RateBeer is holding its second gallery event on Nov. 9 at SPUR in San Francisco. Gallery II: Beauty from a Barrel is a charitable benefit for Ales for Autism.
During the event, Chase Healey, brewer and co-owner of Prarie Artisan Ales in Oklahoma, will share his newest beers and talk about his process and the brewery, which has made quite a splash with its farmhouse-inspired ales. Local farm-to-table brewery Almanac will pour its autumn releases, including Heirloom Pumpkin Barleywine. Mark Jig of Craftsman Brewing in Pasadena, Calif., will talk about Small Brewing: Craft and Audience with Joe Tucker of RateBeer. San Francisco importer Waterloo Beverages will pour Kriek from Belgian lambic brewery Oud Beersel. Tim Clifford, beer wunderkind of Sante Adairius Rustic Ales in Capitola, Calif., will explain his wine barrel-based solera process and present his newest releases.
Jay Goodwin of the much-anticipated The Rare Barrel in Berkeley will share new releases and discuss his vision. And North Carolina brewery Wicked Weed, which will be making its debut at this year’s Great American Beer Festival, will pour some of its sour beers.
Also, Nicole Erny of Cicerone.org will discuss beer and food pairings.
San Francisco’s Dandelion Chocolate will provide the chocolate and the North Bay’s new Tomales Farmstead Creamery will serve artisan cheeses.
Tickets will include a keepsake tasting glass, unticketed 5-ounce pours and access to the three-floor exhibition of art and artifacts from brewers. Signed memorabilia from Prairie, Sante Adairius and Hill Farmstead will be available. Tickets, which will be limited to 400 people, are available here.
