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

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2009 Bottle pours an orange body with a thin off white head. Plagued by sour vinegar and a light oakiness, and a mouthwatering aroma. One of the first sours i enjoyed. Lemon, cheese, and sour milk. lightly dry with grapes. Interesting. My first taste. 4.0 Pours a golden peach body with a thin lacing. Citric, tart, peach. Lightly tart and sour with a light woodiness. Dry with no etoh detected. Its no yellow bus. 4.1

KimJohansen (10350) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - DEC 23, 2008
Hazy orange with medium beige head. Sour aroma with notes of barnyard, orange, vinegar and wood. Sour flavour with notes of wood, barnyard and grapefruit. Sour finish. Misses the pureness that lambic has. Not dry enough.

Papsoe (25084) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 3, 2008
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of KimJohansen. Pours a very hazy and opaque golden with a creamy head that leaves a curtain of lacework. Fresh, sharp Brett aroma. Medium body with very dry vinegary notes and a dry, lightly bitter and sourish finish. A very decent beer, but not really on par with the very best Belgian sours - and yeah, I know this technically isnt a sour. 221108

Hazy golden orange color poured at Obriens rare botltle tasting. Lovely aromas of peach, lemon, and tangerines. Smooth on your tongue. Tart sourness with a complexity of flavor. Fantastic brew.

Grovlam (4156) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 27, 2008
75 cl. Bottle [courtesy of Kim, thanks buddy] Great looking large fin foamy head that really lasted. Hazy golden color. Excellent display of lacework. Lovely and quite complex aroma of sour fruit, barnyard, vinegar, citrus. Over the palate came Brett, dry wood and again sour fruity and citrus like notes. Full bodied with an average carbonation and very dry texture. Moderated acidic flavor with good counter sweetness. Lingering vinegar and fruity finish.

trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 20, 2008
A rare beer that lives up to its reputation. Pours hazy gold with an oily white ring. Lovely perfume nose, sour mash, brett, and butter. Quite sour up front with a rhubarb flavor. The sour slowly turns into a buttery dinner roll. Tannins and oak along with a bit of cheese show up, too. Very acidic at first, but mellows into a nicely vinuous beer.

3fourths (8110) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 13, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 26, 2012 750ml bottle, 2008. A careful and slow pour yields a honey colored beer with barely a slight haze and little to no head, appearing in the glass as a still lambic typical will, but a small head can easily be swirled up with a few shakes. Intensely wonderful nose of eggy, resinous pinot noir grapes, overripe and souring peach pulp and lactic acid (medium to heavy). Flavor is properly prickly and sour, the acidic is mostly lactic. Begins with some pinot barrel notes, dry and tannic. Pillowy and soft on the palate at the same time as being prickly and sour, not intense, but just enough to satisfy. Rich, frothy, a wee bit slimy (thankfully not as slimy/filmy as Isabelle Proximus). Worthy of high marks.

darkguardian (725) - Florida, USA - OCT 18, 2008
22oz bottle for the SATRG. Thanks alot Mark for sending this. Tons of apple and lemon citrus in this nose and the appearance is lighter than I expected. This is no Oud Bruin. Hazy light amber with a small foamy ring. As I mentioned the nose is apple and citrus but also some bananna and clove with some funky cheese and oak. Very complex nose. Flavor is really great, almost as good as the Deviation. Apple, peach, black pepper, vanilla and caramel. Very complex. One of my favorite beers, this was a real treat. It was my friends favorite of the tasting as well.

thickfreakness (132) - AUSTIN, Texas, USA - OCT 8, 2008
Thanks to cloudskipper for this Batch 2 bottle. Shared with bgramer last night. Pours bubbly hazy yellow with a small layer of foam on top. Aroma begins with green apples, lemon and barnyard; pineapple, wood, light banana, cobweb; musty and more funky as it warmed up. Flavor was lots of green apple, tart grapes, lemon, subtle funk at beginning; slight oaky tannins, banana, and a slight alcohol bite as it warmed; slight corn in after taste. As it got completely to room temp it was like juicy ripe pineapple and got more sweet overall. It coats the mouth with tingly bubbles and leaves a lasting impression on the palate. I absolutely loved this one; it had so many layers and subtle flavors/smells.

Gregis (1281) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - OCT 5, 2008
Batch 1. Bottle generously shared by mreusch. Pours a cloudy Tang-orange with virtually no head, just a tiny ring of white bubbles clinging to the edge of the glass. The nose is a pleasant, tart citric sourness. Light to medium-bodied and slick with a tart finish that rolls into a bit of acidity, hitting the chest like mild heartburn. Mildly tart citrus with a touch of cardboard. I’m thinking that this bottle may have been a tad past its prime, but overall, this is a pretty drinkable sour. Thanks again for sharing this with us, Matt.
