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

badbeer (434) - Iowa, USA - APR 5, 2010
2009- Crystal clear golden color with a soft, pillowy white head with great retention. A great deal of effervescence in this one. Some lemon and citrus in the nose along with some funky cheese and a bit of acetic acid providing some sharpness. Lemon, hay, clove and pineapple are noticed on the tongue as well as some buttery notes. Fairly dry with plenty of carbonation; this one drinks quite well. For the price of admission, I’ll take another beer, but this is definitely good.

_angst_ (4464) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 28, 2016
Bottle courtesy of linusb. Pours hazy burnt golden with a fairly small frothy offwhite head that leaves plenty of spotty trace on the glass while dissiapting. Smell is fruity and funky with sourdough crackers, lemon juice, stone fruits, white grapes, moist wood, hay, dry soil, barnyard, leather, lemon zest and hints of rubber. Taste is sour, tiny malty, fruity and funky. Mouthfeel is dry, tart, slightly fruit skin astringent and light to medium bodied. Finish is sour with lemon juice, apricots and complex barrel and funk character. Love the balance between a simple bright citric and stone fruit forward US sour and almost gueuze-like funk. Yum!
