t wait to dive in.  Who doesn’t want to do a flight of beer with cheese, meets, and toast!  I was surprised about the Salmon pairing and I would love to have this plate over and over again.  The tomatoes made it so fresh and the salmon was decadent.  The tiny pickles were pretty tasty too.

After I had a chance to look around this gigantic place (two floors and some great party space) we noticed the Organic brewery sign.  From the Thirsty Bear website:

“ThirstyBear Brewing Company is the first and only brewery in San Francisco to brew certified organic beer. ThirstyBear Brewing Company brews CCOF and FDA certified organic beer, because we care how the agricultural practices that grow your barley and hops affect.”

Each beer we had was true to style and delicious.  We have tried other organic breweries that seem to have limited flavors due to limited ingredient choices.  What I learned is that Organic beer doesn’t have to be boring!  This beer was amazing.  My favorite was the Polar Bear Pilsner.  After an afternoon of walking around and a week of big Zins, the cool and crisp Pils hit the nail on the head.

I would certainly recommend Thirsty Bear to anyone stopping in San Fran! I just wish I could get their beer here in Colorado… Can anyone help me with that?  Beer Exchange?  Make sure to check out their social media to find out what they are up to.
