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

marcus (7296) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 16, 2009
On tap at Toronado 22nd anniversary. This hazy golden ale poured with a decent off-white head and a strong citrus aroma. There is a sour lemon flavor from the brett and a nice oak finish. It sticks to the palate in a very pleasant way.

JaBier (5286) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JUL 8, 2009
Batch 2 bottle sample at Muckfest 2009 Day 1. Cloudy orange pour with a thin white head. Tart citrus aroma, but not offensively funky. Reminds me of a really good Berliner Weiss. Super sour (but still not overly funky) flavor with some nice crisp lemon presence and an acidic finish. Not a fan of sours, but this one is one of the better I’ve had. Crap! I rated a sour a 4 or above?! Dammit, I think I’m actually starting to maybe like this style. Or at the very least I can appreciate when it’s very well executed.

BeerVirgin72 (880) - Pickerington, Ohio, USA - JUL 5, 2009
Bottle shared at Muckfest 2009 in Lancaster Ohio. Aroma of spoiled bread. Flavor was sour apples, brown sugar, hint of vanilla, and sour tarts. Not nearly as horrible as I was expecting for a sour. But not sure what all the fuss was about this beer.

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUN 14, 2009
Bottle shared by Sparky27 at Hellbilly’s tasting. Yeasty, sour aroma. Gold body with a white ring around the glass for a head. A sour beer but somewhat waterly. Maybe a bit overhyped.

BBB63 (6392) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUN 13, 2009
Bottle shared at 2009 DLD: Honestly not many notes on this one, I think I got distracted by someone. Hazy golden hue, good head. Sour cherries and apples, some brett funk and oak. The taste is acidic and fruity with some barnyard tones towards the end. The mouth feel is soft and lets the beer sit upon the palate quite awhile, dry finish. Very nice brew.

nickd717 (3601) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 9, 2009
Tap at Toronado for Belgian-Inspired beer dinner. Hazy golden color with a white head. Funky aroma with Brett, wood, and dry white wine. Flavor very sour and funky with lots of lemon, unripe white grapes, and barrel notes. Low carbonation, medium body with sharp sourness on the palate. Good but a bit overhyped.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - JUN 9, 2009
batch #2 bottle shared by sparky27. pale orange brown pour with a smidge of a white head which doesn’t want to stick around. it smells...smoky. i wasn’t expecting that at all...intoxicating.... woody, tart, dry crisp white wine and just a touch of stink. loads of barrel toast/soft smoke in the flavor as well... tart grapes, white wine/leaning on ml chardonnay, yeast, tart lemon and a pineapple-like sourness which grows as it warms. the tannins fight the tartness and battle it out on my cheeks. very low carbonation... almost nil which makes it insanely smooth and lux. unusual for sure but i really dig it! 9/4/8/5/17/4.3

BOLTZ7555 (2938) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 2, 2009
Bottle shared by Sparky27 @ Hellbilly’s Holiday Tasting. THANKS ERIC!!! Batch 2. 14 karat pour with a razor thin white head that left very little lacing. Aroma that hit me initially was one of cinnamon, spice, and unripened citrus. Minimal carbonation and somewhat thin, this one is dominated by sour lemon zest, lime juice, and oak. Another solid sour.

Bottle shared by Sparky27 at hellbilly’s holiday tasting. Pours a hazy peach color with a small head. Funk, vinegar and sour fruit in the aroma. Flavor is all of the above with a bit of wood and lemon zest. A great sour! Thanks Eric.
