Rock Star Beer Productions held their first San Francisco Beer and Music Festival on November 21st. The Las Vegas company easily appealed to locals and sold out almost a week in advance. The event was outdoors at SOMA Streat food Park and showcased multiple local and regional breweries as well as local bands and DJ’s. There were over 50 craft beers to please your palate over and over again.
My favorite was the Oyster Stout by HenHouse brewing company. It’s brewed with oysters from Hog Island Oyster Co. and sea salt. It’s color is pitch black almost and it has a savory taste of chocolate and coffee with a dry finish. The bitter chocolate taste lingers a bit after. Luckily, the tastings were unlimited so I was able to go back for seconds.
I also got to sample a hard apple cider by William Tell. The company was named after him because he’s known for “hitting the bulls eye” when he shot an apple off of his young son’s head. Their signature cider is a unique blend of freshly fermented hard apple cider and premium California pinot grigio. In my opinion the taste certainly hit the “bulls eye” as well.
The production company is working on other great events throughout San Jose, Hollywood, Las Vegas and San Diego. On November 27th they will be having a free beer tasting and show with Alien Ant Farm at Yost Theater. Shhhh… don’t tell anyone because it’s a secret! Register here!
