Canning, progress, and upcoming festivals

There are glimmers of light at the end of 2010. Almost unbelievably there will definitely, absolutely, undoubtedly be cans of Golden State Ale and Baltic Porter hitting store shelves by the second week of December. The long wait is coming to an end for fans of the Porter.

It really is happening.

Meanwhile we are keeping production of everything else rolling as smoothly as possible amidst construction. More on that progress later. In the meantime, here's a nice video of our original canning line at work, shot by local brew enthusiast and brewer Mark Taylor. He may have caught video of the last run of Siamese Twin Ale to come off the original canning line.

We'll be up and around the Bay and beyond pouring beer in the coming weeks. First up is Taste of Santa Cruz, coming up this Thursday evening at the Coconut Grove.

On Sunday the 7th we'll be up in the crowds at Snowbomb San Francisco, which takes place at Fort Mason.

Fans of our beer out in Nevada (we know a few exist), can find us at the Brews Best Beer Fest, happening out at Lake Las Vegas on the 13th.

And then finally there will be a return to Fort Mason for the BevMo Holiday Beers Festival on Saturday the 20th. There may or may not be a sighting of our American Special Bitter at this event.
