COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
You’ve made it to 547 Haight Street. This destination is more San Francisco than Rice A Roni, Chinatown, and Lombard Street combined. Welcome to Broadway for brewers everywhere. Everyone who is anyone has poured their kegs here. For the last 20 years, this place has launched careers, confirmed legacies, and since 1987 the only name you need to know is David Keene. Take a seat. Tip Strong. Nod appreciatively and don’t ask stupid questions. Welcome to Big Daddy’s House known to most simply as "The T-Room." Here the bartenders are fluent in English, German, Flemish, French, Waloon and Czech. But they’re most known for their American Lip Service. Watch it. The lady with the jet black hair behind the bar eats idiots for lunch. At 547 Haight Street, you won’t find any Cable Cars except for this one. But if you’re standing outside the Dutch Doors of the World Famous Toranado, you surely found the most interesting place in all San Francisco. Its’ about RESPECT. Dave you continue to have ours. Here’s to 20 more years of punishing livers everywhere. Cheers Gina, Jim, Tomme, Vince and the Brewers of Port Brewing

Bottle @ 14.000th Tasting. Thanks to Hallinghansen (Tha Man) for sharing. Pours cloudy deep golden with a white head. Fruit, funk, peach, manuer and mild almond. Nose is a tad better - really deep and complex. Georgeous stuff!

Steve_0 (2757) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 9, 2014
The elusive Cable Car, finally got my shot. Sampled many times at GABF 2014. I think between friends and multiple times through the line I drank close to a pint of this stuff. Appearance was hazy golden with a big white head and great lacing. Really funky, citrusy, lemon peel, some urine/barnyard notes, a touch of grass and oaky aroma. Taste is tropical fruits - mango & pineapple - somewhat lemony, light urine, woody, light spice, horse blanket, herbs and wax with a medium sour finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Incredible funky and complex, yet highly drinkable and refreshing. So much Awesomeness! American geueze!

Dr_MedievAle (186) - Alabama, USA - OCT 6, 2014
outstanding aroma of funky apricot and roasted pecans. tastes of sweet and sour apricot, nutty biscuits and pecans in a subtle way. sweet caramel swirling in there, too. sticky mouthfeel but that nonetheless doesn’t over-coat the tongue.

GABF. Golden hue with white head. Aroma is straw, peppercorn, slight funk, lemon, grass. Medium light body and zesty carbonation. Taste is dry sweetness with a tart following and slight peppercorn finish. Overall this is a really nice brew.

tectactoe (2042) - Michigan, USA - AUG 23, 2014
Bottle: 2013. Murky; almost fully opaque with a vibrant, golden-orange color. Creamy, foamy, eggshell head wafts softly atop the radiant brew. Beautiful aroma of sour lemon, yogurt, lactic & lightly acetic acid, sweet-tart candy, tart citrus, white grape, slightly vinous oak, & some back-end helpings of moderate funk; musty hay, damp cheesecloth, & some sweaty barnyard notes. The flavor is brilliantly acidic & tart, but not so over the top that it becomes a burden to drink. Vinous white wine grape skins, rich woody oak, lemon & bursting citrus flesh, sour lacto with a mild yogurty tone, & a modest funky character sifting throughout. Lingering notes of wet cork, cellar floor, lightly lactic lemon, white grape, & dry wood. Sharp & crisp mouth feel. This beer is fantastic; the hype is pretty much warranted for this. Wonderfully complex & pleasantly sour without inducing any ulcers or GERD which goes miles for drinkability.

Bottles poured at toronado anniversary. Shared a 08,12, and 13. 12 was my favorite. Poured a nice gold color with small fizzy white head. Smell is slight lemony and sour. Taste is incredibly clean and tart. Delicious and easy to drink. Best unfruited sour I've had ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
