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

Benzai (8754) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - NOV 22, 2014
Bottle [2007 vintage, first bottling] shared @ tasting. Hazy orange pink color, small off-white head. Aroma is a little faint but there’s a nice subtle fruity touch there with a slightly sharp fruitpeel sour-bitter bite. Tastes like that as well, a little touch of sour-bitter in the beginning but a very smooth subtle fruity sourness underneath. Soft, peaches, a hint of orangepeel. Nice!

kermis (5607) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 22, 2014
2007 vintage bottle shared. Pours cloudy orange with a ring off white head. Aroma of citrus, light barnyard, soft funk, peaches, light woody. Flavour is light moderate acidic, surely softened with age. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, it’s really good but this is surely very much softened with age in every way.

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 (2824) - 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 (195) - 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.
