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

Klimaet (577) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - APR 19, 2015
Bottle shared at Dangerous Bottleshare 10th Anniversary. 2012 vintage for wins. Pours hazy dark orange, small offwhite head. Aromas of citrus, pear, dessert wine like notes, gooseberry, pear, grapes, dry oaky notes, lambic-like funkiness, musty, vanilla, green apples, floral notes. Soooo complex! Taste is citrus, sour pear, grapes, green apples, vinegar, gooseberries, dry oaky notes, vanilla, funk. This lived up to my expectations for sure!

77ships (5041) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 22, 2015
THANKS! 750 ml. bottle sampled @ the “pre-Club 54 tasting”. 2012 Vintage. Supposedly this is the finest vintage. Hazy orange, little white bubbles. Amazing nose, huge musty cellar, in an almost lambiek-funk type of way, thick oak, musty, light cardboard, very light malt base. Taste is slightly sweet malty musty oak, funk, floral, wood, vinegar, delicate funk, citrus, light green apple, rather funky, delicate in its approach & qualities. Fittingly lively carbonation, drinks crazily easily. Very impressive beer. Absolutely amazing. Going back by memory, I do feel that I noticeably preferred this one to the Duck Duck Gooze. Just awesome really.

DSG (8175) - Tel Aviv, - MAR 15, 2015
[2/11/15] Bottle sample from some guy at Toronado in San Francisco. 2014 bottle. Hazy yellow. Lovely funky and fruity aroma with a nice manure note. Sourish funky and fruity flavor with some cobwebs and oak. Quite rounded mouthfeel. Great and refreshing but possibly a bit over-hyped – not as complex as some Belgian Lambics.

Beermack (716) - Dublin, IRELAND - FEB 28, 2015
2014 bottle at T. Hazy gold. Aroma gives peach, apricot, good funk, lemon rind, some light hibiscus. Taste is fabulously balanced - light peachy notes, tarter citrus, wood, light herby spruce, some funk, light orange. Lingering lemon zest, wood and peach. Great.

2008 bottle, Toronado, SF. Pours orange amber with an off-white head. Nose is grape skin, sour apple, gooseberry, and caramel. Flavour is sour mash, green apple, Brett yeast, barnyard, grass, lemon zest, apricot, and notes of caramel. OMG Incredible.

pushkinwow (2215) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 20, 2015
2012 bottle opened up at the 2014 Ottawa End of Year Gathering. Clear golden pour with a bubbly white head. Mouth puckering acidity with a light sourness, lemon rind, becomes very dry, almost parching the palate, acidity continues throughout. I would describe this as an incredible dimensional beer...I just like my enamel too much.

Boutip (5065) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 9, 2015
Bottle: Poured a clear yellow color ale with a nice white foamy head. Aroma of funky notes with clearly identifiable sour notes with some acidic notes also noticeable is quite intense. Taste is also dominated by funky notes with some sharp sour notes, quite a bit of acidity and a short finale. Body is about average with good carbonation. I get what they are trying to do and I also get why people enjoy this but in my opinion while this is a great beer there is a lack of balance and too much acidity in the end.

cfrancis (2672) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 21, 2014
Pours cloudy gold with a small white top. Aroma is just awesome. I left some in my glass for almost an hour so that I could go back and sniff again and again. Sweet tartness and floral with a hint of tropical. Taste is soft and delicate with the tartness, nice farmhouse and floral notes. Flavours on top of flavours. Need to find more.
